What Compensation Is Available for You?
If you have been involved in a car accident, there are various damages for which you can be compensated.

The following are the damages you can receive if you have been a victim of a car accident in Los Angeles, CA:

  • Bodily Injury – The accident in which you were involved may have left you with severe injuries which required immediate medical attention, and you are entitled to receive compensation to help pay for the medical bills you receive for those injuries. If you require future treatment, such as surgery, physical therapy, or medication, then you can receive compensation for those future costs, too.
  • Financial Loss – The injuries you sustained may have forced you to miss work.
