Personal & Public Liability
Including Medical Negligence
There are many different types of personal injury claims that we can assist you with.
To name but a few: defamation; should you slip/trip and fall and hurt yourself in a public area or building; dog bite; shooting incidents; any damage or injury caused to your body or mind by another person.
There is a duty in South Africa of care that organisations owe to the general public. This duty extends from the highest rungs of governmental organisations, including the police force and local authorities to train stations, shopping centres and amusement parks.
Should any organisation’s failure to ensure a safe environment for the public result in injuries being sustained by individuals, we will be able to advise you of the correct action, if any, to take.
Our firm has many years’ experience in various personal injury claims and we are able to give you advice quickly and efficiently and at no initial cost to yourself, as to the extent of your claim and the viability and cost implications of proceeding with a claim.
Family Law & Divorce
The decision to proceed with a divorce can be the most traumatic decision in any family’s life, not only for the spouses but also for the children. We advise and assist in divorce proceedings to ensure that the best interests of the children are protected and the communal assets are divided correctly according to the matrimonial property system, which was chosen upon entering the marriage.
The recent establishment of the Central Divorce Courts have ensured easier access for the public to courts and allow simpler and more expeditious divorces. We assist in the negotiations between the parties and drafting settlement agreements to ensure that long, drawn out trials are avoided.
When wrapped up in the excitement of planning a beautiful wedding and the future together, it is safe to assume that legal matters such as a marriage contract will not exactly be your top priority. Couples are often reluctant to discuss the issue of an antenuptial contract (ANC) because they fear that talking about the possibility of divorce even before the marriage will spoil the air of romance and love.
But it is in the best interest of both intended spouses to discuss this issue timeously to ensure that they both get what they want as far as their collective financial future is concerned. The contract serves to clarify, formalise and give legal force to the intentions of the couple.
In order to ensure that your contract is drawn up and registered with the Deeds Office before your wedding date, it is important that you and your fiancée consult an attorney at least three months before the wedding date.
Wills & Deceased Estates
When you consult an attorney about an ANC, it would be a very good idea to also discuss the issue of a Will. Chances are you will want to rethink your existing Will or, you do not have one at that stage, draft a Will that will properly protect and provide for your spouse and family at the time of your death.
The attorneys at Hough Bremner Inc. have the necessary specialist knowledge and expertise to ensure that your Will is valid and complies with your wishes, and ensures that the administration of your estate is hassle free. Our firm has a deceased estates department that has been established over many years and specialises in Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning, Administration of Estates and many more services.
