Damages Allowed for Whiplash Injury

FREE Whiplash Injury Case Consultation1-866 INJURY 2or1-866-465-8792

A whiplash injury can leave you in pain that is long lasting. This pain can affect your life and interrupt your day to day activities. As a result, you may have to get medical care or even miss work while you recover. If your whiplash is a result of a car, truck, train or other type of accident in Los Angeles or the surrounding counties and was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another person, you can receive compensation for your physical injuries and for the other harmful effects your injury had in your life.

Financial compensation for personal injuries is referred to as damages. To maximize the damages you can receive for your whiplash and other injuries, it is important to seek the help of a LA neck injury attorney—a skilled attorney can help assist you with your claim so you get all the compensation you deserve. Many people believe they can only be reimbursed for the cost of care of their physical injuries. However, California law permits damages for many other harms that occur due to your injuries.

Client Reviews
You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you for making it so easy over e-mail for me. I'm a busy working mom of an Autistic 5 year old son and you guys were great. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Edna G.
