As soon as your claim is processed, the legal proceedings begin. You may be required to testify in person as well as having motivators testify on your behalf. Usually your legal representative will conduct the majority of the administration and presentation of evidence, however you must be prepared to appear in person if need be.
Depending on the success of your claim, the RAF will award you compensation after the judgement has been passed and any appeals process has been completed. Although the process is largely handled exclusively by the RAF and those representing you, you must be willing to oblige with the RAF on any matter pertaining to your claim.
