Road Accident Fund Claims

Articles - Law Articles & Info

What is now known as a Road Accident Fund Claim, was previously known as a Third Party Claim. The Road Accident Fund (RAF) exists to assist individuals who require assistance with regards to claims against the actions of a person who causes an accident.

Victims of road accidents often approach the Road Accident Fund without realising that they would receive much more professional assistance and legal support from an Attorney’s  firm that has extensive experience with the claim process. Although the Road Accident Fund theoretically claims that they provide cover to all road users within the borders of South Africa for incidents arising  from the use of motor vehicles, the process becomes timely, impersonal and extremely costly.

Making use of the services of an Attorney’s firm that specialises in Road Accident Fund Claims and has the necessary experience in personal injury cases. Be aware that the Road Accident Fund has been known to dispute cases on numerous occasions and for various reasons, do not be caught off guard.  Claims against the Road Accident Fund are made up of numerous elements, the most well known of which is general damages.  The majority of people would call this a claim for pain and suffering.  The Road Accident Fund pays out a minimum for these claims, based on previous case law, generally lower than R50,000.00.

Bearing in mind that the economic climate is currently suffering, most people tend to try to save legal costs by claiming against the  Road Accident Fund themselves, thus doing themselves greater harm as the Road Accident Fund is ill-equipped to tend to claims against itself. An experienced Attorney who handles your claim against the Road Accident Fund for personal injuries suffered, will secure your claim against the “Fund” thus ensuring that you are compensated for your injury/pain and suffering/medical expenses – current and future/loss of income.

Most Attorneys will take on your case for you on a contingency basis (no win/no fee), so there is nothing for you to lose.
