Don't be fooled - badly treated - and do not accept unfair Settlement offers - from any South African Motor Insurance.

             If anything doesn't go to plan, get professional support.             RAMLA may just be the right service

Motor Insurance cover gives an insured some protection against the risk of car accident collisions in public traffic for compensation of damages caused in traffic accidents. But by far not all claims will go through smoothly. Be aware of a variety of possible obstacles.

Obviously there are differences as how South African Motor Insurer handles compensation claims. There are comprehensive insurance cover policies and 3rd party cover contracts. The comprehensive cover safeguard both - damages to own property, such as the insured vehicle and the 3rd party damages - as third party cover only indemnifies the insured against claims made from other parties for compensation of destruction out of vehicle accidents, they are deemed to be liable for.

While the outmost important task for a comprehensive insured motorist is to maintain and adhere to all obligations concluded with the policy contract, not risking problems if it comes to claim for damages, 3rd party claims are more vulnerable to deep scrutinising of circumstances and subject to defensive actions or short falling settlement offers.         Don't compromise without good reason!

Caught up in a car accident

in South Africa, may force a party to claim damages from the wrongdoer,

or may lead to the need to defend against inflated or unrealistic claims.



RAMLA - Road Accident Management & Legal Action

Car accident lawyers and professional claim managers, enforcing traffic collision damages, effective, decisive but affordable.



Caught up in a traffic collision were motor cars/vehicles been involved, most of the time material damage or damage to property such as cars or other amenities, will come along with the impact.

An impact causes damages and compensation for repairs is automatically at stake.





RAMLA do concentrate on material or financial damage compensation claims, to get you be paid from the wrongdoer and/or liable party, in an accident scenario.

Such compensation claim can be one directly targeted against a wrongdoer in person, or dealing with representatives such as Lawyers or Motor Insurance Company claim deciders as a 3rd party claim.

Any claim needs to be funded on evidence and factual arguments supported by proof.

Proofing a claim is often easier said as done, as proof comes - in almost all cases - from the circumstances of the accident and evidence need attention right at the scene of impact.

Given if it is missed to secure evidence at the scene and its been not thoroughly attended to, it is time to do it now and act to secure all facts possible.

It is certainly not impossible to get such evidence, even in time after the accident, but it can be more difficult.



Free case analyse!

Dear valued reader, checking out the RAMLA car accident compensation platform; obviously you do have some traffic accident damage issues to solve.

Contact RAMLA for a free check and advice about your particular case issue. Just tell us about what happened and problem you face.






It may happen that potential witnesses left without identification, debris be cleared, faulty traffic lights be repaired, or CCTV footage deleted.

Pictures from the scene, document vehicle positions - damages etc., can only be taken, if and when cars still be in its places, which - once available - will have significant value in proofing facts and help reconstruct the impact or scenario.







As much important evidence is in itself, it is evenly relevant to know how to use it.

The ultimate goal is to be compensated for losses.

Experience is needed to be knowledgably and competently in order to address a claim and achieve a fair compensation pay.





Once a claim formulated, documented and served, still the reaction of other parties needs to be waited for and the content thereof to be analysed.

Results will define actions as what steps will or need to be taken next.





As a claim is formulated and supplied, it is to no certainty that reporting a fair claim, even if it is well documented, must lead the other party agree and accept and certainly pay the damages claimed.

Disputes can arise about the way all unfolded, the question of liability can be seen from different points of view, damage value or Quantum be under dispute and many more aspects of disputes can be raised, too much to get to in this column.





Another weak point can be a lack in knowledge how to handle a compensation claim.

People only looking for some advice only a while or even after a longer period of time, past the actual accident, and visit Web Pages such as this one you browse now - often late, and in the meantime doing all they can to address a compensation action to his/her own knowledge.



Many try to act on what may be at hand and they find and regard themselves to be fit for it.

This may work for a number of cases, as matters are clear and facts at hand are strong in its evidential role and the opponent or defendant do not argue unfair.

However it would be too optimistic to believe it is the normality. It is not, as it is almost the opposite, as many cases end up unsatisfactory.





Results or settlement offers may be incorrect in adjustment of liability, often named as contribution to the accident, by not adhere to all the duties, citing perhaps unreasonable precedents and/or allege and apply apportionment.

That may lead to significant losses, shortfalls or complete denial/repudiation of a claim.

Not any layman may be qualified to see through all of that and know if all what one faces in terms of reaction or settlement offers, will be fair and correct.

We do believe it is worth taking time and effort to check out on any doubt, before accepting any proposal.





Sometimes bodily injuries occur in a vehicle collision inflicting harm and pain to humans.

Even bodily injuries do have in some way a financial component and a victim need to be compensated in order to cope with recovery and subsequent costs etc.

However - we the author of this Web Platform - RAMLA - do not deal with bodily injuries claims.

Many specialised lawyers offer its services to solve matters pertaining a RAF (Road Accident Fund,) - bodily injury compensation claim, but the South African Government recommend a victim to first check and find out if one can claim without any specialist, in order not to spend a large portion of compensation on Lawyers fees.

Not each and every car accident compensation claim will handled fair, correct and reasonable.





Initially important is, to know the definition of what we have to understand, is 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 into the sector of bodily injuries, which deals with compensation actions regarding injuries to the human body and material damages, such as compensation for car destruction or consequential damages.

The RAMLA web pages, you are browsing currently, only focus on material damage compensation and civil claim actions to be financial/material losses paid for full and fair, resulting from traffic accidents.







In terms of compensation, the South African law say:

You should materially be compensated to the state before accident, so that you will be able to repair your car to pre-collision status, or if repair cost will exceed such pre-collision or market value; and the car be called a write off, be compensated to the amount of money the car been worth to time of impact, minus any sellable value or Salvage of the vehicle.





That means either you cannot expect a new car (some exemptions excluded here i.e. if your motor vehicle new, not older than a year since being on the road the first time, or depreciation kick in, if your car is fairly used and the marks of wear and tear, impacting your auto value to a specific time.

But even an older motor car must be repaired to manufacturer's standards to maintain the roadworthy status, as long as it will not be a write off.

Motor car accident damage claims may get into difficulties, once another party do not agree with what is claimed for.

Differences may be to condition of Quantum/Repair costs or of Liability.

Disputes must be addressed and corroborated by factual evidence, such as witness statements or pictures, CCTV footage or any other suitable evidence.

A successful claim should be supported by merits, so the other party do not have much to argue, but compelled to accept the claim demand and pay.

A claim launched with your own motor insurance company (comprehensive claim), will have to look on what you have covered under your policy, before any acceptance can be decided upon.

Depending on the cover taken, it can be the insured did accept some contribution, such as excess and the claim process need to be according to terms & conditions of the insurance contract.

A 3rd party claim, directed to the perpetrator however, must give you full compensation and no clauses, as insurance excess or any limitations in a insurance policy apply. Only the law of delict will be applicable to decide liability.

Any claim for car accident damage compensation can go wrong, be disputed or even declined.



As soon as in the process of a claim pursuit any disturbance or unusual investigation requests are noticed, it will be highly advisable to check critically, if your own knowledge and skill is sufficient to perform a vehicle crash compensation action your own, or if you should consider practical support by professionals.

Inflated or unjust claims need proper defence against unreasonable vehicle accident compensation actions





Defending against inflated claims isn't as challenging as perhaps thought.



Defence against unrealistic, unjustified or inflated claims is a need to do, if alleged to be held liable for car accident damages, which do not fall in your responsibilities.

It is always an inconvenient situation when defensive actions are needed, as to alleged of wrongdoing, which isn't true or fair.

However any person unfairly accused of wrongdoing and causing damages to another in a motor car collision, must enter into defence, not to risk to be sued and end up innocently be judged against one and subsequently face execution, against all of your property.

It should be noted that a claim against a person, is only dangerous, if not defended properly.

Defensive actions mean, deny a claim and its accusation, simple and clear and request proof of facts and merits.

Only if such evidential facts indeed be supplied and its content suest not to allow challenging the accusation, it will be advisable to look for a compromise or settlement agreement.

It must be known, that a person sue another in a Court of Law, must proof that the allegations are true and fair on a balance of probabilities.

Should such a proof cannot be shown, a case is lost and dismissed with costs and the Defendant is released from any liability or compensation payment.

In order to avoid unnecessary risk and hassle, it is highly recommended to utilise professional support to rebut unfair allegations, not to lose out on reasons of lack of knowledge, how to act against such allegations.

Motor Car accident damage claim against uninsured vehicle drivers - in South Africa (RSA)



uninsured motorist driver/owner

Filing a claim against an uninsured motorist is by no way more difficult as filling one with an Insurer, representing a comparable motorist.

In terms of the law, all claims must be filed at the end, against the liable driver. Insurance companies just indemnify its clients against financial obligations or losses, if covered for it by a policy. In South Africa, most motor insurance companies prefer, even to represent an insured client; in order to best protect its own interests to limit/control payouts, liabilities and damages.

For non insured car drivers, alleged to be liable for damages caused to another, they are sometime even less reluctance and/or resistance be faced with a demand to pay for damages, but perhaps the risk of liquidity to pay, or lack of funds, may be the challenge.

But nothing said generally may apply always, as some rather non prudent drivers - not insured, may have some practical training/experience, how to make it difficult for the Claimant.

Knowing all that, such a non insured - trouble maker - may be brought to a pay as easy or difficult, as it may be with an reluctant motor insurance agent and may often be easier by take advantage of experienced legal experts in the field of car accident compensation, such as RAMLA.

In order achieving fair and reasonable compensation for auto accident damage, some measures and actions must be followed and applied making a compensation action successful, in South Africa







Motor vehicle accidents happens every day on public roads, often causing damages to property

Utilise the affordable professional solutions RAMLA offers clients in South Africa, to solve such repercussions.

 car accident in South Africa





Motorist driving negligent and causing accident damages in traffic incidents, are liable and must pay for damages to other parties, whether insured or not.

Once driving in public traffic on South African Roads, every motorist is in danger to be involved in a car accident. After checking on people involved about injuries and first aid been given, the next focus will be on damages and the question, how came this all about.

In all regularity personal details will be exchanged and questions to insurance and liability discussed.

Finding out the other party, deemed to be liable for the cause of the accident don't have insurance, may not be the most welcome information. But as liability will stay liability, insured or not, a claim will be needed to brought forward and compensation demanded.

   Go direct to the page content selector       

A party liable for car accident damages, must pay the one suffered losses, getting the victim back to the stage his motor vehicle been in before impact, even without having Insurance cover.

It may sometimes be even less problematic to deal with an uninsured driver, as with a reluctant motor insurance claim admin, but as always in real life, there are more and less honest people to deal with.

Claiming for fair motor car accident damage compensation, either from an uninsured motorist, or one who has got proper auto insurance cover, will not always be easy.

One of the more serious challenges with an uninsured car driver, causing the traffic collision, will be if he/she appears to be reluctant and try to avoid contacts, in an attempt not to engage.

Those people, who try to make it hard for the victim to claim, only understand a determined and strong handling, making them aware of the severity of the matter, they are in.

car accident in South Africa RAMLA can help clients in all MVA matters to solve problems professionally, claims, disputes (3rd party / comprehensive Insurance cover), review of declines with the Ombudsman (OSTI) and defensive actions against unreasonable or inflated claims, professional - affordable.    Contact RAMLA for your support to have a damage claim paid or defenced.      Contact     



Claiming from an uninsured car driver is a process to be followed

The matter of a compensation claim action against an uninsured is a process and needs to follow some rules and is always an individual matter, by which the process is dependent on the reaction of the other party.

All starts with the analyses of the true circumstances to identify or reiterate the considered party is indeed the liable party.

You may therefore make use of the free first analyse offer RAMLA is making and supply us with some information how all unfold and if you like attach one or two pictures of the damage, so we have an idea of the problem. RAMLA will reply with an initial advice, free of charge, by email in a reasonable time (from immediate response up to about 3 hours regularly).

Dear valued reader, checking out the RAMLA car accident compensation platform; obviously you do have some traffic accident damage issues to solve.

Contact RAMLA directly for a free check of your particular case issue and advice, by following the link.


Once the question of liabily is looked on, car damages need to be calculated, a claim prepared with evidence and a demand needs to be addressed and served.

But the procedure of a claim cannot be explained in a sentence and in case you look for an individual manual how to proceed, on the RAMLA web pages, we need disappointing you, as to the before mentioned that it is an individual matter, according to the particular case.

One of the most commonly observed obstacles to overcome is, should the liable motorist just play "dead man", meaning not responding to calls, not engaging in solutions and try hampering matters this way.

Once in contact with the party and delivered the claim demands, it is the aim to get the other to accept or find settlement somewhere, in order to avoid an escalation to a court of law, which may be costly and time consuming.

The non-insured party doesn't enjoy some benefits the insured may have, as the motor insurance will offer support or take over a claim, respond to demands or defend, which means dealing with a non-insured may be more amicable, as they don't have as much experience and don't know all the tactics, other's may apply, to make a claimant giving up.

Motor insurance claim handling admins, does have a nice "tool box" filled with, sometimes ridicules arguments and tactics, which can be utilised against an honest claimant to decline or deny the acceptance of a claim, which is less expectable from an uninsured perpetrator.

It can be much easier to get along with an honest uninsured motorist, instead dealing with so called claim negotiators, being paid to decline or drop down (negotiate) pay-outs, for the motor insurance companies, they are employed with.

Suing a party not insured, or finding out that their cover have been declined, due to several possible reasons, and the insurance cover don't pay for motor accident damages, which is equal as driving uninsured, on the South African Roads, means to proof the claim to them and give a time to accept and pay the damages.

Should such timeline be missed without proper engagement, the pressure must be increased in order telling that matters will not just be left alone, but will go to a court of law, with costs and a lot of hassle for them. Some local Attorneys threaten those demanded, unfairly with not applicable measures at that stadium of time, such as a garnishee order, sending the Sheriff and execute or blackmail them for bad credit.

Most of those measures can only be imposed once a court order in that regard has been obtained and a writ of execution been filed and issued.

To our experience, an uninsured motor car driver, professionally and decisively demanded and explained the consequences denying liability, or not being cooperative in search for a solution and compensation of accident damages caused, will probably engage easier in a settlement agreement, more often than not, as facing further legal consequences, which could be disastrous to them.

As an uninsured motorist must pay out of the own pocket and most probably don't have dedicated savings to utilise for such unexpected expenses, may well mean, a claimant need to prepare for instalments, instead being paid once off.

But this compromise may be a good choice, getting all sides to sign a settlement agreement, without a fight in court.

A challenge however can arise, that the uninsured motorist does not have the financial capability to pay. It can make a difference in the pursuit and final result, of a car accident compensation claim, if they don't have funds to pay, or to pay once off.

It will need some experience to either locate assets claimed not to have, but only try and hide them, or to find ways securing a settlement contract and its fulfilment.

An amicable settlement with an uninsured car driver is preferable over a long term dispute

In our view, a proper settlement agreement is preferable over a long term dispute (and we mean a proper settlement agreement).

Such settlement contract should allow for legal action, without much of possible or successful resistance, should the wrongdoer not honour the agreement. It must stipulate the repair costs and damages in detail, as well as time frames and due date for payment, interest applicable and cost of action.

Such a proper settlement, can be achieved by applying the right mixture of demand and commitment onto the perpetrator. However it will be crucial to be formulated comprehensively and proper signed off, best accompanied by a witness to sign as well, or made as an acknowledgement by affidavit.

A claim against an uninsured motorist may need some compromise, if it will be clear that the amount of money for compensation will not be readily available and instalments should be one solution possible. Making sure the instalments will be met, the settlement agreement is paramount.

The professinal but affordable RAMLA claim support is always available, if some backing is needed. Just contact us. We do have several claim support options available, even one just for drawing up such settlement agreement.

As a settlement agreement will be the easiest and most comfortable solution, if the parties engage into it.

Before the conditions for a settlement will be negotiated, if there will be a need to do, it will be good to know about the financial background and what they own, so if there is any disturbance in the pay, relevant measures can be taken and executed against the party.





Having a good settlement agreement, legal action (if needed) can be relatively easy processed and to lower costs, if the settlement contract specific about the relevant details.

Such should pave the way for a liquid claim in a court of law (meaning there is no room for discussion of claim values and possible liability disputes), leaving little space for the other party to argue and delay the process.

A legal action will commonly not even be opposed in court and so give the possibility of easily achieving a default judgement and subsequently a warrant of execution.

But in all regularity a signed settlement contract will rather go through undisturbed than not.

A deemed liable, but uninsured car driver, who refuses to enter in any settlement engagement, must be brought to justice and sued, should the circumstances allow for a successful legal action in a court of law.

The way to claim against an uninsured car driver in RSA

Claiming for motor car accident damage compensation against a not insured motorist is a process, starting with a formal demand.

Generally a third party claim is a claim against another person, entity or business - the 3rd party.

Starting up such claim, you need to get all documents together and must have a damage calculation/assessment done, by either the panel beater or auto body repair workshop or by professional damage assessment.

If the damages are calculated and listed in a quotation or assessment report, you can start to send a demand to the liable party.

The matter and demanded compensation need to be clarified as well as the circumstances and legal aspects of the accident need to be set out, as the reasons why the party will be liable and for what damages to property (vehicle or other damaged items, as poles - signs - walles - fences etc.

Should there be other damages to property additional as to the vehicle, so called consequential damages i.e. towing, storage other damaged items in the car, glassed broken, items stored in the boot etc., must or can be added.

But no claim for bodily (personal) injuries or sentimental damages can be adressed in a material damage compensation process. Bodily insuries to people, need to be adressed seperately to the Road Accident Fund South Africa - RAF.

The demand will need to be served properly to the person/institution/company and a proof of service should be obtained and kept.

All what comes next will be depending on the reaction of the deemed liable party after proper service of the demand. Proof of delivery of the demand is necessary. (slip of a registered letter or email delivery notice)

RAMLA can help clients in all MVA matters to solve problems professionally, claims, disputes (3rd party / comprehensive Insurance cover), review of declines with the Ombudsman (OSTI) and defensive actions against unreasonable or inflated claims, professional - affordable.    Contact RAMLA for your support to have a damage claim paid or defenced.      Contact      car accident in South Africa

Credibility is a factor in the process to decide to take legal action in a court of law, suing an uninsured motorist

Should a claim not being resolved in pre-litigation (all before a court of law is the last instance for a solution), after exhausting all avenues, but falling on fruitless grounds, a claim in a court of law will be the next step, given the evidence is good enough to be successful in court.

Facing the challenge and being in a need to sue an uninsured motorist for damages one must always review the terms of credibility or ability to pay the damages, in order finding out if the accused liable be credible to pay for the damages, once the legal action is finalised, before initiating a probably long term legal action.

Certainly the amount or value of damages to claim for, plays another critical role deciding on actions enforcing damage compensation.

It's hard to determine, whether a small amount of damage is worth to sue for, if there is doubt in the liquidity of the sued party. But holding a motorist liable for the damages caused in a motor accident, will at least be worth demanding compensation, in pre-litigation (all before a court of law must be involved).

Claiming for a smaller amount of damages, utilising the support of a local attorney, may economically not be the best choice, as such fees can easily be equal or even be higher at the end, as the demanded compensation.

As a general economic measure, mandating a local attorney will only be cost effective, if the demand for damages is in the range of R 60,000 or more. Any claim of smaller value, should be pursued more cost effective, for example by utilising the affordable and by far cheaper service of a specialist, such as RAMLA.

Luckily there is a avenue to claim cost effective, for smaller values even in a court of law, as there are the small claims courts established in the country, where claims up to R 15 000 can be heard and pursuit, for very little money and relatively quick.


This opportunity will be always for disposal, if damage values luckily arent as severe and the matter should not just left go.

The challenge utilising the small claims courts is, that a no person cannot be represented by another, and all need represent themselves, so the claimant needs to go and pursuit the matter, based on his own actions and arguments, or evidence.

However even the defendant must represent him/herself in person and must rebut the claimants argument, which won't always be easy and it is very uncomfortable for a defendant be exposed to the court in person, without any support.

Claiming against an uninsured motorist in South Africa may need a more decisive approach, as the compensation to be paid, must be found in the budget or property of the perpetrator.

Unfortunately we all know that lot of people are under financial pressure these days. That can mean one should be open for considerting some compromises, should any such financial constraints are observed, at least in accepting instalments of payment.

A formal demand, addressing the issues, should be filed and served in any case.

car accident in South Africa RAMLA can help clients in all MVA matters to solve problems professionally, claims, disputes (3rd party / comprehensive Insurance cover), review of declines with the Ombudsman (OSTI) and defensive actions against unreasonable or inflated claims, professional - affordable.    Contact RAMLA for your support to have a damage claim paid or defenced.      Contact     
The reaction of the person/company demanded will indicate if an amicable or rather more problematic process can be expected. A motorist, acknowledge being in the wrong, just at the scene of the car accident, must not necessarily stick to the commitment, once being home or confronted with the amount of damages to be paid.

Therefore it's crucial that the matter will be handled carefully and with the appropriate suspicion and not just being trustful in the honesty of person's promises, and risk behaviour change later, meaning the one acknowledge and pledged to be at fault and pay for what is caused, will just get away from the promise and take the opposite position.

Depending on the reaction of the demanded person, either a claim can be handled amicable, meaning a settlement agreement, will be the way forward, or the demand must go on more decisive, which can lead to the need of legal actions, starting with the service of a summons.

Once there will be an opportunity to settle amicably, there are some things that should be done right, in the process of settlement and need some experience to file and get the documents signed properly.

Such settlement agreement should provide the basis one will be able to file for a liquid claim in a court of law, to shorten the process, if unexpectedly the payments stop to flow in.

Next to practical support to help processing your claim, RAMLA offers a Document Service (some fees apply) having the right forms and content on hand. Additionally RAMLA can give you advice, on filing such individual documents or even pursuit your entire claim.

Kindly take note that any practical claim support will not be processed free of charge, but to very reasonable and affordable rates.

If an uninsured liable motor car driver finally don't have funds to pay for damages at all, think twice before spending lot of money in legal court actions

In South Africa, it is common knowledge that some people simply cannot afford, to either pay for car accident 3rd party motor insurance premiums or for damage compensation, if they are the cause for the traffic accident. This will be the worst case scenario.

It will therefore be very advisable to find out about the existence of any kind of car insurance, right at the scene of accident. If there is no such cover, you should find out if the liable one is the owner of the car or if the driver was in due course of employment.

The aim should be, to find another person to be held additionally liable, who may be financially strong enough to pay, next to the uninsured car driver, minimising the risk of non-payment for car accident damages.

The situation that all motorists are exposed to such risks, being involved with an uninsured car driver, in a traffic accident is unsatisfactory. The law should be amended, to make 3rd party auto insurance obligatory, before a car registration can take place and do not allow any uninsured car to take part in public traffic. The law should also require that the premiums are paid to date, when participating in road traffic.

car accident in South Africa car accident in South Africa car accident in South Africa car accident in South Africa

However it must be reasonably suspected, the liable party might not be able to pay for the motor vehicle damage caused simply to lack of funds, which will be very disappointing. But unfortunately, in such circumstances the best judgment in your favour, cannot satisfy your claim and you will be left alone and pay for your damage and the cost for the claim.

Therefore it should be a priority to check the financial background of the adversary. It can be done personally, as i.e. check about employment, assets etc. A good measure is visiting the home of the culprit and asks the neighbours, as the Investigators do. Appointing an Investigator to do so will be even proper and don't be as expensive as some think.

But just to dropping a case, while only suspecting, but don't know about the financial background of the party to sue, should only be the very last possibility, to choose.



As mentioned before, it will be advisable not to spend too much in legal fees, but instead find the best service for the most affordable rates, to get the matter going, if you suspect lack of financial strength. RAMLA service is affordable and decisive; check us out, before dropping a case.

If you can foresee that no payment can be enforced at the end, swallow the bitter pill.

But as mentioned before, it does not mean to forget about any claim. Just take the right way to claim and you have a good chance to receive your money, even if only some times later.

If you valued visitor of the RAMLA web information platform, do have any such problems listed above, you may well be good advised to contact us and brief us - best by email - with what had happened and may be your problem.

Our initial reply and advice will be free of any charges or obligations,

but an active pursuit of a claim or defence will come with some smaller fees.





















 

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 or the Insurer, the other party repudiate, apportioning damage liability leading to a short falling compensation offer, or any other claim decline, such as to violation of Insurance terms and conditions. All need experienced attention.

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.

Motor Insurance Disputes



An insurance claim, either as a third party or comprehensive claim can come with a number of challenges.

Having the knowledge and experience, is a prerequisite to stand through against sometimes very strange arguments or decisions utilised by South African Motor Insurance Companies or its Brokers.





 

Ombudsman for short term Insurance (OSTI)



The Ombudsman for short term insurance disputes (OSTI) reviews matters that emanates from Insurance policy differences or disputes.

That means only contractual issues can be given for review and no 3rd party claims issues can be addressed to the Ombudsman.

Many people believe in objectivity and sympathies the Ombudsman may have to issues, believed to have been made unfairly by any Insurance decider.

It must however not always be expected that OSTI is in favour of Insurance clients to protect their rights.

Too often the decisions taken by the Ombudsman's office are backing the Insurance decision, particularly so as the evidence provided hasn't rebutted the Insurers argument, due to lack of knowledge.

The often one-sided information provided by the Insurer, even without verification, is taken for the decision, if a client in need for help doesn't know how to repudiate false or weak allegations and the matter will most probably be lost and the Insurer rests relaxed.

The Institution of the OSTI office is financed by the Insurance Industry.




 

A reluctant party try to hide and not engage?

Don't allow a party to act in such manner. A liable driver must take responsibility, but it can be a challenge if you have been too patient or trustful of promises and the other do know how to make you struggle.

It must be noted that a claim is easier declined than proven, and factual proof is what is meant the claimant has the onus of proof.





 

Companies don't engaging into claims they are vicariously liable for its employees

Companies are in some circumstances responsible and vicariously liable for employee's action and damages, if in charge for the business.

Despite most such companies may maintain a valid insurance cover, not many are open to an amicable solution and reluctant to support a claim.

The problem may just be that those who employ personal which need take part in public traffic in order to do the job get too much involved in car accidents throughout the employee's mistakes and don't like seeing the insurance cover in danger or face higher risk premiums.

There are commonly more difficulties to get matters processed as if claiming against a private person.

Our advice, get support as soon you feel something may not go as expected.





 

Alcohol or drugs a driver has abused but driving a car under the influence and causing the accident

Alcohol or Drugs shouldn't be consumed when on the road, for good reasons, and prohibited by law.

Once alcohol or drugs are suspected or proven, any insurance cover will lapse and no compensation can be expected covered by any Insurance.

However, the misuse of drugs and or alcohol must be proven in a professional manner.

It will not be acceptable, if an Insurer or another party just allege the other being intoxicated.

No witness or any observer can detect any or the degree of intoxication, even if they are medics, without scientific analyses, there is no proof.

Breathalyser and professional medical laboratory tests must show if any intoxication and to what degree, to get a claim declined or even to make one against another.





 

Market value, trade and retail value, scrap or salvage are all part in a "write off" case

When it comes to more serious car accident damages often repair costs are high. Should repair costs exceed the market or pre-collision value of the motor car, it will be called a "write off".

Unfortunately many of those been written off is caused by a decision of an Insurer.

The manner in which the car values of a highly damaged vehicle being evaluated, is by applying value schemes, often inappropriate schemes or wrong assessment results should be challenged.

A write off can cause many hassles in some regards.

There are some value schemes offering private persons a one time free value check.
