(a) General rule.--Payment of an award made under Chapter 71 shall subrogate the Commonwealth, to the extent of the payment, to any right of action against any person accruing to the claimant, the direct victim or the intervenor to recover losses resulting from the crime with respect to which the award is made. In such a case, the Commonwealth shall be entitled to bring an action against the person causing or otherwise liable for the personal injuries or death for which the payment was made. Money recovered under this section shall be deposited in the Crime Victim's Compensation Fund established in section 1101(b)(1).2

The Attorney General shall enforce any subrogation. A claimant who fails to notify the Office of Victims' Services of the receipt of funds from any other claim or award arising out of the crime shall forfeit and pay to the Commonwealth an amount equal to all awards paid by the Office of Victims' Services to the claimant or on the claimant's behalf.
