HELP................

Can any of you Wilddogs advise/help....?  

I have sent a contact request to Oppie.... but wondered whether anoyone has info............. my son has no Medical Insurance cover or any for the bike (not a hassle)............

I seem to remember when I had my accident - I was covered 100% by 3rd Party Insurance or Road Accident Fund............

What are the procedures involved...  ???

Goose, always here to help bud.. where is the bike, do you need me to collect it and take to to a workshop.. let me know.

Road accident fund you can claim but you will wait years, my brothers claim was a year ago now and nothing. Do you have the details of the motorist, if they are covered their cover may help your son. I am not 100% sure.

shout if you need anything mate  :thumleft: no reason to feel helpless over there.. we sort things out here for you !!

Not sure - but think Adrian will help sort the bike - thanks mate!

What's of huge concern now is that the Ex has just sent us a message that Vincent Palotti have indicated that the Operation would cost R50,000 to do  :eek7: :eek7:  or they can try and set it in a cast now and "hope they get it right"  ???  bliksem...............!!

With our financial situation totally screwed, a mother that's just had a Hip replacement and a heart attack a week ago...  :-[ and no Medical aid here...... (we're on the NHS) ........ I'm really stumped as to what to suggest or do..............  ??? ???

They have indicated they could transfer him to a State Hospital............. but how/what/where............  has anyone else had same predicament???

Yikes .Sorry to hear that Goose  :o

Vincent Palotti is one of the best places could be for treatment , especially for leg injuries .  They deal with a lot of motorcycle injuries .

Regarding claiming from the Fund I can help you with that if you would like me to  . Have done quite a few motorcycle injury cases . Will need the Police case number , will see whether it has been reported.

The Road Accident should pay for the hospital and other medical expenses ( less the proportion that he is held liable for ) . Once you lodge a RAF claim , the hospitals will wait for payment as they will get their funds from the RAF . With the new system they don't pay out much more than medical costs and loss of earnings unless you have permanent medical damages.

Re the motorcycle damages , he may be able to sue the other driver , depending who is most guilty. Let me know if I can help , or just give some moral support .

Goose, try to have it done in a state hospital. There is nothing wrong with it. 

my call is Grootte Schuur, UCT side. 

The risks to leave it for another week is just too big. he's gonna kak himself with pain as well.  if he can be operated tonight or early tomorrow he will be able to start physio in two days time. Minimises the risks of DVT as well.

Just saw your latest post now Goose.

 If the Private hospital is not sure of payment either from the client or the RAF, they do send patients to the goverment hospitals. Will need more information from the Private hospital, from him and from the SAP statements ,to see if he qualifies and if the hospuital will wait for their payment from the RAF

Government hospital will be less financial risk for him ( and you ) now as in case the RAF reduces payments to him pro rata ( if he is say 30% liable ) then at least you don't have to bear the excess between what the RAF pays and the bill. Would need much more information about the type of operation required etc .

I agree. goverment hospitals have good doctors ( even if the other amenities are not great )

Glad it sounds like things are calming down to a mild panic....


Goose, it is the one thing about these forums and fraternities you and I were just talking about yesterday afternoon when you took the pic of the book in the downstairs toilet..... maybe you should post the pic here for a smile from everyone.

We are all there for each other, and need to always remember that.

We are who we are because of what we are (or something like that)


Like I said to you earlier, shout if there is anything we can help with.

If someone in CT will run a fund (Rynet?), I will make the first donation to help get him on the mend.

Goose - followed this thread on my iPhone between meetings - had planned to visit him late afternoon, and then to  see he's out of hospital already! (well, for now).

So I will make a plan to visit him after his op.

Wish him well from all us Dogs - had noticed you and he had put down your names 1st and 2nd for the weekend away, and was keen to see yo guys.

Cheers

+1 niks fout met die Chirurge of teaters in daai hospitaal nie. Hulle kan Carl Bremer toe ook gaan, my arm is destyds daar gedoen. Maar ek dink UCT hospitaal by Grootte Schuur gaan 'n goeie roep wees.
