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.

Insurance companies' procedures to minimise car accident compensation

The insurance company paid the damage to its insured, but claims back money from you?



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


  Material Damage suffered in a car accident





If you receive an unacceptable settlement offer from an insurance company in South Africa to compensate you for car accident damages, you most probably need help to get them going further and to accept the 3rd party motor damage claim, or your own claim, based on the comprehensive motor insurance cover you concluded with the car insurance company.

We all know that lots of traffic accident victims, involved in a car accident on South African roads, try hard to solve the vehicle accident compensation matter.

Some motorists work hard to get fair compensation in dealing with the other parties on their own, before they look for support, if no amicable or even any solution can be achieved.

Fair compensation is achieved, if you will be able to repair your damaged motor car in a traffic accident, comfortable to the state it was in before the accident occurs and that should be done in a reasonable time frame.

Those are the basic needs any car accident victims want to see achieved.


South African law reflect just this as it states generally that the perpetrator will be liable to pay for the motor car damage to be repaired to the state the vehicle had been, before the accident impact.

Unfortunately the common experiences with motor car accident claims is, that much too much time is consumed before any kind of settlement will be reached. Due to a lack in South African law, that not all of the motor accident victims are entitled to claim for car hire expenses, as this is presently restricted to just business/earning needs, meaning only if one uses the vehicle to directly perform the job or business, will be entitled to car hire compensation.

Insurance companies' procedures to handle motor car accident compensation claims:



South Africa's Insurance companies often try to minimise or avoid compensation payment for the car accident damage (partly or fully) to the detrimental of the victim of a car crash, in 3rd party claims or even to its comprehensive covered insurance customer, suffered damages to property in a traffic collision.

This will especially apply, if a comprehensive insured will internally be qualified as "bad risk". Lot of motor insurance companies will deny a claim more easily in such circumstances as they probably would do in a case the insured is categorised as "good risk".

Strategies or behaviour seen sometimes, that can lead to problems, delays or other inconveniences leading to headache, can comprise of keeping very quiet and not to move unless under immense pressure, not accepting liability on behalf of the insured for the car accident at all, accepting only a portion of the motor car accident damage claim, downscaling of the material damage through vehicle damage assessment or even blaming the other party as being liable or at least partly liable for the cause of the car crash at all or blaming the incurred of a breach of terms.

Headlines and Issues on this page





What are the consequences, if the motor insurance company's cancelled or revoked the cover of its insured?

At the very beginning of a compensation claim addressed to the motor insurance, one must report of the matter to them to open a claim. It will be crucial for the insured to report any matter that can have an impact on the cover of the risk insured, that can provoke any claims now or in future and inform the insurance company in time and as stipulated in the terms & conditions agreed, when concluding the contract.

Just the mistake not to report the claim in time and in the correct manner, can lead to problems and may effect at worse to a decline of any insurance cover.

For the comprehensive insured it means, getting nowhere near to compensation, but for the 3rd party the denial or not acceptance or even cancellation of a policy, the culprit believe to have, can create the effect that the protection the insured believes to have, will not pay anything - not the third party (victim) or to the insured at all.

For a 3rd party it does not mean they will not be entitled for compensation and not get a pay just due to a decline of an insurance policy. The difference will be that the liable party (believed being insured) must pay the car accident damages out of its own pocket.

The value of car accident compensation can be significant and only a few will be able just to pay cash a substantial amount out of savings or cash deposits available.

For a third party, expecting the insurance to pay for the wrongdoer, it's now not only to fight to get the damages accepted but even to make a plan how and when receive cash.

Dealing with motor insurance companies in South Africa is not always a walk in the part, but if a claim has been finalised and approved, to what level or degree ever, eventually a pay-out can rightly be expected.

But there can be a number of other reasons for the insurance company to decline a claim, based on a breach of the insurance contract. Outstanding premiums, driving under influence of alcohol or even minor issues, can still constitute a breach of terms.

It may be vital to look into any such decline of cover, as by far not all decisions to decline a cover, will be correct and according to the terms. Even insurance companies may take chances, where it may be possible to escape a pay, just on the basis of revoking the cover.

The insurance company act on behalf of the insured to process the claim

In all regularity you need to deal with the insurance company and the admin in a compensation claim, where the other party is accused being the wrongdoer and to be liable for the motor car accident, will be insured.

Not to get in any form of prejustice, it is important to know that most motor insurance companies do not allow the insured party to accept any liability, for the cause of a motor collision.

If the insured and deemed liable motorist is fair and does admit being on fault, right at the scene of accident, the insured is at risk losing insurance protection, as to the terms and conditions.

So the insured may lose his/her vehicle insurance cover, if they acknowledging liability.

The insurance company most often take over the reign now on behalf of the insured legitimate driver or car owner and you may have to deal with them.

An insurance claim negotiator certainly does have a lot off experience how to handle a claim and most importantly how to do that in favour of the insurance company. A layman or motorist, just been snarled up in a road collision, often does not have the experience to get along with them.

Many different factors, issues or arguments can effectively give problems, to get the insurance claim approval. Any compensation claim will be unique and the actions or reactions needed to have the matter approved can entail a variety of issues and dealing must always be individually and depended on the matter.

Minimum compensation pay-out is a certain need for insurance companies and must be recognize a legitimate attempt

A legitimate attempt however must not necessarily be successful. How one is coming along with the motor insurance can have a lot of factors. In cases of dispute, the claimant is always in the weaker position as he/she has a damaged motor car to fix, but the insurance does not.

Going forward and motivate the insurance claim administrator, to go on and approve a damage claim, can be a challenge, as time is on the side on the insurance side.

Putting forward a reasonable and fair claim will even need some permanently pressure onto the insurance people. But more importantly one must put facts forward, which cannot easily be rebutted, is the task of the day.

The victim of the motor accident is required to deliver certain documents, before they even decide to entertain the claim. Such documents should identify the claimant and the car owner, your general claim and some other documents for instance a copy of your driving licence and the vehicle registration paper. They probably inform you in detail of what they do require, in your specific case.

The claim negotiator will look critical on your documents in order to find agruments to decline or downscale the case and it's important you do your homework, before submission. Alternations later on can be seen as that you are in conflict with your own arguments or facts.

What follows in cases with more serious damages, most often a vehicle damage assessment will be envisaged to calculate or assess the damages. The result of the examination will be served to the insurance in the form of an assessment report, drawn up by the appointed assessor.

Right here other problems may occur, far before anything to the cause of accident itself had been exchanged. This problems will be in the nature and content of the damage calculation and findings of the assessor in charge.

Further problems can arise when it comes to verify the arguments of the cause and the determination who is the one at fault, acting negligent to provoke the collision. Arguments of liability are certainly a tool to reduce the part of responsibility and consequently diminish the pay-out.

Lot of shortfalls resulting out of the time factor, the insurance company has on its side and technically apply attempts for more delays are a well-known procedure to weaken the nerves of a claimant.

A claim put forward to the insurance company will mostly not be a quick and amicable matter, so prepare investing quite a time to sort out thinks. If you expect that the insurance company will correspond to time lines set out for them to comply, more often than not you will be disappointed, they don't.

They are in a better position, as you want something to achieve and they actually are not keen to pay out more as the minimum they do need. It's legal, but not amicable and fair.

Any force to respond in time, will only apply if the matter will be in a court of law. All must now comply and act according to court rules and orders and all participants must apply and abide those time thresholds, not risking a default judgement.

Salvage in a car accident           Salvage in a car accident



Often in privately handled cases, in dealing with the insurance claim negotiator, they just cooperate too little with the claimant.

An example of how much ignorance one may face when dealing with the motor insurance companies or its brokers RAMLA likes to highlight this case:

A South African motorist, who approached RAMLA for advice, was fortunate to find, that his particular accident had been monitored and recorded by a fixed camera. Further lucky he made it possible to receive a copy of the accident tape, showing the impact in real time and documenting the complete accident.

This is hard evidence and left little space to rebut facts and proof beyond doubt that the liable person did not stop at an intersection, clearly marked with a stop sign and further proofs that the claimant took all evasive action he could. The matter of negligence has been undoubtedly detected as being the insured motorist.

He sends a copy of the video clip to the insurance company, just to hear that the first sending was not received by them. After posting another copy documenting the traffic accident, the insurance employee argued they cannot technically open the file.

The copy RAMLA received open up in seconds.

After lots of in and out and exchange of damage repair quotations and whatever had been asked to be supplied, the insurance eventually came up with a settlement offer.

The received settlement offer was to a lower amount than just the lowest vehicle damage repair quotation supplied and to the evidence the insured must be regared as 100% liable. Being desperately, disappointed and exhausted form the process, the claimant who handled the claim on its own, decided to accept the shortfall to avoid further delays and inconvenience.

Unsatisfying outcomes of compensation claim, should be challenged and disputed

Once a motor accident compensation claim is reported, documented and pursuit and the Insurers, or Party's decision isn't acceptable, the matter should be disputed.

A dispute is still to be launched with the one decided unsatisfactory and the attempt must be to demonstrate that the reasons for, if even given in a reasonable manner, are not applicable or even incorrect.

Some South African motor insurance companies do have special dispute resolution departments, which may review the claim outcome.

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
