A crime scene is the site of any violent or aggressive action committed towards another person(s). They include homicide, attempted murder, murder-suicide, assault, home invasion with injury, domestic violence and other violent crimes. We specialize in blood and body fluid removal and decontamination at crime scenes (residential and commercial properties and vehicles).
Crossroads Crime & Trauma Scene Cleaning is fully equipped and trained to respond to any situation for the removal, cleaning and decontamination of blood and body fluids and body matter, fingerprint dust removal, and the proper disposal of all bio hazardous materials. Because of our attention to detail where evidence at a crime scene may have been overlooked, we are the preferred crime scene cleaning company for many law enforcement agencies since we will stop the cleaning process and call the police back to the scene.
The cost of crime scene cleaning of homicides, assaults, home invasions, murder-suicide, and domestic violence are generally covered by the Texas Crime Victims’ Compensation fund (CVC). The cleanup costs must directly relate to the removal of crime scene elements that may cause further trauma to the victim or family members.
To be eligible to receive benefits under the CVC program, some criteria that must be met are-
The CVC program is administered by the Texas Attorney General. CVC pays a set amount for crime scene cleaning, blood removal, etc. for each victim that is covered. CVC does not pay for any repair or restoration cost; however, if the police have removed certain articles for evidence, there may be coverage for those items.
Murder-Suicides: Although the victim will most likely be covered by CVC, the perpetrator will not. In situations where there are multiple victims, and one or more perpetrators, only the victims will be eligible for CVC.
