                                                         Delayed Graduation ? - You May Have a Wageloss Claim

 

 Your wageloss claim can take many different forms. You don't necessarily need to have missed time from a job to be entitled to a "wageloss claim".

A good example of this is a claim for "delayed graduation".  If you're attending school when you accident occurs and your injuries delay your graduation, you may be able to successfully make this type of a claim.

Here's the idea.

If your car accident injuries delay your graduation, then your entry into the workforce is delayed.

Let's say that you were taking a course in auto mechanics. And let's just say that your injuries  from your car accident delayed your graduation from this course six months.

You're claim for "delayed graduation" would be for the six months in wage that you would have earned as an auto mechanic had you graduated on time.

Have a look at the case of  Rezaei v. Piedale where Etienne Orr-Ewing and Meghan Neathway ( both lawyers with McComb Witten)  got a judge to award Miss Rezaei two years of earnings. The judge's reasoning was that, because of her injuries, there was a substantial possibility that Miss Rezaei was going to graduated two years later than should would have had her accident not taken place.
