What is the Road Accident Fund (RAF)?
The RAF (Road Accident Fund), is an organisation that provides compulsory cover to all South African road users, citizens and foreigners alike. This organisation is responsible for providing appropriate cover to victims of road accidents and their families. The RAF provides two types of cover: compensation for victims of vehicle accidents who have suffered personal injury or their family members who have been injured, as well as indemnity cover to wrongdoers.
Claiming for RAF
The claim procedure for RAF cover requires the collection of comprehensive information which supports the claim being submitted. This includes a variety of documentation such as:
- an affidavit
- hospital records
- witness statements
- accident reports
- various medical reports depending on the type of injury
Claimants may choose to take sole responsibility for their claim, or they can employ an attorney to handle it for them.
By getting a professional attorney to help you with your RAF claims or queries, you can ensure that the process is handled correctly from the very beginning.
