Victims of road accidents receive assistance

2018-10-31 06:00

The Road Accident Fund (RAF) will conduct a one-day public outreach programme in Qwaqwa on Saturday (03/11).

Assistance will be rendered for a range of matters by the staff of the agency, and staff will provide road accident victims professional assis­tance regarding their cases.

The outreach campaign will be held at the multi-functional office of the Kamohelo Hall at the Manapo Regional Hospital in Phuthaditjhaba from 08:00 to 16:00.

Information will be provided to victims and claimants – basically everyone affected by road accidents.

Assistance will pertain to, among other issues, the direct registering of new claims, consolidation of required claim compliance documents, settlement offers, reporting of cases in­volving alleged touting and the mis­appropriation of RAF payments by unscrupulous attorneys.

Affected community members are advised to bring their ID documents for enquiries and information on their claim.

Other important information required for new claims includes police case numbers, accident reports, hospital reports, vehicle registrations, invoices and details of other parties involved in the road accident.

People who are unable to attend the event are encouraged to visit the RAF at the customer service centre at 42 Charlotte Maxeke Street in Bloemfontein.

The RAF is also easily accessible at six hospital service centres.

These centres are based at the Pelonomi Hospital in Bloemfontein, Bongani Hospital in Welkom, Manapo Hospital in Qwaqwa, Parys Hospital in Parys, Boitumelo Hospital in Kroonstad and the Thebe Hospital in Harrismith.
