The Road Accident Fund (RAF) compensates people who are injured in South African road accidents they were not solely responsible for causing.

RAF payouts assist road accident victims and their families with compensation for past and future medical costs, loss of income or loss of support from a breadwinner, funeral costs and, in cases involving serious injury, general damages. The RAF does not cover damage to vehicles or other material damages.

To get the compensation you deserve from the RAF, it’s essential to use the services of a suitably qualified personal injury attorney.

Why DSC Attorneys?

At DSC Attorneys, we specialise in road accident claims. A few reasons to consider our services:

  • our attorneys have extensive combined experience and a proven track record in securing compensation for road accident victims
  • our medico-legal expertise and connections with medical experts mean we can guide claimants in obtaining expert medical testimony (often the cornerstone of a successful RAF claim)
  • we work on a no win, no fee basis.

General attorneys, who attempt to focus on many different areas of law, may do outstanding work.

As a rule, however, it helps to have attorneys who specialise in the particular type of claim you have.

This helps ensure deep familiarity with the legal requirements and processes surrounding your claim – and with details of the compensation awarded (or offered as settlement) for similar claims in the past.

Our directors

All of DSC Attorney’s directors have extensive experience in personal injury litigation, including actions against the Road Accident Fund.

Road Accident Fund claims with DSC

Pursuing a RAF claim is a lengthy, complex process. For several reasons, we advise against submitting a RAF claim without professional legal representation.

At DSC Attorneys, we can assess your claim; help prepare supporting evidence and obtain expert medical opinions; advise you on whether any settlement offered by the RAF is in your best interests; and represent you in legal proceedings.

We listen carefully and with empathy, and keep you informed every step of the way.

If you may have a road accident claim, contact us for the best possible legal support and representation.
