If the shop was negligent and/or simply did not do the repair they promised, then you can hold them liable for all of the "reasonably forseeable" consequences of their failure and that would include not only the aditional expenses to repair the truck, but your lost income which results from the loss of the truck. I assume you will get a new job and should you should not expect to get paid by the repair shop shile you sit at home, but rather you should be looking for a new job because in a case like this you are required to do what you can to lessen the impact - what we call "mitigating damages".
All the best,
YES - but you must prove that yoou lost the wages because of the shop's negligence and not for any other reason!
