Can I include lost wages on an auto insurance claim?


Answer by  Rose (6804)

Yes, however insurance companies are not required to pay you fro lost wages. It does not hurt to get the information to the insurance company. You will need to prove how much you would have made during that time and that you could not work. It is up to you to prove that you could not work.

Real losses due to an accident are approprite for any claim. However, whether or not the insurance will cover the claim depends highly on the situation - especially where the fault lies and the various insurance riders in effect. In some cases, it may be necessary to sue offending party.

You should be able to claim lost wages on an auto insurance claim. I, personally, was rear-ended in 2000, and was able to claim, and receive complensation for three days of lost work. The company that provided the payment, by the way, was Geico. My own insurance company, Allstate, also had that benefit available, if needed.

Any "casualty loss" you claim on your 1040 tax return "must be sudden and unexpected", major rule here. It can even be your fault, but you need proof (police report, insurance claim, etc.). But unless it's over $10,000, it probably won't help you. And if the insurance company reimbursed you for everything, forget getting anything more.
