Accident Claims

Road Accident Claims

Personal Injury Law

A person who sustained an injury on a South African road can only claim from the RAF for medical expenses, loss of income or maintenance, pain and suffering or emotional shock.

No Win, No Fee

When a client and his Attorney agree to a contingency fee for services rendered by the attorney, it is referred to as no-win, no-fee. If the attorney fails to prove the road accident claim, no fee is due. 

Test For Negligence

 The claimant needs to prove that he has suffered physical injury or a loss due to the physical injury or death of a breadwinner because of the negligent driving of another.

How To Claim

When a person sustains an injury on a South African road, the injured person has to lodge a road accident claim against the RAF. Claims can be lodged directly with the RAF, but since there are numerous examples of direct claims from the RAF which were paid out at a fraction of what could be claimed, it is not advisable.

If you claim through an accident lawyer, you are protected by the Attorney Fidelity Fund [AFF], an insurance fund through which you can sue a lawyer if you have been exploited. By claiming directly from RAF, there is no such insurance. 

Avoid Hasty Direct Settlements

RAF Is Short Changing Victims

‘Accident victims who are seriously injured and who make hasty settlements with the Road Accident Fund (RAF) for what might appear to them to be a significant sum without independent legal advice or before their claims are properly quanfied, will have their whole lives to regret this,’ warn Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) Co-Chairpersons Mvuzo Notyesi and Jan van Rensburg.
