Victim Restitution in Los Angeles
If you or a family member has sustained injury or other damages as a direct result of a crime, then you may be eligible to receive financial compensation in the form of victim restitution. Victim restitution is the restitution provided by the person who committed the crime. In order to obtain this, the perpetrator must first be convicted of the crime in question. You must then communicate to the court about the losses you have suffered. If the perpetrator, or the perpetrator's family, has the means, then the court may order them to provide you with compensation.

Victims of Property Negligence
Property owners and managers are legally obligated to provide a safe and secure space for visitors. When they fail to take the measures necessary to providing adequate security on their grounds, they can be held liable should a visitor or visitors suffer harm as a result of a crime. This liability may require that they provide compensation for the victim's related expenses, including medical care, property damage, pain and suffering, or loss of income.
