DEBT REVIEW REMOVAL
Time and again, we receive queries and instructions from credit consumers who want to exit the Debt Review process. Of course, exceptions are due to personal circumstances, but in most cases, we have discovered two reasons why people want to exit debt review earlier than the due time:
First and most eminent, it comes as a rude awakening to most people soon after being under debt review that they can no longer access credit. In some instances, consumers are not made fully aware of the consequences of going under debt review.
ROAD ACCIDENT FUND CLAIMS
The Road Accident Fund (RAF) refers to a statutory body that that exists to provide cover to all persons within the borders of South Africa in respect of any loss or damage resulting from the negligent death or bodily injury caused by the negligent driver of a motor vehicle. Where a breadwinner has passed away due to a motor vehicle accident, the dependants are entitled to also claim in respect of loss of support and funeral expenses.
Most people have neighbours and usually the relationship is friendly and amicable. Unfortunately, some frictions are unavoidable due to irrational and erratic behaviour from a neighbour. Let our expert litigation attorneys assist to calm down an explosive situation to an amicable situation through skilful negotiation and/or litigation.
MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS
Medical Negligence refers to an unforeseen negative consequence of medical treatment that could have been avoided by a medical practitioner. South African medical law stipulates that the injury suffered must be due to the direct result of the medical practitioner’s actions or lack thereof. In the case where the medical practitioner followed the correct procedure and the patient suffered from unfavourable consequences, medical negligence cannot be claimed.
An eviction occurs when a person is legally forced to leave the property they are staying in. Section 26(3) of the Constitution of South Africa states that:
“No one may be evicted from their home, or have their home demolished without an order of court made after considering all the relevant circumstances and that no legislation may permit arbitrary evictions.”
VEHICLE ACCIDENT CLAIM
There are many risks involved in driving motor vehicles and each motor vehicle accident has its own unique set of facts and surrounding circumstances. Some of the risks involved in driving a motor vehicle are injuries to drivers, the passengers in the vehicles, pedestrians, as well as the risk of damage to the vehicles and/or belongings inside the vehicles.
POWER OF ATTORNEY
A Power of Attorney is a legal document, whereby a principal (person giving the authority to act on his/her behalf) gives authority to an agent (person acting on behalf of the principal) to act on his/her behalf. The Power of Attorney will set out the nature and scope of the agent’s powers to act on behalf of the principal, including but not limited to signing of legal documents, entering into contracts, opening and closing bank accounts, selling or purchasing property and instituting legal action.
