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.

One of the main obstacles in a vehicle accident damage compensation claim obviously will be the matter of possible disputes.

Talking about the law, regarding solving differences that accrues from material car accident damages, the source is the common law of South Africa, the applicable traffic legislation and the developed schemes applied in a court of law over time, solving civil differences.

Additionally there is the National Traffic Act, 1996 stipulating some essentials applicable to motor car accidents occured in public traffic.

The initial obligations burden on any motorists if involved in a traffic accident on public roads are outlined in the National Traffic Act, 1996 at section 61. (1) - Source Government of South Africa.

This section tells you what the participants at least have to do when ever tangled by a car accident, as to report the accident, exchange personal data etc.

When does it make sense claiming for motor car damage compensation?

1. To all times, if it's regarded as a principle, not let getting the perpetrator away who harms another, without consequences. This implies the question of economic matters is secondary to the principle.

2. If a claim exceed a certain amount in relation to cost for demand and pursuit of the matter and the claimant will not be able doing it in own capacity, but prepared spending a smaller portion of compensation, which may be lost entirely, if no action will be taken.

In figures it may imply that no claim for car accident damages, less than for the compensation of R 10 000.00 will vindicate any external claim support, coming with costs. A claim below R 18 000.00 can be directed to the small claims courts, which proceeds matters relatively quick and very affordable, but need the participation of the claimant.

A claim higher than the threshold for the small claims court, above R 20 000.00 very well deserves an enforcement, at least before matters eventually needs to be taken to a court of law.

Any damages higher than R 60 000.00 or any shortfall in motor insurance offers in this range, should be taken on, to all times.

Vicarious Liability - a liability imposed by law on another not directly involved in an issue, here a car accident, such as Employers or Motor Car Owner's must be analysed


A motor vehicle owner does have a number of liabilities and responsibilities for the registered motor car, once on South African roads.

The responsibly can go as far, as a car owner can be held liable in certain circumstances, even not driving or being a passenger, just out of the fact he owns the motor vehicle.

Anyhow, this field of liability - called vicarious liability - a duty or responsibility imposed on someone, without actual participation, by South African law, is a more complicated matter.

Prerequisites however will be, that car owner give permission to someone driving the motor car and doing something, the car owner may directly benefit from. It can be just be a favour, i.e. driving the motor car on his behalf, or even in business duty etc.

Furthermore the car owner must have violated the duty of control, once being able doing so.

The vehicle owner even does have responsibilities, such as the motor car is roadworthy.

Headlines and Issues on this page



The definition of vicarious liability is the liability imposed onto another, not directly, but indirectly involved in a matter.

The definition of vicarious liability is the liability of a person, for the wrongdoing of another, causing a car accident and damages to others.

Such vicarious liability arises from a relationship, between the negligent car driver and the car owner (person held liable), for the wrongdoing of another and exists independently out of a relationship to the party suffered losses and the car owner, or any personal fault, direct or indirect, on the part of the car owner.

Establishing vicarious liability it must be proven:

An employer and employed relationship between both of them. A real subcontractor causing damages or harm to others, in charge for the contractor, the contractor cannot be held liable for an independent operating subcontractor, different to the liability for an employed in performance of the duty.

It must further be proven; the employed is at fault for the causation, in the course and duty of the employment.

Once an employer claims the deemed employed will not be its employed but an independent subcontractor, caution and vigilance is needed and the true relationship investigated. There are certain criteria that an independent subcontractor must fulfil, eventually being accepted as such.

Car Owners duty maintaining the vehicle roadworthy

A motor vehicle, taking part in public South African traffic, must be roadworthy at all times.

It is the sole responsibility of the motor car owner, having the car maintained and functioning in a roadworthy condition, before the vehicle get into public traffic.

It cannot be relied on the initial roadworthy test before the car registration.

A driver, not the owner of the motor vehicle, should make an inspection of critical functions, as lights, breaks, tyres etc. before taking the car onto the road. Unfortunately this important task is not given the attention as it should be, to the safety of all motorists; especially one takes a car from another, not personally knowing the status of maintenance.

Just defect lights, not functioning indicators etc., can become a factor of negligence in a traffic accident.

If a traffic accident will be caused, not just by negligent driving, but by reasons of technical faults, the car owner always faces liability, even if he had not driven the vehicle, but allowed another to do so, provided it can be proven the owner of the car knew about the failure, or must have reasonable had notice of it.

A vehicle owner can only be discharged from liability, deriving from poor or dilapidated state and technical standard and therefore been regarded as not-roadworthy, once he/she can proof the motor car has taken to the road, without his consent.

Liability of car owners for negligent remunerated driver

Motorists taking part in public traffic and getting a salary, pay or other forms of remuneration, for the purpose of driving the motor car, it must be suspected that the reason for driving will be, in performing for the owner or acting under his/her instructions.

This form of performance can apply in a private mission or in terms of business, and must not necessarily constitute regular employment at all.

This simply means the car driver is in charge or performs for the vehicle owner and gets a pay for the service.

A situation a paid car driver causes harm or damages to others, creates the possibility the car owner being vicariously liable, for actions performed in his order or for his benefit, and he can be held jointly and several liable, for any negligence in driving his/her motor car.

In a case of vicarious liability, the motor car owner is liable not because of his/her own negligence, but because of the special relationship between the car owner and the car driver.

Both the driver and the owner can be sued for compensation, emanating from acts or negligent behaviour in public spaces, caused by the driver on duty.

Once a remuneration or pay, in which form ever, can be proven, the car owner cannot easily claim not have authorised or allowed the car driver utilising the car or deny that the vehicle driver has acted on his request.

Remember, a vehicle owner can only get away from such form of liability, if he can proof not paying him at all, not being part in any deal, or the motor car has not been taken illegally, without his/her consent, or solemnly utilised for private or other purposes, explicit for the drivers own purposes and not about business or favours, between the car owner and driver.

If you are involved in a car accident Involved in a car accident in South Africa Involved in a car accident in South Africa and

Negligent unremunerated driver and liability of car owners

Even a not paid car driver, consented utilised another car owner's vehicle, can under some circumstance create vicarious liability for the car owner.

In a case, confronted with a negligent driven car by another, that did cause a traffic collision and the driver not being the vehicle owner and even not remunerated, or getting a pay or other benefits, from the motor car owner, for any services rendered in the course or for the purpose of the driving, but utilising the supplied motor car to fulfil an order, or obligations taken from the car owner, or for other benefits in favour for him, can even lead to a liability of the vehicle owner, to pay for damages caused by the other in the car accident .

The two different aspects to look on here are:

Have the car owner been a passenger in the car during the drive, causes the traffic accident or not.

This short article, is dedicated to the fact the car owner has not been a passenger to the time of the negligent impact.

The challenge to establish liability to the car owner will be, if it can be proven, that the unremunerated car driver has taken the car with consent of the owner and that a special relationship has been created.

The special relationship must be to the benefit of the car owner, even if those benefits may be immaterial, such as the car driver was in charge of any orders from, or created favours for the benefit, of the car owner .e. fetching his child from school and get it home, even if the driver did some own business, next to the favour.

Benefit must not only be seen as a material benefit, it rather includes social benefits as well.

Unfortunately this situation, where the car owner is not a passenger and a special relationship based on any services performed by the driver, without being paid for such services, will be challenging and needs evidence proof to create any liabilities for the car owner.

The car owner as passenger in the vehicle and the possibility of liability for damages the negligent driver causes.

A situation that a vehicle owner takes the passenger seat and not gets behind the steering wheel is not an infrequent one.

Once the car owner is a passenger, the question of the rightful and consented use or driving of the motor car by another, must be seen as factually proven. There will be little or no room for the argument, the driver has taken the motor car without consent of the car owner.

A vehicle owner has the right to control the way his motor car will be driven.

Especially if the car owner is a passenger in the vehicle during the motor accident, caused by negligent driving of his chauffeur, he had the right and the obligation to interfere and stop the driver being negligent.

The car owner cannot be held liable for damages caused by the negligent; on the basis that the vehicle owner has attributed to the possibility of a car accident, as to the failure the owner passenger hasn't exercised proper control over the vehicle and its driver.

But an owner passenger can be held personally liable, once harm to others will be foreseeable, resulting from the manner the motor car is driven and failed exercising his rights controlling, stopping the driver continuing with dangerous manoeuvres, speeding, drunk driving etc.

If the car owner on the passenger seat, could or should have been aware of negligent driving, such as speeding or intoxication or factors that interferes into the car drivers abilities of safe driving, and then has not exercises proper control and permitting the other continue driving the improper way that can foreseeable harm others, will be liable for compensation of such harm and/or damages.

Welcome to RAMLA








 

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.

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.

Lot of those issues may not be according to valid law, and just a reaction of someone in charge don't care, not having the necessary skills or just follow a strategy to get rid of valid claims, should not be accepted.

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. It should not be the correct way and get a claimant 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 claim, if it isn't as clear what the implications are and what evidence the other party/Insurance do have, are very good to stand through, even if a summons may be served.

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 it not be so in the first place, we do all we can to improve 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.

But telling the truth, chances of success are entirely based on facts and evidence in every particular case and there cannot be any guarantee being better as proof and evidence.









 

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, 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 other 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 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 that will please most of those with an open mind to new technologies 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.









 

Should you have been through all the 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
