The Road Accident Fund (RAF) is a government insurance institution that provides financial assistance to victims of road accidents. The RAF covers expenses such as medical bills, financial support if you are left unable to work and funeral costs. The RAF applies to cyclists, motorcyclists, vehicle drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

Making a personal injury claim for road accident injuries

Making a direct claim against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) can be a difficult and expensive task, and when it comes to obtaining successful compensation, the odds are not in your favour. Claiming directly from the RAF can lead to low settlements, and they may reject your claim if you don’t have the correct documents and legal knowledge to win. 

Working with an experienced and reputable legal team such as Adendorff Attorneys Inc. can make all the difference in securing a large financial pay-out from the RAF for your serious injuries sustained in a road accident in South Africa or for a loss of support claim as a result of the tragic death of a breadwinner in your family. Our experienced team will support you through the claim process, making the journey to receiving your pay-out an easier one.

Here’s how the process works:

  • Contact us to review your claim for a serious injury and determine if it is valid. There is no fee for this consultation. 
  • If your injuries are deemed serious, we will enter into a no-win, no-fee agreement with you. We will investigate the various aspects of your case, request all necessary documentation from the police, hospitals or school authorities, and have your injuries evaluated by our team of medical experts.
  • We will submit your claim to the RAF and deal with them directly on your behalf. We will update you on your case and support you through the process of waiting for your pay-out. Our zero-fee guarantee applies: No fees unless we win.
