Since 2008, legislation has curtailed the types of claims that accident victims can make against the Road Accident Fund. In addition, problems with claim settlements have become far more widespread.
The Road Accident Fund is designed to help protect victims of accidents – but naturally, it’s not properly equipped to manage claims against itself, in which claimants need to challenge unfair outcomes or long delays.
As a claimant, you have a much better chance of securing a fair, timely settlement if you have advice and guidance from a properly qualified attorney. A suitably experienced attorney can also help you navigate the complexities involved in making a claim, and, potentially, make a real difference to the amount of compensation you receive.
Why consider DSC Attorneys?
DSC Attorneys is a Cape Town law firm that specialises in personal injury cases, with a focus especially on road accident claims. The firm was formed in 2004, when three firms – each with a long history in the field of personal injury law – merged.
Each of the firm’s two directors has been closely involved with the Road Accident Fund.
Cliff Timms was employed by the Road Accident Fund for a number of years, enabling him to provide an “inside” perspective of its workings. The firm’s other director, Kirstie Haslam, has been heavily engaged in the on-going parliamentary process surrounding proposed amendments to the Road Accident Fund legislation.
All attorneys at the firm are highly experienced in personal injury law and offer many years of combined experience in handling Road Accident Fund claims.
At DSC Attorneys, clients also have access to the firm’s extensive panel of top medico-legal and other specialists, to assist them in obtaining the personal injury compensation they deserve.
