Victims of Violent Crime Statute

A person who has sustained physical injury as a direct result of a crime of violence, or is legally dependent for support upon a person who has sustained physical injury or death as a direct result of a crime of violence (or, in the event of a death caused by a crime of violence, has legally assumed or voluntarily paid the medical or burial expenses incurred as a direct result thereof) may qualify for indemnification by the State of California for the out-of-pocket wages, medical and/or burial expenses incurred as a result of the crime (California Government Code, Section 13900, et seq.). Claims must be filed with the State Board of Control for the State of California. The Statute provides that, absent certain extenuating circumstances, a claimant has one year from the date of the crime to file his or her claim with the State Board of Control.
