Damages and Compensation
We perform actuarial calculations for a wide range of legal matters that can stem from causes such as motor vehicle accidents (MVA's), train or aeroplane accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful dismissal, maintenance, divorce settlements or commercial matters. In particular, we specialise in actuarial reports for third party claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF).
The focus is on providing an expert, reliable service with a personal touch.
