Road Accident Fund (RAF) Claims and Ayush healthcare

Everyone can register for a Road Accident Fund (RAF) claim to an accident and should do so as well. It is important to spend time searching for an appropriate accident fund claim and this may take a lot of your time but it is definitely worth the effort.

Online PR News – 05-January-2013 – Pretoria, South Africa – The Road Accident Fund (RAF) Claims have a special procedure to file for a claim. There is a prescribed statutory claim form which needs to be filled out. Please make note of the fact that Form 1 is to be used for claims arising before August 01, 2008. Similarly Form RAF1 should be used for claims filed after August 2008 onwards. The statutory claim form gives the information on the applicant, the parties involved in the accident, the amount claimed and of course, the date and the place of the accident. Just like school, college or any other, you need to also provide a medical certificate or a medical report from the doctor that treated you. This is needed in most cases as a proof of the medical treatment that you were undergoing due to the accident and proves to be a very important document while claiming a road accident fund. It is more necessary than you think it is. So be sure to check whether all your medical records are in order and are appropriately printed and stored by you.

The claim form also has an attached affidavit which needs to include several details about the collision. You need to fill in the particular of the accident which includes name and address of the injured person and other important information. The affidavit also has boxes to fill in witness statements if any, police report details of any sort in the event of it being a hit and run case or any other police case. The affidavit also needs to hold hospital and medical records of any kind as well as documents and vouchers in regard to amounts claimed and discussed.

After this the claim can be submitted and waited on to be processed. Once submitted, the Road Accident Fund registers it on its internal system after making a decision as to whether the claim is valid or no, in terms of whether it was submitted on time, whether the kind of road accident complies with the legal provisions or not. The other side to consider are the degrees of faults of both parties involved as well, in order to discuss the damages, and whether a negotiation of some sort can be reached. While it is important to fill in all the details on your RAF claim form, the RAF calls the parties involved in the event of the form being incomplete to get additional details and proper supporting documentation to help solve the matter. There are certain rules regarding claims submitted after the July of 2008 so be sure of submitting the right forms and applications.
