Medical Negligence & Road Accident Fund Claims

    Medical Negligence Claims
Claims for medical negligence arise when improper care is provided by a medical practitioner or hospital, which is substandard and leads to ill health as a result of poor treatment, botched surgeries, birth complications which should have been prevented, or even death.

Claims you may be entitled to include a monetary award for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of amenities of life
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Loss of support

As with Road Accident Fund claims, personal injury claims may be dealt with on a Contingency Fee basis.

     Road Accident Claims
As with Road Accident Fund claims, some personal injury claims may be dealt with on a Contingency Fee basis.

The Road Accident Fund (“RAF”) is a body established by an Act of Parliament, namely, the Road Accident Fund Act.

The Road Accident Fund provides compulsory cover to all users of South African roads (by way of fuel tax), resident or foreigner, against injuries sustained or death arising from accidents involving motor vehicles within the borders of South Africa. This cover is in the form of indemnity insurance to persons who cause the accident, as well as personal injury and death insurance to victims of motor vehicle accidents and their families.

The compensation provided by the Road Accident Fund is an attempt to re-integrate victims of road accidents into society from a health and economic perspective and to protect wrongdoers and their families from financial ruin. This is done by paying the medical and related services costs required to restore accident victims to health, compensating the victims or their families for income or support lost as a result of the accident and indemnifying the wrongdoer from liability. In addition, the Road Accident Fund pays general damages to accident victims, which represents compensation for pain and suffering, loss of amenities of life, disability and disfigurement, as well as funeral costs to families in circumstances where the victim of the accident sustains fatal injuries.

We are able to provide assistance to individuals needing to obtain payment of compensation from the Road Accident Fund for loss or damage caused by the wrongful and negligent driving of a road user. Our services include assisting clients on a Contingency Fee basis (No Win – No Fee basis), in the event that they meet certain criteria, as determined by ourselves.

Services in this area of law include: –

  • Consultation and Appointment as Attorneys of Record
  • Obtaining relevant Legal Documentation
  • Lodgement of Claim with Road Accident Fund
  • Obtaining Expert Evidence
  • Negotiations with Road Accident Fund on Settlement
  • Proceeding to trial in the event of no settlement being reached

Municipal Law & Tender Disputes
We have assisted various clients in actions and applications against the local municipality, whether it be for removal of title deed restrictions, or applications against the municipality for unlawful administrative action.

We have even successfully defended and prevented the demolition of a client’s home by the municipality.

We can also assist with PAIA Applications (Promotion of Access to Information Act) against the municipality, should you be entitled to certain information held by the Buffalo City Metro, which they fail to disclose or furnish.
