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

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

Should a matter be taken to a court of law?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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


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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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.





Car accident lawyers and professional claim managers to analyse, support and pursuit your material car accident claim, effective and economical, nationwide in South Africa.

You will find a lot of useful information on the RAMLA (Road Accident Management & Legal Action) web pages.


Motor car accident damage claim service, in South Africa
First of all we have to definite what we have to understand will be full and fair motor accident damage compensation. But even before doing so, we have to clarify that the South African System of motor car accident compensation, is split off into the sector of bodily injuries, which is dealt with very different to that of material damage compensation. The web pages you are browsing currently only focus on the material and civil claim for you to receive the full and fair traffic accident damage compensation occurred to your vehicle.

The South African law say: You should be materially compensated so that you will be able to have your damaged auto repaired to the state it was in, before the traffic collision impact. That means either you cannot expect a new car (some exemptions excluded here i.e. if your motor vehicle is very much new, so saying not older than a year since being on the road the first time) if your one is fairly used and the marks of wear and tear are visibly impacting you auto value.

But even an older motor car must be repaired to manufacturer's standards to maintain the roadworthy status of the then repaired vehicle.

So to say it in short, get it back on track, but do not try to make a fortune out of it, as that can easily backfire on you. But this does not mean you have to agree to too many compromises in terms of your motor car repairs. To have your damaged car back into the state it had been before, you need to prepare a solid base of value analysis for your compensation, either by a qualified repair quotation or by a professional damage assessment.

But nothing is always stringent and you cannot take one argument alone to find the correct compensation basis. There may even be differences in what you might have to accept as motor car accident repair compensation, in either a third party claim or a claim you direct to your own comprehensive motor insurance policy.

A claim launched with you motor insurance company will have to look on what you have covered under your policy and probably have some contributions to accept, due to the content of your policy.

A 3rd party claim, directed to the perpetrator however must give you full compensation and no clauses, as insurance excess or other limitations in your insurance policy apply.

In most cases, you should have some professional support. If you want to get the matter sorted out quickly, possibly with less costs as possible, and being compensated for your car accident damage fairly, you should consider and let a car accident damage claims specialist such as RAMLA, or your local attorney working for you.

Declined or apportioned cases of motor car accident damage compensation can have very detrimental effects in regard to an unsatisfying settlement offer.

It should however be brought to a claimants attention, that it will not be wise, accepting any such decline or apportioning, without looking onto the details.

A number of such declined or disputed claims, does have the merits to be paid in full, despite an insurance admin or a party or a representative of a party may argue differently.

It will not be wise, just leaving the scene of the accident, once the police is called, but late. Often seen is that the parties in fulfiling the duty reporting, are separately going to a police station and file a report, without the other motorists or parties being with them.

Such report is not of good evidence, as it's a one sided statement, without any verification. If the motorists involved in the auto collision, decide not to wait for the police taking down the report and the circumstances and reveal personal data, all the parties should at least go together to the next police station, directly after the impact, and report and sign the report.

Denied, repudiated or rejected car accident compensation claim, or simply ignored, not entertained

A motor accident compensation claim can be accepted or be denied, not entertained or just be ignored. A claim which will be denied should, but must not always come with reasons for the denial.

Unfortunately denying a compensation action by just stating either not to entertain a claim, or the accused simply saying not being the cause of the traffic accident and in so far not liable, is easy to do and misuse and a bare denial will challenge the claimant coming up with decisive actions.

As South African law, put the burden of proof onto the victim of a traffic accident, seeking compensation. That clearly imply the victim must sue another, proof allegations and damages, in order to get a claim entertained and accepted, or being forced to look for support, in a civil legal action in a court of law, against the alleged wrongdoer.

A claim put forward to the deemed liable party caused the traffic collision, throughout negligent or recklessness driving, or just not having been vigilant enough while driving, can even be disputed, if not denied in full.

A claim dispute will most commonly focus on wrongdoing of the claimant, alleging the demanding driver of being contributable to the cause of the accident, throughout various forms of allegations.

The apportioning of damages act will be a base for arguments to dispute even a valid claim, unfortunately sometimes ridiculously and unashamed bending the true course of the matter into some contributable liability, commonly accused by citing case law.

Some South African motor insurer goes as far as saying:

We quote from a case with a well-known South African car insurer that follows its own way,

Motor car accident in South Africa and like to know what to do, please read more. Motor car accident in South Africa and like to know what to do? Motor car accident in South Africa
" The only time our client is 100% legally liable for an incident is with a rear ender and when a client collide with a parked vehicle."

If such would be reality, it will simply mean, 90% or more of all motor accidents in South Africa, which ends up with damages, will be seen that both parties will have contributed, either way and a fair pay will not happen in all those cases, if it could be sustained.

True however is, that the South African rules of the road imposes some duties on all motorists, in order to drive carefully and avoid impacts as good as possible and certainly being aware of potential danger using the roads at all time, especially at danger areas or other road/street locations, a potential danger must or should be anticipated.

But there will be a high number of motorists that abide to all those obligations and notwithstanding being innocently involved in car accidents, looking for a fair compensation and not for a fight on ridicules' technicalities.

Not attending a valid claim, for auto damage compensation, is a bad behaviour.

Ignorance instead of fairness and not attending a submitted claim, the claiming party should not allow.

Unfortunately a party reluctant to notice and/or react to demands will be a challenge for all claimants, as attempts of hiding is one solution, for some less humorous contemporaries, to get away from responsibilities for fair damage compensation.

It will need some attention discovering the residence and valuables of a reluctant party, deemed liable for the causation of a car accident, to sue them for damages.

But even some admins of South African motor insurance companies, sometimes take a stance to tell a claimant, they simply refuse to entertain this particular claim, as they feel it's unsubstantiated, despite it may well be and only because the insured car driver may have fabricated and presented a false story.

In case a motor insurer act the way of ignoring a claim, there is at least the way to take matters further, without additional investigations as it may be needed in a direct matter with the other party, sue the insured motorist for damages in a court of law and so forcing the party to engage in a matter, and if positively resolved, to pay.

Rebut an unfair claim denial and present facts and evidence

Claim denial, repudiation or rejection may come in different varieties, from a completely rejected claim, over party denied liability, or by applying the possible effects derived from the apportionment of damages act, blaming another party being part to the causation of the particular incident.

Any kind of shifted liability, from the negligent driver to the victim, will have negative impacts on compensation and downscale any damage pay-out calculation.

In as many car accident compensation cases, we have analysed in the past years, not just a small number of declines must be named, not been qualified or justified to decline a claim action.

It should be brought to attention of the reader that claim administrators, claim handlers, brokers or legal advisers or however named, in charge of a first desicion of the merrits of a claim, most commonly don't have any legal qualification as just training and may be experience.

In light of that, many of those biased decisions to decline or reject a claim on reasons of contributable causation, should be challenged and if uphold, taken to a court of law for ruling, where legal profession prevails, being able to verify unbiased any given matter.

With a bit a luck the admin or person declining a claim give at least some reason for arriving at a decline, that can be looked on and probably be adjusted by professional prepared and presented evidence. Especially some motor insurance admins however can take a tuff stance, giving a claimant a hard time.

A prosperous way supporting and help solve a legitimate claim, can be achieved, if the insured, liable party causing the traffic accident take a fair stance and support a claimant's case, if declined i.e. in matters of apportionment.

It will be the insured person that needs to stand a civil law suit in a court of law and not the motor insurance admin. If the person caused the accident out of whatever reason, but certainly most commonly not deliberately, be honest and fair and not eager to be involved in a court action, this person will engage in the matter and press onto the insurance company to move on and come to a mutual agreed settlement with the claiming party, provided the arguments are indeed on the side of the claimant and not fabricated.

By presenting facts and evidence, in form of pictures, sketches, witness testimony or other items suitable to demonstrate what indeed had happen, accomplice by a professional and competent report and demand, addressing what will be at stake, either in terms of the impact of the car accident, or damage calculation, it will be the right thing to do and should help to get things solved.

A qualified claim denial must be analysed regarding facts

A claim for motor car accident damage compensation entertained but rejected, based on facts that are valid points, needs to be looked on in detail.

Certainly not every claim made from a motorist believed being the sole victim, must always be according to the law and rules of the road. Some people just trust its feeling of what will be justified in the matter before them, forgetting that there are reasonable obligations posed on all motorists, taking part in public traffic.

The main factors of this obligations are to be aware of dangerous situations that may come across the driving path to all times, monitor the way in front and around a car driver to be aware of danger that may arrive out of other drivers negligence, especially in areas of increased danger, driving at an appropriate speed and always keeping proper safety distances between motor cars, are the essentials that needs to be abided to.

Furthermore the rules of South African roads oblige a motorist, to do all not to harm others body, live or property, avoid traffic collision wherever a driver will be reasonable able doing so, in applying breaks, swearing out of the way etc.

The emphasis here however is on - reasonable able -. No car driver must fulfil magic or acrobatic driving action and must or should only do what is within his reasonable capability to avoid an impact that is triggered by another car driver, negligently participating in the on-going traffic and causing danger to other by bad and irresponsible driving.

As to the many possibilities accusing another, having failed to abide to those reasonable duties, a high number of claims are denied or apportioned (holding the other party to account to a per cent age) on those reasons. But those reasons must be reasonably upheld and proven, according to an individual and particular car accident.

This is where the majority of allegations of apportioning the causation of a car accident fail to stand a review.

Many such case declines or partly declines emanate from motor insurance admins decisions. They do have an arsenal of so called case law examples, that will be cited to impress a claiming party, that the law already has been applied and found that the individual behaviour of a claimant, not abiding to all possible obligations, be good enough to held them contributable liable, for the cause of the car accident, meaning they need take care of a portion of damage compensation.

It will be taken lightly, that the definitions and former court decision can only be cited for the principle of a particular case and not for the determination. The cases analysed and attended however reveal just the opposite. The case declined of such non-conforming reasons (not abiding to the extended duties of the road) commonly lack evidence.

A claimant will be presented with a copy of a previous, sometimes years or decade old decisions, as the motivation for a decline. A decline or apportionment of damages can have highly detrimental effects to any compensation, after calculating cases to rates of liability taken on the sole discretion of a claim admin or party or legal representative, as damages to the other (commonly the insured party) will be taken into calculation.

We all do know, that new or relatively new motor vehicles requires an insurance policy, as risks of loss are high or finance do take it as prerequisite to be granted. This may influence a damage calculation with an uninsured, whose motor car may not be as new anymore and in turn car values may be lower. Higher damage repair calculations of the insured motor car will have heavy weight, even if the per cent age will be 80% in favour or the claimant, leading to no or just a very tiny amount of compensation offered.

Confronted with such scenario, it will be worthwhile to look onto matters in detail and get a professional involved, even if it will trigger some costs.

There are many such cited cases that have been ruled over upon or differently by other judges, just coming to a very different ergo.

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
