Oklahoma Crime Victims Compensation (OCVC) may
be available if you or someone you love suffered
physical or psychological injury due to a violent crime
that occurred anywhere in the state of Oklahoma.
OCVC may provide compensation for these UNREIMBURSED
expenses related to the crime:
|Medical, dental, and prescriptions||Counseling and Rehabilitation for the victim||Grief counseling for families of homicide victims|
|Traditional healing||Crime scene cleanup||Funeral and burial expenses|
|Work loss and replacement of services the victim would have performed if not for the injury||Loss of support for dependents of a deceased victim, and replacement of services the victim would have performed if not for the crime||Mileage reimbursement for medical, dental, and counseling appointments for the victim|
The crime should be reported to law enforcement within
72 hours, and a claim should be filed within one year of
the injury or death of the victim. Reporting and filing
deadlines may be waived and extended if the OCVC board
finds there is a good cause for the delay, or if the victim
was a minor or incapacitated adult.
