Domestic Violence Victim Assistance
 
 


The District Attorney’s Victim-Witness Assistance Program will help victims of domestic violence obtain compensation. The victim has the right to file a civil suit for losses suffered as a result of the abuse, including medical expenses, loss of earnings, and other expenses for injuries sustained and damage to property, and any other related expenses incurred by the victim or any agency that shelters the victim.

Representatives of the program are available at district attorney offices, various police and sheriff stations, and city attorney offices throughout the county. For more information visit a list of victim advocates in the City of Los Angeles or telephone 213-974-7499.

In addition to insuring victim rights and assisting in obtaining restitution and compensation, representatives of the Victim-Witness Assistance Program counsel crime victims and their families, provide referrals to social agencies, assist crime victims through the difficult court process, and help promptly return property used in evidence.

The program gives special attention to child victims, the elderly, victims of sexual assault, victims of domestic violence and victims with disabilities. Crime scene response is provided on certain high trauma crimes. Bilingual staff members are available to assist Spanish-speaking victims. Escorts to court and security for victims and witnesses who are threatened are also arranged by the Victim Program. For additional information visit the Los Angeles District Attorney’s web page.
