Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney
The motor vehicle accident attorney will assist an individual who is involved in an accident that was not their fault. For example, a passenger in a vehicle. Or where an accident occurred as a result of drunk driving, speeding, or exceeding the speed limit. If an injury was incurred as a result of such an accident, a motor vehicle accident attorney will assist you in a claims case for compensation from the Road Accident Fund. Where an injury is not relevant, but rather damages to a vehicle as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault, an attorney will assist you in a claims case for compensation either from the guilty party directly or from insurance. Anyone who wishes to take legal action in these instances, has three years to do so. If after three years you wish to take legal action, the accused party may be defended. Claims cases have time restrictions in South Africa.
