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.
