How to claim road accident fund?
This is the question everyone involved in a road accident
asks themselves, their friends and end up on this article.
Most people would like to do it themselves, I mean getting
the form filled and submitting to the Road Accident Fund (RAF) offices. Well, for
e I think it is much better to get a legal expert to do it for you. You might be
asking yourself why? The reason is that, one with their naïve knowledge in the
processes and how the payments are graded, you could get far less than what you
are supposed to get.
An attorney or a lawyer should be the one to assist you in
processing a claim to the road accident fund. They have legal perspective of
how claims works, some probably specialises on this fields, so there is less
chance of their claim to be unsatisfactory. The legal expert can negotiate for a fair amount
of money which could be equivalent of the suffering or the injury.
You can work with an attorney in two ways: either you hire
them and pay the on their normal rates or work on a contingency basis. Contingency
basis meaning that, you can only pay then only if they win the case. In this
case, you and your attorney should have to agree on a contingency percentage. Mostly
ranging between 20-30% of the paid claim.
