Are there other ways I can be compensated for my losses related to the crime?

  • You can also file a civil lawsuit against your offender or a liable third party (e.g. if your landlord fails to supply sufficient lighting or other security measures) for recovery for your losses.  If you decide to file a civil lawsuit, you will need to see an attorney who will explain your choices and advise you.
  • If the crime occurred during the course of employment or arising out of employment, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits.  The workers' compensation benefits you may be eligible to receive are: medical care, payment for lost wages, payment for permanent disability, rehabilitation or death benefits.
  • If the crime is related to a vehicle, you may qualify for benefits under an automobile insurance policy or MVAIC
  • You may be eligible for compensation from other sources such as: mortgage insurance, homeowner's/renter's insurance, liability insurance, disability (private or state), veteran's benefits, social security benefits or a funeral/burial policy.
