How will my claim be evaluated?

The claim will be evaluated based upon the law, and based upon the information that you provide. If you have not provided all of the necessary information, we will let you know, in writing, what additional information is needed.

Claims filed during the initial claims period will be reviewed by the Tort Victims′ Compensation Program staff, who will mail you an "Administrative Determination" stating whether you should receive money from the Fund, and, if so, how much. If you agree with the Administrative Determination, you do not need to do anything more. If you disagree with the Administrative Determination, you have the right to have your claim heard and determined by an Administrative Law Judge. At the trial you can testify, present testimony of other witnesses, and present any other relevant evidence.
