FAQ: How do I make up for my lost wages until I get my settlement?

If you were seriously injured in an accident, you might not be able to work while you are recovering. This could result in lost income, which could put you in a financially precarious situation. To make up for lost wages until you get your settlement, you could turn to:

  • Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, if you have it
  • Personal savings
  • Family and friends
  • Long- or short-term disability insurance
