If you have been the victim of a crime, you may be entitled to compensation. There are three different kinds of compensation: damages from a perpetrator, insurance compensation and criminal injury compensation from the state. To be entitled to compensation, the crime must be reported to the police. You can request damages from the perpetrator during the preliminary investigation. The court can then issue a ruling on damages during the trial. It is also possible to receive compensation through private insurance or through an employer’s or a union’s insurance. Criminal injury compensation is a state compensation that the Swedish Crime Victim Authority is responsible for.
Even if a preliminary investigation has been discontinued, you may be entitled to compensation through an insurance company or the Swedish Crime Victim Authority.
You can find more information on the Swedish Crime Victim Authority's website.
