When violence or an unattended casualty occurs, recovery is the first and only thing family and friends should be concentrating on. The grieving process will take a lot out of a person and will affect a person’s judgment when attempting to handle other matters.
Unfortunately, when there’s a death in a home there are other matters that need to be addressed, such as the crime scene cleanup, the insurance coverage, what payments needs to be made and, in many cases, how those payments are going to be made.
Bio-One has worked with a number of families to get them the support they need, not only financially but emotionally as well.
Recently Bio-One was called to an unattended death cleanup in the Raleigh/Durham area. Not unlike every situation that involves a death, it was an emotional time for the family
The Bio-One team moved quickly and was able to remediate and sanitize the area, but as the grieving process began for the family there were still issues that needed to be dealt with including insurance and payments. The family contacted their home insurance but unfortunately it wasn’t going to cover the entire cost of the unattended death cleanup. However, Bio-One helped the family contact area victim advocacy groups to offset the financial impact.
There are a number of victim advocacy groups in North Carolina that offer victim services, not only financial support but emotional support, such as counseling, support groups and case workers. Families need someone helping, supporting and offering guidance during this time.
Bio-One maintains close relationships with these groups and has contacted the advocacy groups on behalf of the victim’s family.
In the above case, Bio-One was able to contact a victim’s advocacy group who helped the family by paying a portion of what was owed for the cleanup.
For those areas that don’t have an area advocacy group available, there are national advocacy groups including the National Organization for Victim Assistance and the National Center for Victims of Crime.
