  • How to claim for pothole damage to your car

    Are you sick and tired of expensive damages caused by potholes? If you answered yes, you have got to read this article on how to claim for pothole damage to your car! Yes you read that correctly. You can actually claim damages caused by potholes! if they meet certain requirements, of course. Motorists have become accustomed to the rigours of replacing tyres due to potholes but there is a way to circumvent the cost of new tyres. Not only are your tyres being damaged, but your vehicle’s rims can too, which leads to a whole host of other problems. Les McMaster, chairperson of the Motor Industry Workshop Association (MIWA), says rim damage can often lead to vehicle alignment and suspension problems. Craig Courtney-Leaver, CEO of alloy rim repair specialists, Wheel Collision, said, “If one feels a vibration in the steering wheel, the chances are one of the front rims are damaged and if one feels the vibration on the seat, then it is usually a rear rim.” So, what happens when you have replaced a burst or damaged tyre? Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) spokesperson Bertha Peters-Scheepers said, “The public may lodge a claim with the JRA’s Legal Department for alleged damages suffered due to road and/or infrastructure (such as manhole or kerb inlet) that the JRA as a municipal-owned entity of the City of Johannesburg is mandated to maintain.” There are a couple of procedures that have to be followed in order to claim. In addition to completing the claim form, attach the following documents: Police affidavit Copy of driver’s license of the claimant (in case of vehicle damage) Vehicle registration documents (in case of vehicle damage) Copy of ID Photos of the damage to the car (in case of vehicle damage) Three quotations or invoice/proof of payment Letter from insurance company confirming that the claim was not logged to own insurance Doctor’s report if there is personal injury JRA recommends that you either email or fax the documents. Doing both only delays the process. Peters-Scheepers added, “It is important [for readers to be aware] that the claims process does take time as we work with both our insurance brokers and insurers in the processing of claims.” Each claim is assessed on its merits and in accordance with our public liability policy which means not all claims will be successfully paid out. For additional information please contact JRA directly on: hotline@jra.org.za or 086 056 2874….

  • Dealing with car accidents

    If you read one thing today, make it this article! Here is your step-by-step guide to dealing with car accidents. From bumper bashings to 10 car pile-ups on the highway, car accidents are an everyday occurrence on South African roads. If the worst happened and you were involved in a car accident would you know what to do at the accident scene? Keep reading to learn what to do. Step 1: Stop and call for help Stop, switch on your hazards to warn other vehicles and climb out of your car if it is safe to do so. Call an ambulance and the police if passengers, drivers or pedestrians are injured. Note: You are required by law to stop your vehicle if you are involved in an accident and commuters and pedestrians are injured or killed or property is damaged. Failing to stop is considered a criminal offence. You can also be criminally charged for failing to help someone who has been hurt in an accident you are involved in, even if the accident was not your fault. Remember, however, that as much as you want to help injured people you should not administer first aid unless you are qualified to do so. Step 2: Clear the road  Move any cars that are obstructing the flow of traffic, but be sure to mark their position on the road first with chalk or spray paint if available, or to photograph the scene before the cars are moved. Note: If a person or animal has been injured in the accident do not interfere with the evidence or move any vehicles unless those vehicles are obstructing the traffic completely. Step 3: Assess the damage For insurance purposes take photos of the accident from as many different angles as possible. Take close-up photos of any damage to your car and any other cars involved. Step 4: Questions and answers Take down the following information from all other drivers involved in the accident as well as from people who witnessed the accident: Full names and surnames ID numbers Home, cell and business phone numbers Physical addresses E-mail addresses Vehicle registration Description of the vehicles (make, model and colour) Names and contact details of the police officials, paramedics and tow truck drivers Your location: street name and suburb The time of the accident Road conditions and visibility Remember to also take note of what happened immediately…
