The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board provides financial assistance for innocent victims of crime. The Board may compensate victims who suffer physical injury by helping with medical expenses and by providing payment for part of their lost wages.
In cases of homicide, the Board may assist with funeral expenses and loss of support on the part of the victim's dependants. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board operates under the auspices of the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.
