The United States Federal Crime Victims’ Fund, operated by the U.S. Office for Victims of Crime is primarily used to compensate victims of crimes against federal law in the United States. The fund has been established as a part of the Victims of crimes Act of 1984. The Victims Fund also provides financial aid to victims who have been subjected to violence or other tortuous acts by persons other than those involved in their crime, and to their family members.
There are different types of compensation available for crime victim, depending on the type of crime that has been committed. If you have been the victim of robbery, theft or assault, then you can get compensation. You may also be able to claim damages if you have been a victim of kidnapping, rape, torture, child molestation or any other type of crime that has caused emotional injury. There are also some types of crime victims’ compensation that can be claimed by victims who have suffered because of an accident and need to replace their medical expenses. Victims who have suffered due to being forced into becoming a sex worker are also entitled to claim compensation from the government. They are entitled to get compensation because they may have been victims of human trafficking or other forms of sexual exploitation.
A crime victim is entitled to get compensation because he or she is not able to pay the full amount that has been agreed upon. If the victim has sustained damages because of a crime that has resulted in jail time, then the victim can sue the person who committed the crime to get his or her compensation. When filing a claim, the victim should remember that he or she will not be able to get any money until all claims are paid.
