Personal Injury Law

  • In our last blog we gave you all guidelines on what to do after you are involved in a motor car accident. We stress that it is always advisable for you to seek prompt, proper and professional legal advice and also to secure reliable legal services when dealing with this and any other type of factual and legal dispute. It is always advisable to be aware fully of all your legal rights in any given circumstances.

    Today we answer some questions that are often asked by our clients.

  • If you have been injured in an accident; whether it is a motor vehicle accident or some other type of accident; you may well have a civil claim for damages.

    This claim could be against the driver of the other vehicle or his/her third party insurer, in the case of a motor car accident.

    In other circumstances; you could have a claim for injuries sustained by you against the person who caused those injuries through their negligent or intentional actions.

    Simply to say that the allegation you make is the truth is NOT Enough.

    In a defamation action between two parties where the one (A) has defamed the other (B); the defending party (A) can raise the defence of TRUTH ie “what I said was the truth.”

    This does NOT necessarily apply to social media defamation.

     Let us take an example:

    Perhaps you are engaged in a bitter dispute. Perhaps it’s a fight over money, a business venture gone awry, a family feud, or a messy divorce, a disaffected employee, or perhaps a vengeful neighbour.

     You decide to resort to Social Media “to tell the truth” about your nemesis. You feel totally safe doing so – after all, our Constitution protects our rights to free speech, the Internet is a bastion of Freedom of Information, nothing said online is “real”, and anyway who can object to you telling the truth? Wrong!
