Recovering Wages After Being A Victim of a Crime

If you’ve been injured as the victim of a crime, you may be eligible to recover compensation for lost wages.

Residents of Washington State who have suffered injury as an innocent victim of a crime are protected against short-term lost wages or long-term disability. In much the same way as worker’s compensation, crime victims compensation provides maximum benefits amounts for injured workers who have suffered from a crime.

Protecting Washington’s Innocent

Victims of a crime can suffer serious and often permanent injury, such as:

  • Serious physical injury from assault
  • Mental injury, including post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Head trauma
  • Nerve or spinal injury

On top of mounting medical bills, time lost from work or even a permanent disability that leaves you unable to perform your job can compound an already bad situation. Crime victims compensation is designed to help you.

  • If you have mounting medical bills associated with a crime, we can help.
  • If you’ve lost time at work recovering from a crime, we can help.
  • If you’ve suffered a permanent injury that impacts your ability to work, we can help.
  • If you are unable to work after being the victim of a crime, we can help.

From vocational rehabilitation to permanent partial disability, the crime victims compensation program is designed to protect innocent victims of violent crime.
