Consequences of the Draft Bill being passed

What south africans stand to lose

Loss of earnings

Currently, when someone makes a claim for lost income, they get all the money at once. But with the new system, they will receive smaller payments over time until they reach the same amount. The amount of money they get will be checked regularly to make sure it's still fair. If the person dies before they get all the payments, their family won't get any more money.

Exclusion from compensation

The Draft Road Accident Fund Amendment Bill covers accidents that happen on public roads, but not those that happen on private property or hit-and-runs. It also doesn't cover accidents caused by drivers who were over the legal alcohol limit or passengers of drunk drivers. The bill also does not cover accidents caused by faulty products, injuries that happen during filming or cover passengers who have limited insurance.

Medical expenses

The suggested changes would stop paying for medical costs already covered by insurance or medical aid. This might lead to more expensive premiums for all members. Additionally, non-South African citizens would not be compensated, and the RAF would require pre-approval for all upcoming medical claims, which is different from the current process.

Claims against the
at-fault party

The new rules make it harder for accident victims to get compensation. And do not allow innocent victims to sue the person who caused the accident for any damages not covered from the RAF.

Pain and suffering

People making claims will not be able to claim for pain, suffering, disfigurement and shock because this category of damage will be removed completely.
