Why You Need an Attorney to Finalize Your Claim?

Road Accident Fund

Why you need an attorney to finalize your claim?

There is a growing trend by the road accident fund to try and apportion blame to you if you were a driver or pedestrian. As lawyers skilled in this branch of law we can determine whether blame should be apportioned to you and if so, then how much blame should be apportioned.

Our investigations will involve:

  • Visiting the scene of the accident with you,
  • Conducting an inspection of the accident area and taking photographs,
  • Making detailed proposals for a fair and reasonable settlement of the merits on your behalf,
  • If the merits are complex, then we will employ an accident reconstruction expert who will furnish us with a report and if necessary attend the trial to give evidence on your behalf.

The Road Accident Fund has also recently been rejecting claims for general damages (pain and suffering) on the basis that the injuries are not serious. If this occurs, we lodge an appeal to the Health Professions Council of South Africa and furnish all the expert reports to the HPCSA and ask that they overrule the Road Accident Fund’s decision to reject your claim for general damages.

We also if necessary, launch review proceedings in the High Court. Loss of earnings can also be complex and requires you to instruct competent medical experts who are experienced in dealing with the injuries sustained and more importantly it’s consequences and impact it has had on you.

And finally, if warranted the matter will be taken to trial or arbitration. Our firm employs only the most experienced, reputable and respected advocates in the field of personal injury law who will present and argue your case to ensure you are awarded the maximum compensation.
