Victims of violent acts have in many cases suffered a psychological trauma, i.e. an injury to the soul, which requires specialist care. In addition, the immediate period after the trauma is a very difficult phase for the victims, during which active victim support in necessary. The Act on Compensation for Victims of Violent Crimes (OEG) regulates that crime victims or their surviving dependents receive assistance upon application. In Rhineland-Palatinate, the OEG is implemented by the State Office for Social Affairs, Youth and Supply. Persons who have been the victim of a violent crime and have filed a corresponding complaint can receive acute treatment in our trauma outpatient clinic within the framework of the Victim Compensation Act.
