The Road Accident Fund (RAF) is a government-supported insurance fund that provides compensation to the victims of road accidents in South Africa. Every time you purchase petrol or diesel, you automatically contribute to a statutorily prescribed levy, which is used to finance the fund.
The RAF provides personal injury and death compensation to those injured in motor vehicle accidents, provided the accidents weren’t caused by the person claiming. The person responsible for the accident is also, in terms of the RAF legislation, indemnified against any claims for compensation for bodily injury (except for so-called “emotional” claims).
