Aside from lost wages, you may also miss out and claim for factors such as:

  • Promotions
  • Fringe benefits
  • Any commission
  • Any bonuses
  • Pension benefits

If by the time you can return to work, your position is gone, you can also have a claim for:

  • The difference in pay between the two jobs if the new job pays less
  • The length of time you have to work at the lower-paying job
  • The amount of time you were searching for a new job and how much cost-of-life was during that period of time
