Mabhena, Mr TB to ask the Minister of Transport
(a)Whether the Road Accident Fund has introduced a policy to no longer make use of the services of private lawyers to investigate and settle claims; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?
Yes, the Road Accident Fund has put forth such a policy for implementation. There is a court ruling which has went against the RAF, extending the panel of attorneys’ service level agreement by a further six months. The matter is now sub judice, because this ruling is being appealed by the Minister and the RAF
