A portion of proceeds awarded in car accident cases are usually for lost wages and income. This is money that a victim did, or would in the future miss out on due to injuries sustained in the crash that left he or she unable to work.

Lost wages should never be confused with "lost earning capacity", as they are two different types of damages.
