Cases for damages in a variety of fields are being heard in courts on an increasingly frequent basis. Individuals are starting to stand up to lay damages claims against companies, organisations, the state or other individuals. There are many different kinds of damages claims that can be laid, and each one comes with its own set of legal challenges.
There has been a significant rise in the number of medical negligence claims and cases in recent years. As patients become more aware of their rights, doctors and surgeons are increasingly facing challenges from patients whose procedures or treatments were not entirely successful. Conversely, medical professionals are ever more in need of legal protection when it comes to facing challenges from their patients.
Vehicle accident claims are also very common throughout South Africa, considering the high rate of casualties and injuries on the nation’s roads. Claims against other road users, the state and the Road Accident Fund can result in lengthy court battles.
