For New Yorkers, survivors may have their forensic health examinations be compensated. Of course, the privacy of the survivor is ensured with this repayment and it also makes sure that survivors do not shell out money for forensic health exams. The state also provides HIV testing for survivors.
Survivors can also file for a crime victim’s compensation application if the survivor required medical treatment in relation to their abuse. They may also recover or get compensated if they ever lose personal property or earnings, and if they spend other medical or psychiatric fees to help them cope up with their assault if they applied to this program.
Moreover, survivors can also file a civil lawsuit to get compensation in relation to the damages resulting from the assault.
