What is the Road Accident Fund (RAF)?

The RAF is a statutorily created fund financed from levies on fuel and the statutory insurer of all drivers on the roads within the borders of South Africa. It is the only entity liable for and dealing with all Third Party Claims.

In terms of the Road Accident Fund Act No. 56 of 1996, the Fund is a juristic person whose object is the payment of fair and just compensation in accordance with the Act for injury or death resulting from the negligent driving of motor vehicles on South African roads.

A claimant with a Third Party Claim that complies with all the requirements of the Act is compelled by law to institute his/her claim against the Road Accident Fund and may not legally claim from the wrongdoer. The liability of the RAF is limited to damages arising from bodily injury only (damage to property like a vehicle or clothing has to be claimed from the wrongdoer directly)

Due to constantly changing statutory requirements and the fact that the Road Accident Fund is a litigious opponent with unlimited resources, Road Accident Fund claims are difficult, timely and expensive to institute and finalise. We have the necessary professional and financial resources, complimented by a large team of medical and other experts to handle and litigate the complicated claims. Personal attention is given to every client and every case.
