Gert Nel Attorneys - We will fight for your rights

Submitting a claim to the RAF is a complex process and can take up to 18 months to reach a resolution. Consulting an experienced attorney will go a long way to expediting the process and increase the likelihood of successful road accident compensation.

The RAF will only compensate you for medical and financial damages. It does not cover material damage, such as your car, which you will have to claim from your insurance.

Get your documents ready

Gert Nel Attorneys will assist you in collecting the right documents to prove and complete your motor vehicle accident claim. In most cases, this will require medical reports of your injuries, financial proof of earnings lost, medical bills, photographic evidence of the accident site and the resultant damages, and an official description of the accident.

If you were somehow complicit in your own accident, e.g. talking on your cell phone or texting, this negligence will reduce the value of your compensation. Once your third-party claim has been lodged with the RAF, an investigation will be launched.
