Is the compensation payment from the Schadefonds the same as an (injury) damage compensation or compensation?
You receive a one-off compensation payment from the Schadefonds, which is intended as financial support. This is not damage compensation.
If you are the victim of a violent crime and you have or have had serious injuries as a result, the compensation payment will be between € 1,000 and € 35,000. If you are a surviving relative of a victim of a violent crime or wrongful death or a close relativeof a victim with serious and permanent injuries, you will receive a fixed amount of € 5,000. In addition, as a surviving relative, you can receive an extra compensation for funeral costs and for the damage that you suffer due to the loss of income from the deceased.
