What law controls a claim if a statute is amended after the date of the criminal act?

(1) The criminal act occurs when the perpetrator commits the criminal conduct. The statute in effect at the time the criminal act occurred, as defined in RCW 7.68.020(5), is the controlling law. The limited total claim benefit of fifty thousand dollars effective April 1, 2010, which applied retroactively to claims filed on or after July 1, 1981, expired effective July 1, 2015.
(2) The cap of forty thousand dollars on nonmedical benefits pursuant to RCW 7.68.070(1) remains in effect. Medical benefits for claims filed on or after July 1, 1981, have been extended to one hundred fifty thousand dollars per claim pursuant to RCW 7.68.085.
