What Can I Recover Through Restitution?

Experienced Baltimore criminal defense lawyers will advise his criminal and juvenile clients that a person who’s sustained:

  • medical or burial expenses
  • out-of pocket losses
  • loss of earnings
  • the loss of property, or
  • rehabilitative expenses

as the “direct result” of a crime or juvenile act, can recover restitution. Direct result may have an imprecise legal meaning, and the outcome and results will vary based on the unique factual circumstance of each crime and each offender. Not all consequences of crime are “direct results” and therefore may be avoided in a restitution judgment. An experienced criminal defense attorney can often play a critical role in ensuring that, where restitution is just and appropriate, the amount does not result in a double recovery.
