Can I collect the wages I lost because of the wreck?

QUESTION:

Can I collect the wages I lost because of the wreck?

AND THE ANSWER IS:

Under South Carolina law a person can collect for the time they missed from their work because of a wreck.  This is so even if you had to use your sick leave, PTO or vacation time.  The defendant should not be rewarded because you had built up days off at work.
