According to Bloomberg, survivors of the deadly Asiana plane crash at SFO last month will be offered compensation by the airline.

Asiana plans to pay an initial compensation of $10, 000 to each passenger who survived the July 6 crash.

The amount is supposed to cover medical expenses and transportation.

The report says passengers can still sue the airline even after accepting the compensation.

Three people died when the plane struck a seawall short of the runway at SFO.

More than 300 people on-board survived the crash.
