Hi VegaWelcome to Just Answer!! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you.
Just to confirm that you are not insured yourself?
That is correct.
The third party insurers will have to pay for all the costs. There is no legal justification for them not to pay it and this forms part of the damages you suffered. In my view you will have to advise them that you will be claiming for everything and they need to be advised that until such time they settle they are incurring huge costs.
You will have to however get a lawyer involved and due to the lack of funds you should try and see whether the legal aid board will assist. They can be con tacted on www.legal-aid.co.za
You can also try your local legal aid clinic for assistance if there is one in the vicinity.
