Not every legal matter requires the use of an attorney. Fighting a speeding ticket and going to small claims courts are two examples. However, in many other situations involving a legal dispute, challenge, or life event, you may not wish to chance the risks of doing it alone without the advice of an experienced lawyer who can help you out. In fact, while good legal representation may not be cheap, it can help get you out of a number of stressful situations.
The top five most stressful life events – in no particular order – include:
- Major illness or injury
- Job loss
- Death of a loved one

ROAD ACCIDENT FUND
All users of South African roads are eligible for social insurance, should they be in an accident. This includes passengers in a vehicle, pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and those not involved in the road accident but who are severely affected (such as a minor child or remaining spouse). You are able to claim against injuries sustained or death arising from an accident on the road. It is administrated by the South African government and claimed funds are taken from the fuel levy. Claims can be instituted for medical expenses, loss of earnings, loss of support, and general damages for pain and suffering. This includes emotional shock and disfigurement, but only for serious injuries. Claiming from the Road Accident Fund (RAF) can be a complicated matter. It involves completing legal forms, obtaining medical reports, lodging an affidavit, getting witness information, and other administrative requirements. If these aren’t submitted without error, the claim may be rejected. That is why it is imperative that you have a lawyer handle the process for you.
