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.

Received an offer to settle for your motor car accident compensation in South Africa, but not happy with it?

Taking part in daily public traffic, driving your car on South African roads, will at all-time expose you the event of a motor car collision that ends up with damages, the one or other party should pay.

Disputes about the nature and volume of damages a motorist suffered in traffic accidents are common. A variety of problems, argumentation or even denials can be faced once in the process of formulating and enforcing a car accident damage compensation.

An offer to settle and ending a claim for vehicle damage compensation, is very much appreciative and if this offer to pay for the destruction you suffered in the car accident, is fair, one should not hesitate to accept.

Being in a position to evaluate the offer to settle, is fair and complete, you should know exactly what you need to repair or replace rebuilding your damaged vehicle. This is of outmost importance, if you need to deal with a "write off" totalled or total loss, meaning the damage will be uneconomically to repair.

Unfortunately motor car accident damage claims in South Africa are not always amicable to pursuit and can come with financial risks when claiming for car accident compensation.

Given the efforts legal actions in a court of law will entail, a fair settlement is preferable, before legal actions in a court of law kick in.

But the settlement must be not only being fair in terms of compensation value, but even the conditions it sometimes comes with, must be understood and accepted and not being detrimental.

What is an offer to settle and what does mean it?

A settlement offer comes from a party that is liable for pay or compensation of damages caused in a traffic accident.

It will tell you what they (the negligent motorist or an insurance company) are willing to pay as compensation to a victim of a car accident, making good for losses.

This means it's their offer and must not necessarily match, what you claim to be the damages. Therefore the benchmark will be, firstly you need to know what is a minimum for compensation you need repairing your damages auto, professional and being roadworthy again.

A settlement offer will not always equal your losses, and no one is forced to accept such offer. Instead just accepting an offer to settle, unless you are happy with it, you can always engage for betterment.

An offer to settle can come with conditions one will need to abide, once signed. The most common consumer unfriendly settlement offers coming from South African Motor Insurance Companies.

Keep in mind that only a signed settlement offer will convert into a contract and bear the full implications signed up.

Which consequences will a settlement agreement for car accident compensation do have?

In due course of a claim for car accident compensation, that caused damage to property or to vehicles, and finally coming to a point of settlement, matters must be agreed upon and the deal be fixed.

After carefully studying the settlement offer, if sufficient in value of money that will be paid to the one suffered the damages and the check on the terms coming with the settlement offer, the deal can be finalised and signed, if agreed to the content by all parties.

The conclusion, accepting the reimbursement offered to settle, by signing and returning the document to the other party, will trigger the compensation pay-out.

Certainly a verbal agreement can be reached and will constitute a valid contract as well, but it's not recommended concluding the settlement verbally, as it can hardly be verified what has been agreed upon, once the other party doesn't comply.

It's not a big deal to file a settlement agreement in writing, once the conditions are clear and accepted by all participants. Even for smaller amounts of compensation claimed for, a short and simple written statement is advisable.

A settlement agreement, once signed by both the parties, or by one party signed and the other paid or fulfilled the conditions, constitutes a conclusive action, that affirms the settlement offer even without signature.

This is the way how most South African insurance companies conclude a settlement for damages caused in traffic accidents.

Once a settlement agreement has been concluded, it constitutes a contract. If any party breaches the deal, the contracted content can be enforced. On the other hand, when the party honoured the liabilities of the contract, there will be no or little room for opposing or betterment.

A correctly fulfilled settlement agreement will be final, and no court of law will ignore the fact, even if it's found later the settlement will not be suitable to reimburse for the full range of damages suffered.

Obstacles in settlement offers and what need I do know about those?

Obstacles or hurdles, to overcome in the process concluding a settlement offer to pay and eventually close the claim, are common and should be looked on before signing any such offer.

One of the common risks must be seen in a settlement offer that comes "without prejustice". This literally means, the party offering such settlement don't accept the reasons arguments or whatever leads to this offer to settle, as binding for them.

This limitation includes the risk, the other party will not be legally bound to pay or fulfil its part of the offer. It must be clear, that an offer is not a contract. A valid contract must entail the signature or any other proof able acceptance of the parties, or finally concluded by fulfilling the contractual obligations.

This can mean, that a settlement offer coming as "without prejustice" will be a one sided offer, the other party engage into (most often the claimant, suffered the damages will be the one first sign) and once putting the first unconditional signature onto the document and return such to the offering party, will be legally bound to his/her part of the offer, once the other party fulfil or sign.

Such offer can come with limitations to your claim value and can state clauses one don't understand or not estimate the full consequences.

Quite common are agreements between two parties involved in a motor crash, the one - the victim and entitled to compensation - will be insured with a comprehensive motor cover, agrees to the other liable party - not insured against risk originating from car accidents - to just pay the shortfall the comprehensive insurance policy will not cover, as excess or others.

The liable party think to have the matter settled once paid the shortfall to the other party that get payment for the other damages, from his/her own insurance company.

Relying on such "settlement" in the believe to have sorted the matter can be dangerous, as the motor insurance company will more often than not, have the right to recover damages from a liable party, once paying its insured. That certainly can mean, you the liable party paid the excess or shortfall to the other party, cannot be sure not to be forced paying for the full damage once a recovery claim is launched.

Want to know more what will be helpful to know before you contact RAMLA (SA)


What makes a good settlement agreement to end a motor car accident claim?

As always in contractual matters, as a settlement contract or agreement constitutes, the quality must be considered in regard of and to which degree the parties will be satisfied with and to the legal implication it will carry.

Certainly a good settlement agreement will be fair to all the parties involved. But fair is an interpretable substance. In any case, the question of satisfaction with any content of a settlement contract must be sorted out before the contract will be concluded or signed.

In terms of a motor car accident compensation settlement, the agreement can be a good one, if all the damages can be resolved and the repair of the motor vehicle paid for.

A settlement for the reimbursement of destruction to property or the motor vehicle, can even be a compromise and still be regarded as a good settlement, if the compromise will be wise and justified to avoid other implications, i.e. going to a court of law fighting for fair compensation.

A fair compromise takes from both sides concluding the settlement agreement. A one sided compromise will not really be one, as it will be more a cementation of unduly losses for one party.

Further a good settlement contract should be binding both the parties to fulfil what has been agreed upon. It should not aim overcharging or putting disadvantage to a party that is willing to settle a claim.

A good settlement agreement will not leave room for interpretations or confusion. It should be in writing and duly signed by all parties.

A concluded settlement will be final and no recourse will be possible.

Once a settlement agreement or contract has been established, either by practical fulfilment or by signing, it will be final.

No recourse or actions can be taken if the agreed settlement has been duly fulfilled.

South African law only allows one legal action stemming from the same cause of impact. That means all what is of relevance or value must be claimed in one action. Once this action has been completed, be it by judgement or settlement agreement, this one was it.

The South African law prohibits a claimant to raise further legal action or complaints aimed for a betterment or correction of damages, even if it has not been known to the claimant that those circumstances or damages have been existing and only found out about too late, once a settlement or judgement closed a case, i.e. during the practical motor car repair phase.

Compensation for hidden damages, not detected before the claim is finalised, cannot be claimed for after the close of the case.

That will once again demonstrate the need of - very carefully - examine any motor car accident damages, before a claim is pursuit, but at least before all options of amending a pending case are past.

Looking on a settlement offer from this perspective, it may well be clever to accept even a compensation that falls slightly short and will not completely cover your vehicle accident repair costs.

But certainly this does not mean you should accept just every offer only to avoid to battle further.

An offer received from motor insurance companies, unfortunately most often will be short
in terms of fair compensation and most often it's worth to take on the challenge and go for a betterment.

Evaluating on which condition one should accept such or any settlement offer is a very individual thing and no general rule or advice can be applied. Your own motivation must always have the say in the process to take on a compensation offer for the better, or make the shortcut deciding cutting your losses.


RAMLA will be your   one-stop car accident claim service   in South Africa


  A settlement offer must not always be full and fair to pay your car accident damage   Be careful and check all that comes with any agreement you sign in terms of a car accident settlement offer   RAMLA will check any agreement for you, but leave the last decision of acceptance to you   Lucky you when you got the compensation paid and the car accident damage is repaired



Very often observed in the routine of the pursuit of motor car accident damage claims, offers to settle for vehicle damages are insufficient and not acceptable in terms of the amount of compensation to be paid for the vehicle repair, or even important, the terms and conditions coming with the offer.

If you receive an offer that is different to what you believe or had been assessed to repair your motor vehicle, it will be wise to find out what is the reason for the divergent offer.

Insurance companies sometimes come just with an unspecified offer stating a certain amount of damage to be paid for by them. They may have a reason to arrive on such amount to offer you when they process the damage claim. They may not explain or copy you the documents on which basis they arrived ffigures in the settlement offer to compensate you for your car accident damage, unless demanding and demanding.

It will be worth trying to motivate them to copy such documentation to you, so that you can double check the facts, enabling you either to accept or, if you are convinced by such documentation or having your arguments forwarded to the party offers the settlement, in order demonstrating your facts and get the offer to settle amended.

If the difference between your fair compensation expectation and the settlement offer, will be significant and the positions as far apart that no way leads to conclude a settlement and you have exhausted all other avenues of demand you need to go to court and fight legally for your car accident compensation.

But it may well be worthwhile getting an specialist for motor car accident damage recovery, such as RAMLA involved, before the long road for justice in a court of law should be considered and seen as the very last resort.

If you consider accepting a settlement offer at all, to avoid a court case, after you have carefully evaluated the material component of the offer, always look to the terms and condition this offer to settle for your losses suffered in the motor car crash may be based on and forming part of the offer and the settlement as such.

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
