Legal Question in Criminal Law in California

I have been offered a settlement amount to repair damages my parked car received in a DUI hit and run case. The amount offered is only equal to the repair estimate amount. In California, am I entitled to loss of use compensation? If I counter the offer, will I jepordize the amount initially offered?
