Fawzia Khan & Associates - RAF claims
Motor accidents often leave victims stranded at roadsides, and commonly involve physical and emotional trauma.
It may be difficult at the time, but it is important to take the details of the other driver; name, address, car insurance details, contact number, identity/passport number and license details. Take photos of the damages incurred due to the motor accident, so that you have a good record to provide your insurance, the police and your attorneys with.
You need to report the accident to the police within 48 hours, whereupon you will be given a case number, which both your insurance and attorneys will need.
How to claim
Before claiming, it is important to first find out whether your claim is valid. For this reason it is recommended that you first see Fwazia & Associates for a consultation. Once you know you have a potential case, the first step is to write the personal injury claim up on a statutory claim form.
The purpose of the form is to officially document the time and location at which the accident took place, the personal details of the claimant and other parties involved in the accident, and details of the vehicles. The claim form will also contain an affidavit of a description of how the accident happened, witness statements and their personal details, police reports and a medical report by the treating medical practitioner and associated hospital and medical records.
In order to prove a motor vehicle accident claim, you will need to show that the driver of the other vehicle was in some way negligent, signifying that the accident could otherwise have been avoided. The claim process is complicated and can be confusing, which is why it is important to consult an expert, such as those at Fwazia & Associates.
