I got into a car accident on May 2, 2008. I was Rear ended by the car behind me. The insurance of the lady that hit me has accepted liability for the incident. I have neck and back pain because of the accident. I went to my doctor and he said that I am suffering from whiplash. He also said it would hurt more in a couple of days which it did. Advised me not to go to work for a week. I dont want to get paid using my sick leave. Can I have the insurance company pay for it? and up to how much compensation can I ask them since I was hurt?

You are entitled to be compensated for Loss wages. You need to retain documents such as time sheet or letters from the employer showing that you were off from work due to a car accident. Call us at 213.388.7070 if you need representation to obtain a reasonable settlement for your loss wages, pain and suffering and future treatments (if any).
