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.

But what can be said here, is that only some damage claims for material compensation will be a quick and elegant matter. Most often it's a more time consuming action and it's always a major factor how the participants acts.

A claim will always work out time consuming, if not a satisfactory settlement offer comes in an early stage of a claim, regardless of from a comprehensive cover or a 3rd party insurance or either from a liable party themselves.

You can cut short on time, if you are prepared for the eventuality of a car accident

The preparation and documentation of a claim for recovery of car accident damages is essential. Depending on information already available, will impact the question of time needed to get all together.

Private formulated claims needs a solid foundation of facts, as well as any other claim adviser, attorney or claim manager depends and must have a documentation, which allows formulating a qualified claim, as good and completing as possible. A demand can only be formulated once all the facts are available.

The timeframe for the preparation of the data and evidence needed can be shortened, if a motorist prepares himself for the eventuality of a car accident and having a accident form at hand, before getting on the road. As we all know, a traffic accident can occur at all times, unexpectedly when driving on South African roads.

If you got a kind of accident form, that gives you some guide what will be important to note and what evidence to secure, will shorten any such time period to get all data ready, dramatically. Utilising a form (RAMLA offer you one, free of charge for download) will even increase the quality of the information what will make a difference in the time to prepare claim and demand compensation.

If you consider utilising a form, make sure it's not at home, but in your car.

The other party can be a prominent disturbing factor in the question of time consume or delays

The duration of the process will sharply expand, if the claim escalates in a dispute with the other party or its representatives. Especially once in a dispute with a South African motor insurance company,time is running against the victim looking forward to compensation and sometimes delays are deliberately utilised, as a tool to exhaust the claimant.

Time is on the side of the insurance, as you want something from them and not vice versa. One must be aware that the habits of the claim department will be different as to those in marketing and sales, working for the same insurance company.

As we just talking time, it can even mean money for storing costs, some insurance companies are reluctant to accept, while being a cause of the delays and the damaged vehicle cannot be disposed either for repair or salvage before the matter is sorted.

RAMLA offers full legal support to solve car accident claim, a comprehensive claim preparation and action to enforce compensation, all the way up to a court case.





Time factors in pursuit of a compensation claim in a court of law

Any solution to get the car accident damage sorted out will always depend on the kind of defence and/or cooperation of the liable party or their insurance company.

As soon a claim for damage compensation will be on dispute, the chances that the matter can find an end shortly is diminishing and at last it may be inevitable, but to hear the matter in court in search for a decision. The further influences of time frames in a trial in court are nearly unpredictable and no one can foresee how long a court case can go on.

Before any car accident claim can go to court, a letter of demand must be send, as soon as possible after gathering all proofs and documentation, directed to the party deemed liable.

If the served summons to initialiese the legal car accident claim, will be answered by the wrongdoer and they objected to it within the 10-day time period after the summons had been served by the sheriffto declare defence or acceptance of the claim. After such time period a further 20 days are given to the defendant to answer the claim within his plea for defence.

All parties have to follow the court procedures, further pleas or proofs are needed and must be prepared, and a trial date has to be found and submitted. To find the earliest date for a hearing is one of the tasks to minimise time delays. Regrettably, some courts are quite busy, and a suitable date for a hearing is not predicable and even the defendants in a car accident damage claim can influence and delay the procedures.

A date for hearing in court should be found not later than 2 to 3 months from date of receiving the opponent's plea. Higher courts in South Africa are quiet busy and before the hearing date some time may go by, especially if the claim value is above R100 000, as this has to be heard in the High Courts.

The duration of a complete claim can never be predicted, but if you mandate RAMLA to enforce your vehicle accident compensation claim, you can rest assured that RAMLA will do all that can be done to prevent any artificial delays in the matter.

A disputed claim in court will never be a short term matter.

Execution by warrant after a successful court case being paid eventually

The bitter truth can be, that even gotten through a legal case in court, having been successfully, that you need to send the sheriff to execute against the property of the debtor.

Times to calculate are those having the warrant issued with the clerk of the court and served to the sheriff in charge for the area of residence of the debtor.

If the sheriffs time table will not be to full, you can expect him/her to act as quick as possible, but it will always be some more days. If the debtor doesn't pay cash, something of value must be attached.

The debtor will be given some time to pay for the sum of money owing plus costs. Once the time of grace will be over, the attached valuables will be sold in public auction.

All together it can easily work out for some 3 to 6 month.

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.
