1. based on what have been at hand for determination, RAMLA think where are the liabilities, and who will be generally liable for which damages resulting from the impact.

2. which steps should be taken initially, i.e. in disputes with insurance companies or if a letter of demand must be formulated and directed to the deemed liable party or what you can do finding the party/person that haven't identified itself at the scene of the incident, and much more, which is certainly depending on your individual case.

What is needed to have a strong case and win a car accident damage claim?

A good accident documentation will need having, photographs best those of the scene of accident, showing the situation right after the impact, if the involved cars still in the place they came to still stand.

It should be looked out for witnesses and the contact details taken. Own notes will be very helpful and one should not rely on a police accident report only.

The damages should be photographed as good as possible and proper repair quotation, listing all needs to repair is at hand.

To win and being successful, with a claim for car accident damage compensation, it should be understood that is not a magic thing being awarded for what is fair and full. A strong case but must be based on facts that will have proof.

If you mandate RAMLA to handle your compensation claim, RAMLA supports you by advising what information's and details must be assembled to build up necessary proof and evidence. This must be understood that you - the party involved - must support RAMLA claim management actively, if your documentation is lacking and not suitable to proof your merits jet.

RAMLA often observe that victims looking for compensation just gathered some data, relate those to RAMLA and do think all works from alone now. Unfortunately this is not the case. The time when all works on RAMLA based actions and do not need your direct involvement, will be when the claim basis - proof and evidence - had been established.

All then can be managed by your RAMLA claim manager to demand and pursue you case including the initiation of legal actions, depending on the mandate you may give to us.

No claim has any chance of success when the merits cannot be proven.

When you missed out to do proper accident documentation RAMLA will support you in some ways to improve such, but needs your active support.

If i.e. you not even have the details of the deemed responsible driver, RAMLA will advise you what could be done to find out the true details.

If you missed out to have witness statements or other documentary proof, but you got at least some contact details, they should be provided with affidavits to be signed, so they have a low key impact of participation, and the RAMLA claim management can build on that, to take your motor car accident compensation claim a step further.

Given the proposed witness are willing to sign affidavits to your favour, RAMLA will draft such and depending on circumstances directly deal with them or need your physical support to approach those people, presenting the documents to get it signed properly.

You should keep in mind that those affidavits may be your only evidence and so far should be drafted with care and include the full circumstances of the accident.

Submit your accident documentation for initial review by RAMLA claim service, and receive comments and recommendations, absolutely free.

What you need to have proper . . . car accident documentation!

  Car accidents comes with hassles    Damage assessment cornerstone of proof    Tmotor vehicle damage in South Africa

RAMLA will assist you to determine your position and give a feedback to you if you submit your car accident documentation to us, without any cost or obligations, absolutely free of charge!


What you further need to have good car accident documentation is the assessment/listing of the damage

Another crucial part of needed documentation is the proof of damage happened to your motor car. It is essential that you make sure your repair quotation is fair and complete. Be aware that most insurance companies will send a vehicle assessor to check the damages and provide the company with a report.

Additional and detailed photographs will be a good measure to provide and secure evidence about the car damage.

In closing we like to emphasise, that a claim is as good as your evidence. If you do not see any chance to get your evidence improved to a strong level, you should probably forget about any claim, as a claim without proof will only waste time and money without a chance of success.

Positively spoken if your car accident documentation is build on a reliable basis, it has realistic chances to be won, even in a court battle.
