Car accident damages as result of a traffic collision, always gives task and commonly hassles, unless one do have a compressive motor insurance cover that lives up to the promises made.

But unfortunately, that's not always the matter and if ordinary South African motorists are asked, if they believe and trust a valid claim is a guaranteed matter, one will hear a number, if not the majority of those questioned, doubting that it will be so.

Should a matter be taken to a court of law?

Most commonly the overwhelming number of disputes or claims can be solved in pre-litigation, but if no amicable solution can be found, matters sometimes need the escalation to a court of law to be solved.

It should be noted, that most of the deciders of claims, (insurance claim admins, claim evaluators or technicians, however called and other representatives, regularly do have no certified legal competences.

This means the decisions made to either accept or deny a claim are performed by persons with experience, but often not applying a legal background, taking all facts in consideration, but all too often rely on party statements, without a check on the balance of probabilities if that point of view may represent the correct situation, or act biased as to benefit schemes or other incentives, declining claims to cut down on compensation pay-outs.

Approaching a court of law give the certainty to have the case evaluated to the laws prevailing in accordance with the particular applicable situation, and after analysing the parties written arguments exchanged in the pleading phase of the trial, hearing the plaintiff and the defendant, as well as witnesses and thereafter the judicial officer will come to a decision, making it an order of court.

It is obviously clear, that such comprehensive analytic process will be by far better, than just accept an unjust decision of a person in charge, neglecting the basics of fairness to look onto a claim unbiased.

It may therefore be fairly well to accept the initial costs, coming with a legal action in a court of law, but given the evidence is supportive enough to convince the court on the basis of probabilities to decide in favour of the party, to get compensation and a refund of costs necessary to pursue the claim in court.

The RAMLA web pages are designed to supply you with valuable information's to sort out material motor car accident compensation cases occurred in a traffic collision on South African roads.

Involved in a car accident in South Africa and like to know what to do?



You will find a lot information that can help you to claim for damages or to deal with disputed motor insurance claims and even to defend you, if you face an inflated high and unreasonable claim against you.


On your way looking for a professional car accident damage assessment, to quantify and calculate your traffic accident damages occurred one of the provinces of South Africa,

Gauteng - Freestate - Northern Cape - Limpopo - North West - Mpumalanga - KwaZuluNatal (KZN) - Eastern Cape - Western Cape -


you found the RAMLA web pages giving you some ideas about the pro and cons of an independent damage investigation and what you should look on to get a reliable accident damage report, helping you to proof the material claim, against the liable party or the motor insurance company.


Even if you are located in one of the mayor cities of the country such as Cape Town - Bloemfontein - Johannesburg - Soweto - Pretoria - Polokwane - Durban - East London - Port Elizabeth - or in the wider areas around those cities or wherever in the county you are,

RAMLA (Road Accident Management & Legal Action) can support you with various service options nationwide.

Working with RAMLA will of course be the most comfortable and economic support in pursuit of a legal compensation claim, whether against a 3rd party or directed to any motor insurance company in South Africa.

Motor car accidents happen on a daily basis, and in all the South African provinces, wherever you are, in Gauteng - Freestate - Northern Cape - Limpopo - North West - Mpumalanga - KwaZuluNatal (KZN) - Eastern Cape or in the Western Cape.

In the several provinces you find differences in the level of risks, according to traffic density, conditions of the roads, day and night times, weather conditions and many more.

A motor car accident rarely does happen just out of one singular fault. Mostly more influential factors and other negligent actions must get together causing a traffic accident at all,

when driving through Cape Town or Kahilitsha, Paarl, Parow, Calvinia, Springbok, Vredenburg, as Port Elizabeth, but not just there.

In all our South African cities and even in rural areas, are risks by travelling a vehicle on public roads. Be aware that most accidents happen in your very near neighbourhood or on your daily way to or from work in your home town Middelburg, Graff-Reinet, Somerset - East or Somerset West, Grahamstown, Bisho, Zwelisha or East London, due to the facts that one who is very familiar with this routine, will not be on the alert level one should be.

You can minimise to be dragged into an auto collision, if you concentrate on the traffic, abide by the basic precautions and don't contribute negligent in driving, by let's say texting or telephoning behind the steering wheel.

But even if you live in other small towns or mayor cities such as Umlazi, Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Potchefstroom, Port Elizabeth, Knysna, Krugersdorp, Oudtshorn, Mossel Bay or Worcester you have to be aware of the danger by making your trip.

Other road users may not be up to their best abilities, be drunk for example or driving a motor car that better should not be on the road, as it is not roadworthy and so poses risks to other motorists.


Just participate in local traffic within the towns and villages as Roberson, George, Kimberly, Rustenburg or Mabopane, you can be caught up in a vehicle crash at all times, despite you may drive carefully and respect the rules of the road. The other party is always even your risk.

Minimising the probability to be caught up in a road crash, especially in bustling cities such as Pretoria, Johannesburg, Soweto, Germiston, Rustenberg, Welkom, Bloemfontein, Polokwane , Durban or Cape Town, where high volumes of motorist getting along all day, the risk to be involved in a car accident is much higher than just travelling in quieter areas as Klerksdorp or Mahikeng.

The best will be, if you are on high alert all the time you drive a motor car. Taking care of keeping proper following distances which is a very good measure not to be involved in car accidents,

when you on the roads of Kimberly, Queenstown, Beaufort West, Prieska, Upington, Vryburg, De Aar, Belfast, Bethlehem, Kroonstad , Harrysmith, Mabane, Nelspruit or Ermelo.

In huge metropolis as Johannesburg or Cape Town where you deal with rush hours when commuters get to and from work in the morning and evening hours, the danger to be trapped up in a motor car accident are explicitly higher as to other traffic times.






Claiming for damage compensation against an uninsured car driver in South Africa - can be a huge problem if they simply don't have money to pay.





car accident in South Africa


Claiming against the uninsured liable driver or responsible person will have the challenge of receiving the compensation for your motor vehicle accident damage, when you successfully claimed at all.

That means next to the typical risks in the process of fighting for car accident compensation, the risk of the liquidity of the liable one is on stake. That means for you the victim of a car accident crash to find out about the insurance status as soon as possible, best immediately at the scene of accident.

When you detect to be trapped with an uninsured, take measures to find out about his/her employment and check about the credibility and capability of payment
before you start a full legal claim.

The best advice in cases of uninsured car driver damages is to find any kind of settlement within the first phase of claiming for compensation, called the pre litigation phase.

There is quite a lot one can do to set pressure on the liable party. To the experience of RAMLA dealing with such claims against the uninsured perpetrators, the task is to get an acknowledgement of liability and hopefully an undefended legal action to achieve a warrant of execution, at least being able to execute.

This process can be best achieved by having a proper acknowledgment of liability and then serving a summons for a liquid claim, which should not be opposed by the liable party. This way is the economical favourable one if there is doubt about the ability to pay on the side of the liable party.

It can always be helpful to take the option of instalments into consideration, if the perpetrator is not able to pay for the car accident damage in a lump sum.

When the liable person is not capable to pay for the damages you have to face the additional cost of the claim and the time and effort doing so.

If there is no such insurance that cover the liable for the damage, you should find out if the liable one is the driver in due course of employment. The aim should be, to find another person to be held liable, next to the uninsured driver, to minimise the risk of non-payment.

You may check out the place of residence of the liable one, that can give you some ideas of the credibility. Further look around and talk to person's knowing the liable one to back up your information.

Examine if the car driven by the liable, but not insured party, is his/her own possession and check about the value of the car in order to have such as an item to probably attach, if the claim process ended in your favour.

You may even consider the service of a claim collector/investigator doing such check outs for you. It can be very much unsatisfactory but may be the economically advisable answer, not to claim in any case with a full legal suite against an uninsured and liable for your damage, if your examination had been resulted detecting a lack of credibility of the liable party.

RAMLA - Road Accident Management and Legal Action can help you in a relatively cheap way to do what at least must be done.

How to handle a vehicle accident damage claim for compensation, against uninsured car drivers in South Africa?

Any negligent vehicle driver, causing traffic accident damages, must pay, insured or not!

A claim against a motorist, driving without motor insurance cover and caught up and caused a traffic collision, will be relatively similar to a conventional claim against an insured car driver, liable for the accident damages.

A challenge can be, that the uninsured motorist caused the damage, will be little cooperative, once confronted with the amount of damages caused in the traffic collision, he/she is demanded to pay.

As to today's auto parts and labour prices, needed to repair accidently damaged motor cars, are not cheap at all, even smaller damages can trigger remarkable repair costs.

Even a deemed cooperative driver, confronted with the damage repair costs, may think twice, if such cost are reasonable and fair.

We do know what we do, let us take care of your struggle to be compensated fair and in full.

car accident in South Africa

There are three kinds of participants with different behaviour:

1. Those who are honest and willing to pay, and do so, even if a strong demand will be needed to get them pay.

2. Motorists without the ability to pay all, or at once, may dispute the damages and probably even liability despite knowing better, in order creating a hard time for the victim to claim.

3. Negligent car drivers, caused the impact, but don't like to face responsibility at all, may decide just not engaging in the matter, despite much effort to motivate them and don't make any efforts to entertain the matter. They don't take phone calls or react to any other form of demand, hoping that matters will pass them.

Once a demanded party/driver found them confronted, with what they don't like accepting, they look for advice and behave as above, either or other way.

The dispute of liability or not recognizing the damage calculation, will force the claimant to adduce more evidence to the claim. A defendant, knowing what is at stake, may be aware that those who alleges must proof and let the victim struggle.

Being in the need to claim motor car damages from a non-insured motorist, should not give you any more hassles as claiming from a proper insured car driver. It's mostly worth doing it and not just cut losses and accept your damages.

As a general rule, the one caused the accident by driving a vehicle negligent, without due care, not observing the traffic before and around him, don't take evasive measures and do all he could not to cause the accident, is the one who must pay.

That certainly sounds complicated, but some sort of accident scenarios are complicated to decide on full, partly or no liability.

But once the party causing the accident and seen liable on the basis of reasonable probabilities, must be demanded and must pay for damages, regardless if insured or not.

RAMLA - car accident damage claim service South Africa


The liable party must pay your damages, insured or not!

Not to be insured against motor car accident claims, does in no way mean the liable party must not pay your damages!

Everyone driving in public traffic and caused a motor accident must certainly pay what had been destructed. The absence of insurance cover does not make a difference in responsibility or liability.

If you know how to handle a claim well, you can impress the uninsured motorist quickly and demonstrate his/her situation and the consequences that may come, if they create problems.

The only problem that may equal other struggles, you might have with a reluctant insurance company, will be the question of liquidity or ability to pay for the damages, caused by the uninsured party.

But there are always methods to go forward and find solutions, such as a proper settlement agreement with instalments, or a once off pay and instalments, etc. Don't just give up as you find out the perpetrator isn't insured against motor accident damage claims, it should rather be looked on the financial stand of the culprit.

The vast majority of South African motorists are not insured against 3rd party traffic accident destruction and one must not be too worried about it, as it will certainly not mean - no insurance no pay!

Given the liable driver has problems to settle, some sort of arrangement should be found, but if the culprit is just denying, there is always the possibility suing him/her in court of law.

Such person driving without car insurance, will probably even not having much money spending on defence lawyers and therefore commonly may not object to the legal action, so a default judgement can be achieved and thereafter a warrant of execution, which will enable the claimant to execute and get items sized, such as the car or other valuable's, to be sold on auction and so getting the money to be paid for the car accident damages.

There is little difference in a claim against a not insured motorist as to the process against an insured car driver.

South African law does not require a motor car, or a motorist driving on public roads beeing insured against risks harming others, by at least a 3rd party insurance cover.

A general obligation to maintain third party motor insurance cover, before taking part on public traffic, would grant a victim of a car accident financial compensation, for motor car accident damages suffered.

It would end uncertainty in terms of the wrongdoer's financial ability for liabilities. But in the absence of such legislation, we have to take it as before mentioned.

In a compensation claim following a car crash, regardless if against an insured or uninsured car driver, the the procedure of a compensation claim, must be followed.

The process itself, demanding from a non-insured car driver, will be more or less the same than a claim against an insured motorist. The difference will just be that the claimant or victim of a car crash doesn't deal with any sort of insurance admins or broker.

That can be even good news sometimes. It can be easier to deal with a liable party, than with an insurance agent, who must follow instructions, guidelines, need approvals from management and so forth and we all know that the insurance industry like getting premiums paid much more as paying out for risks.

After the question of liability and the damages has been analysed, a solution to compensate should be found with the non-insured car driver. Certainly any motorist alleged to cause a car accident, have the right and ability to deny charges.

It is now the time determining what measurers should be taken to sort out the differences and to decide entering into a claim procedure. As any dispute, whether out of a car accident or any other matter, where external experts are needed to pursue a case, will come with some costs and before mandating someone to act for the recovery, the ratio of damage value and cost of suit should be looked on.

A decision on the way forward will always depend on the individual circumstances, if an action cannot be solved without external support.

Next to costs, the matter of proof and evidence is important and only a strong case deserves to be taken forward to all levels available. But the recovery phase before court, which includes demand and negotiation etc. is always very advisable to go through, unless the case doesn't have merits to be successful.

RAMLA is a specialised legal expert, just for those tasks and offers affordable capped fees, but provide unrestricted actions.

To say it once again in plain language, the only difference deciding to enter in a compensation claim is the financial background of the one to be sued. It will always be advisable to enter into a pre-litigation claim (before legal court actions are compelling) and not just forget about a demand at all.

A number of persons facing payment demand, and threaten to be blacklisted or facing the employment targeted, may change attitude and attempt to settle, in which ever way.

What to do, if the non-insured party don't engage and try hiding, first promise to pay or fix the car, but change course and don't do so.

It is a sad reality, that some people try to cheat, getting away from the due pay for damages, they admitted been caused by his/her negligent driving at the scene of the accident and exploit other peoples good faith, ridiculously and with little regret, turning their back on them, once back home and feel save.

While promising all at the scene, but as soon as been home save, or at least when the damage calculation is presented, backtracking in full and do nothing, perhaps even deny now all liability, not taking calls etc., making it difficult for the victim to achieve anything.

The pressure applied at the scene of the accident, admitting either in panic of looming problems, or facing police and may found been drunk and arrested or fearing any other problems had been faded, may trigger the turn arround.



It may even be worse, if the culprit behave so, because it had proved to be successful before, just acknowledge at the scene and take advantage of the good faith of another and thereafter turn around, making it as difficult as possible, in order getting away with it, or at least making it highly problematic for the other, sitting with damages and waiting for a pay or at least acceptance.

Not engaging in the matter is a partly proven and somehow successful behaviour, in order to sit out the matter and let the claimant struggle.

On top of that, the fact the culprit is as cooperative at the scene and promise whatever is in question to do, possibly already tell the other to just submit some quotes, and there we go paying, makes the victim looking for a quick solution, rather too easy to forget taking the necessary care, to gather and verify all the details, needed if the promise won't be honoured.



Well such cases of reluctant behaviour must be met with decisive and strong action, making the wrongdoer aware of possible consequences.

Despite such bad behaviour, there are some methods to put the relevant pressure on the culprit. RAMLA - Road Accident Management & Legal Action - had applied such pressure on to such reluctant persons with in the past, and well not always, but in a good number of cases, got the culprit confronted and engaged.

Facing some different telephone numbers, not blocked in the culprits phone, and professional demand, lead perpetrator's think twice and rather engage, before taking the risk that matters will be escalated to a court of law, with all the additional costs and hassles, to bear for them.

Taking matters to court, even to a small claims court, inform the credit bureau for blacklisting, or threaten to approach the employer for assistance, are some measures that can help to change minds and clarify the severity of the matter and consequences.

Should all not help, those treats should become reality by doing so.

Those liable drivers, hiding or try not revealing the residential or personal details in full or in truth, can be chased by Police, as the national traffic act provides for the duty to identify.

Non engagement is difficult to handle, if the tools to apply and the expirience aren't available for a motorist or layman in such unappetitly cases, and if the reclutant culprit eventually choose to do and behave as bad and if there isn't any chance to get the other involved and engage or fulfil promised duties, the only way is to sue in a court of law.

Contact RAMLA for support to get the reluctant motorist pay the damages.

If and when should a case against a liable car driver be taken to a court of law?

Before legal actions in a court of law should be initiated, all avenues to settle the disputed issue in pre-litigation (before a court of law is the last opportunity) should have been evaluated and pursuit to the possible best. Only if all failed the way to a court of law is the option.

It must be accepted that in pre-litigation, no party, insurance, attorney or any other legal representative can be forced to accept another person's demand, for which ever claim. Only the courts do have the compelling power to force engagement, analyse, judge and eventually provide title to execute.

Achieving a settlement out of court will be crucial and beneficial, especially if the claim must be directed to a motorist of which the financial background isn't as well known.

Uninsured car drivers in South Africa, may not always be financially as well off, so that costs for legal procedures in a compensation claim against a non-insured car driver, should be minimised where ever possible, unless the financial state is found positiv.

Certainly this does not mean that the liable party, not having any motor insurance cover, can escape without paying for the damages to other people's motor car.

If no mutual agreement to settle and pay compensation, for motor car damages, could be reached out of court, and it's worthwhile to continue with the matter in a court of law to achieve a positive judgement, that allow for final execution.

It the way to go, as courts in South Africa are independent and taking the matter of justice serious. Regular matters will be heard in the Magistrate Courts and issues with high values, needs to be addressed with the High Courts.

For smaller values, up to R 15 000, as is to the time of publishing, matters can be addressed and issued with the small claims courts, which acts quick and doesn't cost much as no legal representation for either party is allowed. No representation, no such costs.

RAMLA - Road Accident Management and Legal Action - is one of South Africa's most experienced and decisive advocates to sort out legal disputes with parties, Insurance companies or act in defence of clients confronted with unreasonable or inflated claims.

Car accident issues that matters most:





We are legal specialist in motor car accident damage recovery matters and offer our services to those suffering damages or in need to defend unreasonable or inflated claims.

Taking on disputes with motor insurance companies, engage in unfair declines or incorrect apportionment of damages, take matter on review to the Ombudsman, or even get matters to be heard in a court of law, should all fail to find a solution and the escalation to a court of law is inevitable.

RAMLA can get you through the trouble, for just some affordable fees, commonly just equal or lower then towing/storage cost may be.

We are one of the most experienced, decisive advocates, when it comes to car accident problems - issues of compensation or defence against unreasonable or inflated claims, bad repair practice and much more.

We work only on motor car accident matters.

Check us out, so you do know if we can uphold we say, free of charge.

Welcome to RAMLA

Road Accicent Management & Legal Action - South Africa








 

How going forward once there is a claim or dispute or other challenges?

Well, once someone checks a web site as this one RAMLA presents, there will be some sort of a problem.

Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) issues are manifold and can be complex.

It may either be that there is no response from the liable party's Insurer or a repudiation, apportioning or any other decline, such as to violation of terms and conditions.

There are even cases, where a claim is directed to a 3rd party, deemed liable and demanded, but no engagement noticed.

Lot of issues coming up in MVA - car accident matters, may not be handled according to valid law, or wrongly interpreted.

There are many people in South Africa's motor insurance industry, without a legal background and act under instructions, don't care, nor perhaps not having the necessary skills, or just follow a strategy, to get rid of valid claims.

Such should not be accepted and the challenge taken head on, even if it comes with some engagement.

RAMLA as a specialised legal expert can solve such problems, just for a fraction in fees what you may miss out, if you don't have the right support.

In our view, it is not the correct way and get a legitimate claimant's demand, just been brushed away, isn't it?

Just take the time and contact, tell us about the matter and let us take care of it.





 

Defence against unreasonable or inflated claims?

RAMLA can help you most effectively to get a claim dropped or eased.

The results defending someone against whatever car accident compensation claim, can be very good, as often the evidence the Claimant do have is not sufficient to proof the claim, which is a pre-requisite for a successful action.

If it isn't as clear what the implications are and what evidence the other party/Insurance do have, chances are very good to stand through and get a claim successfully denied, even if a summons may have be served already.

The party alleges or accuses is forced to proof the claim and not the demanded party.

Many Insurance recovery claims fall short of such reliable evidence and therefore can be repudiated, even if it comes from attorneys or recovery agents.









 

However we do handle every substantial MVA claim,

against whatever party, Insurance, reluctant party or company successfully, given the merits of the issue are clear and stand a challenge.

Should the merits not be so favourable in the first place, we do all we can, improving such merits, to get the matter being a strong case.









 

Chances of success, if there is a strong case, and any other winning guarantees?

Those are questions we hear frequently, before a new client is prepared to accept some fees.

There cannot be any guarantee of success in legal matters, as the other party may have evidence matching or being better proof. If it comes to an action in a court of law, the presiding officer is the instance of weighting all brought forward in the action and decides.

However if sufficient evidence is at hand, chances are high to predict a win and succeeding with a matter, which ends up in an acceptable settlement/judgement.









 

You want to visit a local RAMLA office in your area and have a chat with one of our experts?

We are very sorry telling you, that we have chosen a different way of performing our business.

In order to hold overhead costs low, and not compromise on expertise and service, we have decided to act from one central, but not public office, in the Western Cape.

In order to hold fees low and offer very competitive rates, compared with similar legal services, we decided to concentrate intelligence and contain costs in this manner.

Anyone who likes to visit his/her adviser or attorney, should not choose RAMLA as a favourite, as we cannot or want honour just that.

But we can deliver the way we operate effectively, wherever you are in South Africa and with whom ever we have to deal, effectively, decisive and affordable.









 

What about fees, must they be paid upfront or can it be deducted from recoveries?

Let me answer the question in short.

Yes, all fees need to be paid up before we take action.

Why is that so?

Our fees are as competitive low, that we cannot enforce any such fees economically, if someone just take our services and thereafter give us hassles to pay.

Any local attorney will do the same, as asking for a deposit, commonly far higher than our entire fees are, upfront.

In general those deposits are offset against fee notes and further deposits requested in due course.

We dont do that. We deliver services not billed on time issues, but on performance phases, which gives cost certainty and the assurance to be taken care of the full matter.

Contact us to get more detailed information.









 

Any doubts about our capabilities or performance as this offer is an anonymous one on the web?

Well I must accept such doubts and can only point out and rely on the many we served before and who may be contactable for reference.

Check out what we display on our comprehensive web pages, which will back up our knowledge and experience without a doubt.

Anyhow we will never accept a mandate before we have had a first free analyse of your particular matter and if you aren't satisfied with our reply, simply don't go on with us, despite it may be detrimental to you.

We value a fair and open informative strategy, keeping a client updated, which will please most of those with an open mind to comunication technologies, such as email etc.

But we can only do what we offer and if you aren't happy with such offer, just get into contact with your local lawyer, or ask us to refer you to someone with specialised knowledge in MVA matters.









 

Should you have been through all before . . .

and still think we can be the one to solve your motor vehicle accident compensation problem in South Africa, just get in contact with us.

You're welcome to be served perfectly.

Kind Regards Your RAMLA team
