Road Accident Fund Claims
Experts in this Area of Law
Since 2008 there were major changes in the Road Accident Fund Legislation (RAF). Road accident victims who now seek to claim damages will have to prove that they have sustained serious injuries. In order to achieve this, you would require a firm of attorneys who are willing to thoroughly investigate your claim and leave no stone unturned. This will entail giving you access to the best and most experienced doctors, therapists and specialists who will then furnish us with medico legal reports to ensure that your claim is successful.
It’s become a common practice for the Road Accident Fund to reject an injured person’s claim as not serious and hence refusing to compensate them. Our firm has been successful in such matters where clients have been unsuccessful in claiming from the Road Accident Fund either directly or using another law firm. We have in numerous instances appealed against such findings either to the HPSCA or to the courts for review of such unfair and rash decisions and have won compensation for our clients often running into millions of rands.
A recent victory for our client involved a matter that went to court where we secured a victory for the minor of almost R8 000 000 (R8 million rands). The Road Accident Fund was aggrieved with the decision and tried to overturn it. Once again, our team of experienced attorneys and senior counsel were successful in opposing this. The Road Accident Fund, in addition to been ordered to pay the client’s damages had to also pay an additional R1 400 000 (R1,4 million rands) in interest to our client for the delays it caused.
