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.

car accident in South Africa






















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.

If you have been unlucky dragged into an auto accident caused by another one or more motorist who drove negligent, not abiding the rules of the road or even careless and subsequent suffered material damages to your motor car, you want that the liable party pay compensation you for losses.






What is and means vicarious liability in claim for your motor vehicle accident damages?

Vicarious liability is a liability imposed by law upon an innocent other, for the acts of a wrongdoer.

car accident in South Africa
By employing or even instructing someone to act, in this matter driving a motor car, thereby entrust the driver with the control of a potential dangerous vehicle (the motor car) that can create a risk to harm others, in performing for his (the employers) own purposes and in his instruction, the vehicle owner will be vicariously liable for the drivers negligence.

Claim against the car owner of the motor vehicle involved in the traffic accident. RSA

Given the motorist caused the car accident is not the owner of the vehicle, it will often be attempted to add the owner of the car into the claim action, as another respondent.

Motor car owners do have certain responsibilities regarding the maintenance and roadworthiness of the vehicle, as well for some negligent actions of a driver, who used the owner's motor car, with permission, even for a private, unremunerated driver and more pivotal, if the driver is using the vehicle on instructions or in fulfilling of orders, given by the car owner.

A motor car owner (private or business) will have even more liabilities; if the driver will be remunerated for a job (private or business) or get any other benefits, even if not material once, if he/she needs the owner's vehicle to fulfil and abides to instructions or other favours, given or made to the owner, in or by the course of the drive.

Furthermore personal liability can exist, if a motor car owner is a passenger in the motor car, as the driver caused an accident, throughout negligent driving.

Prerequisites creating extended liability (vicarious liability) for actions of a motor car driver, utilising another's vehicle, must have the owner's permission for the use of the car are:

Permission to use the motor vehicle of another, comes with duties for the owner, when taken benefits that will be rendered to the car owner, for utilising the car.

Contractual relationships and paid or unremunerated utilisation for gains or benefits, to the motor car owner, will be the criteria, if vicarious liability may apply.

Such benefits must not be seen just in monetary means, social or private benefits will be recognised too, in the process of holding a motor car owner vicariously liable, next to the negligent car driver.

The quintessence of the complex and difficult questions creating vicarious liability, (liability imposed on an innocent other) will be, that a special relationship between the car owner and the car driver been created, whereas many factors play a part in the definition.

The very first to look on, does the motorist driven the car and caused an accident indeed have had permissions or authorisation, driving the motor vehicle or have been driven under instructions from the vehicle owner.

A motor car owner, who has not authorised the car driver and not gave his permission or endorsement cannot held being liable for any negligent action or destruction, emanating from activities of the unauthorised motorist.

Determining the possibility holding the car owner vicariously liable, another factor will be the purpose for the drive and/or relations to the vehicles owner's requests or instructions, once he gave such permission to drive his/her motor car.

Finding out about the true circumstances of the drivers authorisation and purposes is the challenge. Parties involved in a motor car crash and suffer damage, can easily miss out detecting such circumstances and take appropriate measures to secure such evidence, right at the place of accident, simply due to the stressing nervous situation.

Once a car owner can be held liable, several or jointly, it will be to the benefit of a victim in the motor crash, as the negligent driver will not be insured and sometimes financially not stable enough paying for the damages. Having a car owner liable, next to the driver, minimise the risk of financial shortfall.

In a claim against the car owner, who did not drive or been a passenger in the vehicle to the time of the car accident, it is important to find out what was the reason for liable driver to be on the road,   in South Africa



Car Owners duty maintaining the vehicle roadworthy

It is the sole responsibility of the motor car owner, having the car maintained and functioning in a roadworthy condition, before the vehicle can take part in public traffic.

It cannot be relied on the initial roadworthy test, before the car registration. A vehicle must be roadworthy all the time, before taking part in South African traffic.

A driver, not the owner of the motor vehicle, should make an inspection of critical functions, as lights, breaks, tyres etc. before taking the car onto the road. Unfortunately this is not given the attention as it should be, to the safety off all.

If a traffic accident will be caused, not just by negligent driving, but by reasons of technical faults, the car owner always faces liability, even if he had not driven the vehicle, but allowed another to do so.

A vehicle owner can only be discharged from liability for an accident, a driver using the vehicle caused, which cause is deriving from poor technical standard and therefore the vehicle been regarded as not-roadworthy, once he/she can proof, the motor car has taken to the road, without his consent.

Car owners liability for negligent remunerated (paid) driver

Motorists taking part in public traffic and get a salary, pay or other forms of remuneration, for driving the motor car, it must be suspected that the reason for driving will be in performing for the owner or acting under instructions of the motor car owner.

This simply means the car driver is in charge or performs for the vehicle owner and gets a pay for the service or work as an employee.

Such situation creates the possibility the car owner being vicariously liable, for actions performed in his order or derives from a contract, and can be held jointly and several liable for any negligent driving which lead to a car accident and damage, or other acts that caused harm to others, caused by the car driver and not by the car owner himself.

In a case of vicarious liability, the motor car owner is liable not because of his/her own negligence, but because of the special relationship between the car owner and the car driver.

Both the driver and the owner can be sued for compensation, emanating from acts of negligent behaviour in public spaces, caused by the driver on duty and create damage to property of others.

Once a remuneration or pay, in which form ever, can be proven, the car owner cannot easily claim not have authorised or allowed the car driver utilising the car, or deny that the vehicle driver has acted on his request.

Remember, a vehicle owner can only get away from such form of liability for a remunerated driver, if he can proof the car driver not been on duty for him/her, or the motor car has not been taken legally, without his/her consent, or utilised for private or other purposes, for the driver himself and not within the business relationship between the car owner and driver.

Disputes can arise, if the driver, generally on duty for the employer, takes routes that aren't appropriate or fetch people in between, going shopping or the like.

Negligent unremunerated driver and liability of car owners

In a case, confronted with a negligent driven car by another, that did cause a traffic collision and the driver not being the vehicle owner and even not remunerated, or getting a pay or other benefits, from the motor car owner, for any services rendered in the cause or for the purpose of the driving, but utilising the supplied motor car to fulfil an order or obligations, taken from the car owner, or make available to him other benefits, can even lead to a liability of the vehicle owner, to pay for damages caused from another driver, but not he himself drove the car.

However, confronted with this type of situation, it will be much more difficult to establish such vicarious liability as it will be in terms of an employed driver on duty.

The two different aspects to look on here are:

Have the car owner been a passenger in the car during the drive that causes the traffic accident or wasn't he in the vehicle at that time the negligent driving led to a car accident.

If the car owner hasn't been passenger during the drive leading to the impact, there is little or no chance to have him accept any liability for such accident.

However if the owner been a passenger to that time, he have had a duty to control the driver and prevent negligent driving throughout engaging and demanding the driver to drive reasonable careful or stop the vehicle to replace him from the driver's seat.

It the car owner missed out in such regard to control negligent driving and get the driver to careful control the vehicle, he may be found vicariously liable and be responsible next to the driver.

The car owner as passenger in the vehicle and the possibility of liability for damages the negligent driver causes.

A situation that a vehicle owner takes the passenger seat and not gets behind the steering wheel is not an infrequent one.

Once the car owner is a passenger, the question of the rightful and consented use or driving of the motor car by another, must be seen as factually proven. There will be little or no room for the argument, the driver has taken the motor car without consent of the car owner.

A vehicle owner has the right and an obligation to control the way his motor car will be driven.

Especially if the car owner is a passenger in the vehicle during the motor accident, caused by negligent driver being his chauffeur, he had the right and the obligation to interfere and stop the driver being negligent.

The motor car owner cannot just be held liable for damages caused by negligence; on the basis that the vehicle owner has attributed to the possibility of a car accident (i.e. celebratory atmosphere in the car), as to the failure the owner passenger hasn't exercised proper control over the vehicle and its driver.

But an owner passenger can be held personally liable, once harm to others will be foreseeable, resulting from the manner the motor car is driven and failed exercising his rights controlling the way the car is driven.

If the car owner on the passenger seat, could or should have been aware of negligent driving, such as speeding or intoxication or factors that interferes into the car drivers abilities of safe driving, and then has not exercises proper control and permitting the another continue driving the way that can harm others, will be liable for compensation of such harm.

One of the critical points are, that the vehicle must have been driven by another, for the car owners benefit or service and not just for the own purposes of the driver himself.

Car Owners legal responsibility if found vicariously liable for negligent drivers utilising his motor car, with his/her permisson to drive

Once vicarious liability is established, deriving from a car driver utilising a car of another and driving negligently, causing a motor accident, the car owner will be seen mutual and severally liable together with the car driver.

Consequences of such liability will be that the claimant or victim of the traffic collision can - after successful pursuing the action - ask the car owner to pay for all the damages, instead of just having to bet on the driver.

A driver of a car belonging to another, will regularly doesn't have any valid insurance cover, where the car owner may have such cover, which will therefore be party of securing the payment.

Most commonly vicariously liable car owners are businesses, which are employers and the employees driving company vehicles, in the duty of the business. Having a private owner vicariously liable is rather the exemption as the norm.

Those businesses mentioned above are not those parties in a claim, most welcome to deal with. On the contrary, they are one of the difficulty's categories in a claim for motor car accident damage compensation. As having company vehicles on the road almost every day, the chances and risks being involved in a traffic accident are potentially higher as those of private car drivers.

Once more frequently confronted with such compensation actions and the need to remain a suitable risk for motor insurance companies not to revoke cover or increase premiums to a very high level, those companies try what they can, often in collaboration with insurers, to brush claims off the table.

Various methods are common, which starts from just ignoring a private demand, to deny liability for the driver, play "good cop - bad cop" with the Insurer towards the claimant and finally a possible deny or severe downscaling by the Insurer may be the result.

It will take a good portion of knowledge and persistence to get along with a claim against such parties, successfully.

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
