The legislation and law governing the Road Accident Fund are continually evolving.
The Road Accident Fund is aiming to persuade members of the public to avoid hiring an attorney. Siyamthanda Buku Attorneys Inc., on the other hand, has demonstrated time and time again that without the counsel of professional attorneys like Siyamthanda Buku Attorneys Inc., it is impossible to succeed.
Road Accidents Claims can be extremely difficult to file and prosecute, and they are frequently unresolved. The Road Accident Fund is a Defendant with a lot of money and a lot of lawsuits.
A passenger (front or back seat) in a motor vehicle involved in a collision or road accident has the right to seek compensation from the Road Accident Fund immediately.
To date, a motorist is also entitled to such compensation if the other driver or the other vehicle involved is found to be negligent.
The claims process is complicated by statutory requirements for documentation to be completed by the first treating hospital/doctor, as well as the necessity to collect multiple records from various sources.
This is a time-consuming and expensive process that Siyamthanda Buku Attorneys Incorporated handles quickly and effectively. The Road Accident Fund is the statutory insurer for all drivers operating on South African roads. To be successful, the insured driver’s or the other vehicle’s driver’s negligence must be demonstrated. This frequently necessitates the assistance of an accident reconstruction professional.
The following are the damages that might be claimed:
Past hospital and medical expenses
Medical expenses in the future – in the form of a letter of commitment;
Statutorily capped past and future earnings loss;
General damages for pain and suffering provided that the South African Medical Association Guidelines are met.
