1.5 我如何添加或更改索赔上的律师?

December 20, 2018

若要在您的索赔上添加,更改或删除律师,请按照《律师变更表》上的说明进行操作。将填妥并签署的表格上传到您的索赔中。请注意,如果您要添加或更换律师,您和您的律师还需要随表格提交某些文件。一旦VCF收到填妥的表格和任何所需文件,我们就将对您的索赔作出适当的更新,这些更新包括接收信函的人及能够接触在线索赔的人。

如果您需要在索赔上更改或删除您的律师,则应提交《律师变更表》。 您不应仅出于更改律师的目的而提交新的注册或索赔。 即使已经对您现有的索赔做出了裁决或支付了索赔,并且您打算对其进行修改以添加新的疾病或寻求额外赔偿,这也适用。一旦您提交《律师变更表》,VCF将更新您现有的索赔,而您的新律师将能够代表您提交任何修改或文件。

VCF FAQ

1.3 是否有任何情况可以加快对我的索赔的审核?

October 17, 2018

有。在涉及绝症或重大经济困难的情况下,您可以要求VCF加快处理您的索赔。VCF认为“重大财务困难”包括迫在眉睫或待决的法拍或驱逐程序,水电煤气中断或其他类似情况,如适当的文件所示。如果您想根据绝症诊断或经济困难寻求快速处理您的索赔,您必须拨打VCF的求助热线1-855-885-1555,并将任何适当的文件上传到您的索赔上。您还必须提交完整的《索赔表》和所有必需的证明文件,以便VCF拥有处理您的索赔所需的信息。如果您由律师代理您的VCF索赔,您应该寻求律师的帮助。VCF将审核该请求,并通常在48小时内通知您是否接受或拒绝该请求。在批准加急处理的索赔中,假设您已提交所有必需文件,VCF通常在短到3-4周内可以处理索赔,作出裁决,并处理付款。在这些情况下,一旦发出裁决书,就会立即发出索赔付款,而您保留在三十天申诉期内上诉的权利。
