Why Do You Need to File an Injury Claim?
For many survivors of human trafficking, the thought of going to court in pursuit of damages can seem initially overwhelming and possibly confusing. Many believe that they should be automatically given restitution after their abuser or trafficker was arrested and convicted. However, the criminal justice system stands separately from civil courts, meaning you have to pursue an injury claim on your own.
- The compensation you are owed can cover many types of damages, like:
- Medical costs
- Rehabilitative care
- Therapy for traumatization
- Lessened enjoyment of life
- Financial instability due to difficulty keeping employment
- Legal costs associated with criminal and civil proceedings
