Restitution is the repayment for expenses a victim incurred as a direct result of the crime committed against her or him. If criminal charges are filed, the defendant is convicted, and you incurred expenses as a direct result of the crime, you may be eligible for restitution.
Restitution may include any out-of-pocket expenses such as: unreimbursed medical bills, property damage or loss, lost wages, insurance deductibles, and other expenses not covered by insurance.
A judge will determine whether restitution is to be paid and in what amount; you may be required to attend a hearing for this.
