Re: Loss of Use of a Go-Kart
no and no. If you hadn't taken a vacation day, you still would not have a loss and renting a kart is not a loss either.
This is why I asked if in the future, should I NOT use a vacation day to cover a lost day of work, and should I have rented a kart at $500 so I could show a loss?
How have you lost that week? You still have the week. You have lost nothing by not going fishing.
For example: If you are on your way to go on vacation for a week and are towing your fishing boat, and someone rear ends you, and you can't go fishing and lose that whole week, you are entitled to ZERO compensation, since your company was paying you and the driver did nothing but save you money?
you did not lose any money other than the damages that are already being paid for.
