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.

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.

Intoxication and implications while driving a motor vehicle on South African (RSA) roads and possible denials for compensation without proper factual evidence, such as breathalyser or blood tests



Drunk or intoxicated vehicle driver, in public traffic and the possible consequences



Driving under the influence of Alcohol or other Intoxication sources aren't appreciated and indeed come with danger, for own and others harm and hamper the ability to drive.

Not all allegation of driving under the influence are always correct and just too often insured drivers are wrongly accused driven under the influence, without factual evidence, but the insurance cover denied

However driving under any influences isn't as amicable, if indeed true.

Only proven drunk driving can have consequences or more particularly be a reason for declining valid motor insurance cover. A proper decline for drunk driving will need hard evidence to be a valid decline reason.

In all regularity, if a motor accident occur under the influence of alcohol or other intoxication, and there will be hard evidence, such as Police or Medics undertake legal testing from persons be deemed intoxicated of which the results are positive, such driver will be arrested and later be charged under criminal law in court.

Should the court find the evidence sufficient and positive, a judgement will follow, which can serve a civil case for compensation, as proof of negligence.

In the absence of such results, the proof of intoxication will be difficult and no criminal charges will be given and therefore there will be no consequences following the allegation of drunk driving.

As we experience in many cases, motor insurance companies, or even private persons, rely on allegations from other persons, Para Medics, witness or Investigative interviews and late night car accident times, to listen to those bystander opinion and allege intoxication of driving under the influence of alcohol, to take such as a basis to decline a claim.

That isn't proper and not acceptable and need strong defensive actions.

However a car driver who is indeed tested positively for intoxication, whatever kind, will find him/her in trouble relying on any insurance cover, which will certainly be declined, based on breach the law and of contract by violation of terms.

Such proven intoxicated driver will face paying any damages caused by the car accident under intoxication, out of own funds.

A vehicle driver, take part in public traffic, but drunk or intoxicated, involved in a car accident

As all vehicle drivers do know, driving under any forbidden influences is violating the law, which may or will have consequences in terms of liability, if an accident occur and damages caused.

We don't want elaborating as much on those liabilities that comes when caught up driving under the influence of substances. It is common knowledge that it isn't permissible and not just a "cavaliers" delict.

Severe consequences as arrest, trial and punishment will automatically take place once found guilty to have been driving intoxicated over the allowed level, causing and accident or even just caught up in a police control action.

The legal level of alcohol concentration in a person's blood is about 0.5/000. The question if and when such level will be reached, depend on time consuming the alcohol and the body condition of the particular person, but it is reached far earlier as one may be thinking. Just two beers may be good enough to fall through.

A person in the range of the legal level won't feel intoxicated at all, and that is why such level is accepted for legal driving.

Another possibility of being intoxicated unaware of, can be caused by medicine. But we concentrate on the far outmost issue, alcohol above the legal level.

The procedure of been alleged of drunk driving often starts, if some smell of alcohol is detected, or typical signs of intoxicating noted.

It may be a paramedic helping a lightly insured may smell alcohol, but even sometimes bystanders are making allegations in that regard. It must be noted, that such allegations aren't credible and that reliable intoxication levels can only be detected and shown by appropriate testing.

Appropriate testing levels/methods are the breathalyser test, a method where the tested person breath is pressed into a breathalyser device that thereafter shows results. However such result isn't good enough, if the level shown just be near over the legal limit, as those devices aren't as accurate as blood tests.

A blood test concluding results are reliable and will reveal not only alcohol but even other intoxication and the level within the blood concentration.

Only a proper performed blood test, done by relevant laboratories is reliable proof and wherever such results are positive, there is little or nothing that can excuse a so tested person and thereafter the law will take its course.

Being tested positively will not only have criminal offence character, it will even have implication to civil liabilities, if damages are caused, due to intoxication. Any drunk driving will be an offence and clear evidence of negligence or even recklessness, and will lapse all valid insurance covers.

A negligent vehicle driver will therefore be held liable for all damages to all parties and commonly face paying any such damages out of own funds.

However it must be noted, that only proven intoxication, by methods mentioned, will be proof of negligence. No negligence or proof of intoxication can be derived by any other methods and any allegations from bystanders or other involved persons testify, cannot stand a challenge.

Even bottles or cans containing alcoholic substances, found in a particular car, aren't proof. However it will certainly be an indicator that should trigger the tests.

Given a party in a car accident suspect another of intoxication, should insist that proper testing will be done, not risking to be left alone, once the time period lapsed where intoxication can be proven.

A party trying avoiding such testing, applying to the goodwill of another or even promise to pay for all damages, should not be trusted, as long not a full written confession is made, signed and best backed up by a witness signing up.

It is not uncommon, that a good willing person try to help the wrongdoer, will face a change of mind and promises made are not honoured at all, or even be confronted with lies and fabricated stories in a later stage. There is nothing to proof intoxication in an appropriate manner, once missed out to do so to the right time.

A person been tested positively for drunk driving or intoxication will be liable for all damages related to a car accident under the influence or intoxication.

The positive tested vehicle driver in public traffic will be per see negligent. The law of delict, applicable in South Africa to deal with damages caused by another, without other legal affiliation, stipulate that a driver been found negligent, will be liable damages caused to others.

There will be little escape from paying damages, if drunk driving is proven. Any defence will fail.

In case of proven drunk driving, of which proof isn't granted just, if the person suspected intoxicated been arrested. A proper blood test will be needed to proof, which is sometimes missed out to do so properly in South Africa, even if a person had been arrested, following a traffic collision.

It will be of good care safeguarding own interest, that the party harmed insist a blood test must be performed and documented, not to risk been cheated after release of the suspected intoxicated driver from arrest.

Proven drunk driving will have implications to indemnification by insurance cover, as drunk driving is a breach of terms & conditions of the insurance contract. As soon as an Insurer will be aware that the insured be intoxicated, any cover will be revoked and perhaps the policy cancelled.

That means, a party claiming for compensation, hoping the other parties Insurance will cover the damages, may be disappointed to hear the cover is revoked.

The perpetrator must then be held liable in his/her own capacity directly and the challenge will be, if the liable driver does have sufficient financial means to cover the damages caused, out of own pockets.

Should the liable driver, don't accept the claim, by whatever reason, a full compensation action needs to be launched.

However, should there be proof of intoxication; it will help a lot as the merits in the matter will be established by relying on any such proof.

When you need support to claim professional and very economically RAMLA may be the best choice

What needs to be proven in order to accuse intoxicated driving

As mentioned above, only a proper performed blood test will be proof of negligence. Any other allegations, made by unqualified persons, may be an indication, but by far no proof. Often motor insurance companies launch "Investigations" with questionable resources and claims be declined on unsubstantial proof.

There are certainly other indicators of intoxication, such as smell for alcohol, uncontrolled personal behaviour, speech irritation and certainly breathalyser tests.

However all those indicators aren't valid legal proofs. The breathalyser test comes second to a blood test, but still not always accepted in our courts for a proper proof, if attacked.

Breathalyser devices must be operated by trained and authorised persons, applied correctly and only then there will be some sort of proof, i.e. should the breathalyser test show very high intoxication rates, as high that any failure tolerances will not be essential to even come near the legal limit, if indeed be inaccurate.

Any other methods of sustaining proof of intoxication must be denied legality.



Testing for Alcohol by Breathalyser, what are the requirements

The breathalyser device must be up to standard and properly maintained, operated by a trained and authorised person in the applicable manner.

1. The device must be free of any technical problems.

2. The person doing the testing, must be authorised and trained

3. It must be tested in the appropriate manner

4. The results must be documented

5. The person tested must cooperate and breathing as requested

6. Breathalyser do have known and accepted failure tolerances

All such requirements are to be met, to have a valid indication.

A person asked for a breathalyser test, may deny doing the test, but must accept a subsequent ordered blood test, prescribed in South African legislation.



Testing for Intoxication by Blood Test for any substances

A blood test to find any forbidden substances within the blood, when driving a vehicle in public traffic, is the proper way proving intoxication, regardless of alcohol, drugs or medicine.

The blood extraction must be done in a safe and proper medical manner, performed by a trained and authorised person, most commonly a medical doctor.

Normally the test will be done within the police station where the testing medical personal will be called in.

A person subject to blood testing, if some suspicion will be reasonably be that intoxication will be possible, cannot deny the test. Such person accused or suspected to be intoxicated must comply, and can be forced to do so.

The blood extracted must then be labelled, who is the tested person, when the test be done, who did the testing and where the test be done.

That labelled sample will then be send to a medical laboratory for analysing. The laboratory will do the test and provide the analyses in a report, which further serves as evidence.

In today's South Africa, test results still take a time to be provided.

Positive testing, meaning the existence of forbidden substances and its concentration to blood ratio, will be found in the report, and therefore taken as factual evidence.

The blood test needs to be done in a certain space of time from intoxicating, as the human body absorbs intoxication over time. However the rate of absorption and the corresponding time is slow. The professional laboratory will be able to count back the ratio of intoxication, from time of examination and testing, and so determine the level of intoxication to the time of testing or impact.

Should a blood test be done too late, even this sophisticated method of testing may come to incorrect results, but that is only applicable in very few occurrences and can only be utilised as a measure of defence, if there will be proof the test been performed too late.



Allegations of Intoxication without any testing

In short - allegation of intoxication without proper testing - is regularly null and void and not suitable proof.

Such allegations cannot stand a chance of challenge, even if testified by witnesses to have observed drunken behaviour.

Other circumstantial evidence, such as buying liquor or alcohol, just prior and impact, is no practical proof.

Even testimony, that a person observed another to consume alcohol is not factual, as that person does not have the capacity to elaborate the ratio of intoxication.

However if there will be an eye witness testify to have personally seen the person alleged be drinking excessive within a stipulated period of time and specify the drinks, may be recognised as credible and such testimony may lead to a conviction, without blood test, if the quantification and time correlating will leave no doubt, that such consumption must lead the person be over the legal level, no more fit for any taking part in public traffic.

Persons accused by circumstantial evidence and certain not have been intoxicated to the legal level, should cross investigate the credibility of those testimonies utilised to try proving intoxication.

A person not intoxicated, such as a chosen driver for the night, where other passengers did take the opportunity to drink but don't drive, should get proper testimony from those passengers to support his/her position and rebut allegations.




How defending not proven allegations been under the influence, to avoid detrimental results

As mentioned, almost all attempts to prove intoxication, that aren't based on a proper blood analysing test and report, should fail to prove, if challenged the right way.

However a substantial defence isn't as easy neither to do nor to explain. As in all cases of dispute, the different approaches and arguments must be challenged.

A number of factors, as mentioned above, may be relevant and need to be addressed properly, in order rebutting unsubstantial allegations.

The typical case will be, an insured claim against his/her comprehensive insurance cover and get under investigations, that by far too often, end in a claim decline, based on non factual evidence.

Motor Insurance companies suspect intoxication as causation for car accidents easily, but especially if circumstances are alerting. Such circumstances can be:

1. Accident times within the night period

2. Heavy impacts, which may be not occur regularly, in the particular parts of the road, if driving would have been cautious.

3. Interviews undertaken along the road the car been driven and locations such as pubs visited and personal questioned.

4. Checking bank statements, credit card accounts and cell phone locations, in order to find places where liquors may be sold, or pubs, restaurants visited for questioning and checking for purchase, as to ask the shop management for copies of purchases, according to the bank statements etc

It can often be enough that one bought a six-pack beer, not even drinking it, in order to assume intoxication and unfair claim denial.

As for the above samples, the most common allegation of not proven drunk driving, but not least, it is obvious that there isn't a simple answer or advice for solving those unfair declines. Depending on damages and circumstances, it may well be worth appointing a knowledgeable expert in traffic damage compensation matters, or even appoint a non specialised local attorney to get involved for a solution.

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.
