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.

Do you need to defend an unrealistic high compensation claim as result of a traffic accident?

When you had been unlucky involved in a traffic accident on South Africa's roads and deemed to be the liable party of damage caused in a motor car accident, you probably need to prepare a defence against unreasonable compensation claims.

A claim defence is only useful however, if there are serious doubts about the liability or a portion of liability the validity of the claim itself or the amount claimed by the other party.

Being successful in defending a compensation claim against you, one must have proof to support your side of the arguments to dispute unreasonable claims. When you consider defending a motor car accident damage claim, you should calculate risk and chances. It should always looked on legal cost when considering defending a legal action in South Africa.



If you are involved in a car accident in South Africa and like to know what to do, please read more.



Reasons of dispute:

A reasons for a disagreement on the damage listing can be, that parts of the quotation do not apply to the real damage caused throughout this accident. The first approach is to compare the quotation with hopefully taken photographs to check the basics.

Unfortunately most of the time the photographs taken at the scene of accident are not good enough to enable a knowledgeable person to see what is actually damaged and how serious.

But if i.e the one car just hit another car from behind and that one subsequently hits the one before it and they stay straight bumper to bumper, it is unlikely that i.e. a headlight is damaged. If such items which obviously cannot be damaged in this particular incident are listed in the repair quote, it must be double checked.

Further it is worth the time to compare the quotes received - if more than one - finding out which one can reflect the true damage.

Another major point for a determination of the repair costs are always the actual market value of the motor car - before impact. This is a tool very often applied by insurance companies in South Africa to minimise the claim.

Certainly anyone has the right to look into this matter. If the repair cost exceeds the market value - again before impact - the car can be qualified as a write off and this means that the maximum compensation will be this value minus salvage.

Salvage itself can be another criterion to disagree, as determined to high or too low.

It will be a challenge to look on all those for a layman in need to defend the claim against him/her.

You can always approach RAMLA claim management to support you in doing so.

RAMLA support clients/members by mediation in a disputed car accident damage compensation claim

Claim mediation, in order to sort out car accident compensation demands, is needed either to be fairly compensated or to rebut unreasonable or inflated claims, attempting not needing having a claim escalating to a level of a court of law, finding a solution and settlement, in pre-litigation.

RAMLA Motor car accident in South Africa RAMLA Motor car accident in South Africa RAMLA Motor car accident in South Africa

After a motor car collision, all parties involved in the car crash looking forward, to sort out any possible damage to vehicle or property, that results from the motor accident. When hopefully no one had been harmed or suffered bodily injury, the material/financial part of the car accident damage will be focus on.

Before any claim help, or legal assistance, in whichever form can be effectively provided, all participants in the traffic accident must doing their homework, to gather proof and evidence, identify parties in order finding out the position and degree of liability for any damages. Once done, the one or other file a claim for car accident damage compensation, against another.

Preparing and formulating, demand or claim compensation, needs a lot of knowledge. A compensation action for the pay of car accident damages, can only be successful, if the facts provide evidence and the right argumentation, based on the traffic legislation and common law, is applied.

RAMLA (Road Accident Management & Legal Action) is a professional, experienced expert in all such Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) matters.

It is apparent, that a mutual agreement about the cause of an accident or the value of the claim, the degree of liability, or quantification of damages to motor cars, will rarely be found in the first place, without differences.


In an attempt, getting the parties closer to a solution, which does not require going to a court of law and taking legal actions, it may be helpful entering into mediation.

Headlines and Issues on this page

The way or process going to a court of law is a time consuming, costly and unpleasant undertaking. It cannot be emphasised enough, that a solution out of court, will most often be more favourable for all the parties, even if it will mean compromising somewhere.

Taking legal action will only be appropriate, once the differences are as far from any compromise, that no solution can be found in pre litigation.

But parties more often involved in motor car accident disputes, do know that it is a hurdle for another to take matters to a court of law, banking the other party may be reluctant to take legal recourse, and making matters difficult for a claimant i.e. by not engaging in the matter, or simply deny a claim, getting away with it with impunity.

It will however not be a good idea just to back down and cut losses, if the matter will be enforceable.

     case of motor car accident damage   RAMLA car accident claim management will take the initiative, to negotiate with the other parties involved in a complicated motor car accident, to determine damage and the apportionment of liability for the auto crash damage compensation.



Mediation between two parties may be a good tool, if the car accident matters are not as clear as wanted   and there is no straight forward position to find, to work on.





What's the process in mediation for a solution?

Finding a solution in disputes of car accident damage claims and not just going to court, the process of mediation should start by staying in touch with the other party.

The differences should be discussed openly and the evidence put onto the table. Once this basis is reached and the facts and concerns addressed, it's the time convincing the other party, whether the claim is reasonable and fair or not.

In the now on-going process of negotiations, the quality of proof and arguments are essential. Convincing the other party or the motor insurance company, to arrive on a basis of mutual acceptance, is not always easy or successful.

Parties or insurance companies, on behalf of the insured, not always agree upon a settlement basis, in an attempt avoiding any compensation payment, despite good evidence is given.

Parties or motor insurance companies, on behalf of the insured, not always agree upon a settlement basis, in an attempt avoiding any compensation payment, despite good evidence is given.

In an attempt to escape the burden of liability, often arguments are just fabricated trying to minimise, escape of shift liability to the other party. South African motor insurance companies tend to believe its insured, sometimes over the presentation of clear evidence, once the insured claim not being the liable and causal for the motor accident.

When it comes to settle a dispute, before the matter must be heard in a court of law, we need to distinguish on the way in mediation, dealing with a claim directed to a private or corporate party or to a motor insurance company.

A solution by comparing facts may be reached easier with a not insured party, rahter then with an insurer or its broker. South African motor insurance companies, act very static, once they believe they found the position they want apply in a claim.

Mediation is a matter of dialog. Any party can start the process.

But having a good chance being successful with mediation, you need to know how to deal and explain a dispute, probably emanating from damage calculation or matters of liability, or whatever may be in the way of a final solution. Finalising the process of mediation for a settlement in motor car accident claims positively, it needs willingness on all sides, finding a solution mutually accepted.

RAMLA offers full legal support to solve a car accident compensation claim, starting with a comprehensive claim preparation and subsequent legal action to enforce fair compensation or defend against inflated or unrealistic recovery actions, all the way up to a court case, if no solution can be found in pre-litigation.





Once it appears difficult to come to results, the threat of legal action can help ending the dispute in a car accident case

Putting forward your qualified arguments now, in mediation, the other party might find that there will be little chance to fight against it and making them more open to a settlement to the right time.

The threat escalating the matter to a level of a court of law, will be a good measure and at least a summons should be issued, underscoring you willingness and ability to go forward, if eventually all attempts finding common ground fails, compelling the other party to engage in the legal procedures, and finding another chance to revitalise negotiations or pursuit the full action.

Insurance companies and private or cooperate parties must regularly appoint legal service defeating the claim, not risking to formally loose the case, by not abiding to court procedures, which regularly comes with costs.

Once the matter is now transferred to the next level, the persons engaged in pre litigation negotiation can change to attorneys or other legal advisers. There is always the possibility, those more knowledgeable persons in terms of legal procedures and risk in legal cases, can come to the conclusion better advising their client, accepting the claim, rather than fight it.

RAMLA claim management will argue for a client/member, in such way finding a satisfactory solution in time. But if all such still fails, the law suit must be pursued in search of a judgment, deciding on the facts, who and to which extent the liable must compensate, the other for losses in the car accident matter.

Taking legal actions, should always be considered, where merits will build a strong case.

The decision to be made going to a court of law for an impartial or unbiased decision, should be considered as soon as merits are strong, the value of the compensation action appropriate and some ability to fund for initial costs are in place and difficulties with others or parties cannot be resolved and settled, in pre-litigation. (all before a court of law will be involved)

Parties or legal representatives, attorneys at law, insurance claim adjusters, involved in the process to settle, cannot be forced by any other party to accept or pay a claim. It is too easy for experienced and not as honest parties in a motor vehicle accident damage claim, to just not participate or offer whatever they feel fit to do, as many insurance claim adjusters or investigators suggest.

Many of those decisions or offers don't base on factual proof, but just by determination of somebody not really do have legal qualifications to judge, so as i.e. a magistrate or judge do have.

Those deciders are legally allowed to be biased and offer or not, what they might feel it will be fair. The party been offered a short falling settlement, however can even not be forced to accept an insufficient offer to settle.

Reasons for shortfall can be many, from wrong determination of causation leading to apportioning damages (often seen in decisions insurance claim adjuster make), to differences in repair value and damages, wrong applying values, such as market value or better pre-collision value of a damaged motor vehicle, or in determination of the salvage value or disposal of the salvage (wreck of a car, not economically to be repaired and called "write off").

A court of law is a fair and credible instance, which do have the power to force participation of reluctant parties, analyse proof and evidence in an unbiased manner and providing the platform for expert or witness examinations.

A court of law is a powerful and independent institution, staffed with real learned colleagues in law, deciding a matter before them, after carefully evaluates all evidence offered. Certainly even not all decision in a court of law getting applause, but undoubtedly a high number or the majority of cases have been ruled upon fairly and remain unchallenged.

The damage value does have influence in deciding taking legal actions

Total damage value of car destruction, or the gap between settlement offer and reasonable expectation, will be the cardinal factor deciding taking legal actions or not.

Smaller amounts of differences, up to R 18 000 can be challenged easily in the small claims courts in South Africa. That means, even smaller amounts of claims do have the appropriate forum for a challenge, cost effective and relatively quick and simple in its process.

The problem however will be, that parties must represent themselves and no legal representation or active participation in the litigation is allowed. But certainly preparation and sufficient advice, before the hearing of the matter, is allowed and most appropriate.

RAMLA do offer an effective and low cost support in that regard, worthwhile to look on and check out.

Cases of higher values as R 18 000 must be heard in the appropriate courts of law and will most commonly need a lot of knowledge to process the matter according to the rules of the court and providing sufficient evidence in adequate manner.

The problem zone is for claims, just exceeding the threshold of the small claims courts. Processing claims for about R 20 000 to R 40 000, can end up not be economically worth taking legal representation.

It may however be a very good step, serving at least a summons to the other party, and see if and how they respond. RAMLA offers a low cost solution to file individual summons for clients, prepared to help with the service requirement personally.

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
