Hi there.

If you were in an accident involving a motor vehicle on a public road, then you can claim from the RAF. I would, however, recommend that you use the services of a specialised personal injury attorney. You can get information from www.lawyers.co.za or from your nearest law society. These types of attorneys normally fight your case for free and only gets paid if you are successful with your claim against the RAF. So I suggest that he find a specialised RAF attorney to verify if he has a case. It should not cost him anything.
