Tort Law Tidbit – Criminal Injuries Compensation Subrogation

Did you know that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Act has a subrogation provision?

T.C.A. Sec. 29-013-113 requires that a crime victim who receives payments under the Act and later receives damages in a civil action re-pay the State for monies received under the Act. If a civil action is filed the local DA and others must be sent a copy of the complaint and all subsequent pleadings.
