Handling Road Accidents in South Africa

In December 2009 South African roads experienced over 900 vehicle accidents in which over 1100 people tragically lost their lives. While current road works, potholes and general lack of maintenance may be the cause of some of these accidents, it is often negligence that plays a large role. Road accidents occur mainly as a result of the driver breaking the road rules, driving under the influence of alcohol, driving with worn shocks and brakes and speeding. While safety warnings and features are set in place, avoiding accidents on our roads is not always possible.

If you are involved in any road accidents where injury and damage is sustained as a result of a third party’s negligence, then you are entitled to seek compensation from the Road Accident Fund. This particular fund is one that is set in place on a national basis to compensate accident victims. Funds are raised by a levy which is charged on all petrol bought and sold in the country. Unfortunately it has become quite difficult to claim from this fund. The procedure can often be confusing and quite complex. With the help of African Independent Brokers and their Road Cover you can be assisted with the entire process. The experts will assist you with defining the merit of your case, gathering all the right documentation and submitting it correctly to the Road Accident Fund (RAF).

In order to process a claim against the Road Accident Fund you may need to obtain medico-legal reports and have legal representation. With Road Cover in place you can expect all of this to be professionally and effectively handled for you.

If you would like to make sure that you are fully prepared should you be involved in any road accidents then take the time to contact African Independent and discuss their Road Cover package with them today.
