Paul du Plessis Attorneys in South Africa can help you claim against the Road Accident Fund if you have suffered injury or loss in a motor accident.
What is the Road Accident Fund?
The South African Road Accident Fund, previously known as “Third Party Claims”, is a public insurance cover in cases of vehicle accidents caused by negligent driving. In many instances, the negligent driver responsible for the accident is unable to pay for the fees or claims against them due to a low-earning income or lack of insurance. The Road Accident Fund was formed to assist the victims and the driver in such situations. The Fund ensures that you, as a victim of a car accident, can still receive compensation for your injuries and losses, regardless of the responsible driver’s financial capabilities.
What can I claim?
The Fund can cover claims for general damages, medical expenses present and future, loss of income and, in the case of a death, loss of support too. You can submit a claim online, but if you are unsure of the legal jargon involved, or not sure what you should be claiming for, you can speak to an attorney. Paul du Plessis Attorneys, based in Pretoria, are professional legal advisors who can guide and advise you through the process. They understand that dealing with legal matters in the wake of an accident can be stressful, which is why they have a no win – no fee policy. They also cover all expenses related to quantifying claims.
