FreeForm's Compensation Tool


Domestic violence costs $8.2 billion annually in the US. Survivors overwhelmingly shoulder the entire burden of their survivorship—in the way of medical costs, property damage and relocation costs—with little to no accountability on the part of the abusers themselves. Survivors of abuse can qualify for compensation through four avenues – Small Claims Court, Criminal Restitution, Tort Litigation and Victims of Crime Funding. However, many do not pursue legal recourse due to a lack of knowledge about their options and how to utilize them. FreeFrom's online self-help compensation tool provides survivors of domestic violence with the information and resources they need to pursue legal compensation for the harm they have suffered, regardless of their physical or financial limitations.
