In criminal law, a victim of crime is identified as a person who is individually harmed directly by a perpetrator. In the case of white collar crimes, there may not be a clear, direct link. Whether you have been victimized by aggravated assault or battery, murder, voluntary or involuntary manslaughter, abandonment or abuse of a child and stalking or kidnapping. Victims of crimes are not just the victim but the victim’s family and dependents. This includes deceased victims as well as any individual who assume funeral or medical expenses. The effects are numerous and detrimental. A large aspect of the consequences of crimes can be emotional distress, including psychological problems, such as fear, anxiety, self-blame, anger and shame. All of these conditions are associated with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
