Third Party Accident Claims from the RAF

Being involved in an accident can be stressful and frustrating, especially if it is the fault of third party. Understanding third party accidents can be confusing. Plainly put, if you are involved in an accident as a result of a third party, you can actually take action against the guilty party. For example, should you drive into another vehicle as a result of another vehicle cutting you off suddenly in traffic, you can take action against the driver who cut you off (the third party).

The Road Accident Fund is a national initiative that has been set up to compensate accident victims who are involved in a third party accident. The funds used for these payouts are as a result of a levy that is charged on all petrol purchased in the country. In order to process a third party accident claim you will need proof that it is in fact the fault of the third party. When an accident occurs make sure to take down the contact details of any witnesses. Report the accident to the authorities and do not move the vehicles until their positions have been marked or photographs have been taken.

Once the reporting has been done, you can seek assistance from professionals for processing your claim against the Road Accident Fund. Unfortunately the Road Accident Fund is quite a difficult fund to claim from. All claimants require various reports and documentation along with some sort of legal representation. By being a member of Road Cover through African Independent Brokers you can expect the entire process to be a simple one. These experts will ensure that the entire claims process is handled for you and without it costing you an arm and a leg.
