Essential Tips on Accident Benefits Application Completion

People find it difficult to understand that there are two different claims to work on after they are involved in an accident in which there is “use or operation of a motor vehicle”. The first of these separate claims includes the ‘no fault accident benefits’. The claims are only guaranteed if there are no issues of policy breach. The accidents benefits are meant to cover things such as attendant care benefits, medical/rehab benefits, out of pocket costs, non earner benefits and income replacement benefits. Pain and suffering are not covered by Accident Benefits.

Accident Benefits Application Completion Tips:

ASAP Action – Yes, as a victim you have to get access to the Accident Benefit package as soon as possible. Don’t wait for your insurance company!

Lawyer Help – You will need a good lawyer’s expertise assistance to complete the Accident Benefits package, especially if you’re seeing the OCF Claim form for the very first time. To make sure that you receive due compensation you have to complete the form in the right way. After you have completed the form and submitted it, you cannot retract it in any way. How the forms are completed will decide how the insurer perceives your claim. If you fill out the form in the wrong way, it will cause hindrance in your claim. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that you hire an experienced professional lawyer to get the form filled out in the right way.

OCF Mandate – It is also essential that you attach only original receipts to your OCF-6 Expenses Claim form. This particular form reimburses the victim, or his/her family members for expenses incurred that are related directly to the vehicle accident as well as subsequent treatment. You can consider attaching damaged glasses or clothing from the accident or parking receipts (from parking lot of the hospital). You cannot simply jot down such expenses on your OCF-6 form. Original receipt attachments are necessary. Make sure that you have copies of the original receipts for your own record (of what you have sent).

Apart from the above essentials, you also need to get the claim forms submitted as soon as you can. However, ensure that a lawyer has checked the forms prior to submission. You need to submit the Accident Benefit forms to the insurance company ASAP but don’t hurry. Professional help is a must to ensure that compensation is paid in full.
