When does employee get lost wages even though employer never stopped paying him?

In Bullard v. Alfonso, an opinion by Senior Justice Carrico, the Virginia Supreme Court citing the collateral source rule held that the trial court erred in refusing to allow a personal injury plaintiff to seek lost wages at trial, when in fact the plaintiff's employer never stopped paying him during the six months he was unable to work.
