The starting point of any third-party claim is the lodgement of the Form 1 claim form with the Road Accident Fund (the RAF). This constitutes notice to the RAF that a claimant is claiming compensation for personal injuries sustained by himself or another in a motor vehicle collision. The giving of this notice is a statutory requirement in terms of the Road Accident Fund Act 56 of 1996 (the Act). The procedure is set out in s 24. The basic requirement is that the claimant has to complete the claim form, which includes the medical report.
