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.
