PHUTHADITJHABA. – The cold snap sweeping South Africa did not stop car crash victims from heeding a call by the Road Accident Fund (RAF) to finalise their claims directly during RAF outreach events held in the Western Cape and the Free State.

The Free State event was held at the Kgola-Thuto Senior Secondary School in Phuthaditjhaba, Qwaqwa.

Altogether 1 800 claimants ignored freezing temperatures in Delft and Qwaqwa to queue from as early as 06:00 to access a wide range of services.

This included the lodging of claims, consolidation of compliance documents, status updates of claims applications, finalisation of settlement offers and the reporting of complaints or cases of alleged misconduct by unscrupulous attorneys.

Vusi Langa, regional marketing manager, said they were happy with the way people had responded to their call.

He said the turnout was a clear indication that more people were accident victims and they should come forward.

“We were here in 2014 in an effort to take services to the people and we are here again this year. We visit different communities where people need our service,” Langa said.

He said they had dealt with problems that included people who had lodged claims for the first time, those who were checking the status of their claims and many others.
