AttyHaymond,

My brother was in a very bad car accident and was out of work for weeks.  We live together and neither of us is married so I left my job temporarily in order to help him to recover when he got out of the hospital..  I lost over two months of pay because of this accident.

Can I recover money for my lost wages due to my brother’s accident?
