Specialist in Road Accident Fund Claims

 

In short, the Road Accident Fund is a legal entity established in terms of the Road Accident Fund Act to provide compensation to victims of road accidents involving the negligent driving of a motor vehicle.

The Road Accident Fund in effect takes the place of the wrongdoer (negligent driver) when it comes to compensating victims of road accidents and, because of this, a victim cannot sue the negligent driver personally for loss or damages.
