Compensation for Relocation

Some crimes are traumatic enough that the victim cannot stay in the same home - or even the same city.

In cases such as these, victims may be able to receive compensation for relocation costs. These costs can include:

  • Moving expenses
  • Utility fees and deposits
  • Pet deposits
  • Rental costs
  • Transportation
  • Storage costs up to 3 months

How Can a Criminal Victim Lawyer Help You?

The courts and the Texas Department of Public Safety do their best to fully compensate victims. However, it’s all too often that their compensation doesn’t cover all costs you’ve incurred.

When the state cannot get you full compensation, an assault injury lawyer works to bridge that gap.

Filing a civil lawsuit allows the defendant potential compensation for emotional damages, mental trauma, and other damage that the state or courts cannot recognize.
