Don’t Fall Victim to Touting!

updated: 29-Oct-17

R2,362,332.00 was recently awarded to a road accident victim when de Broglio Attorneys Inc. successfully settled his claim in the high court. He had been approached by numerous other law firms, attorneys and “RAF representatives” who tried to make him sign up with them but luckily he was wiser and realized that he needed a professional team on his side. This is when he approached de Broglio Attorneys Inc. for help with a claim against the Road Accident Fund (RAF). 

Peter Josef* appointed de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to represent him in his RAF claim, “When I was in the hospital a bunch of people approached me to try do the RAF claim for me. There are normally people in the hospital who do third party claims. My friend said I shouldn’t do it with them as it can be a scam. My friend saw an advert on DSTV and said I should use you guys. I followed his advice. We made an appointment. We went through to the offices about a month after the accident. I was still in a pretty bad shape and that is when you guys took the case.” 

Peter had experienced a “broken right hand, fractured bottom right leg, broken top right leg. This resulted in loss of length of my leg. I am wearing support in my shoes now.” 

He didn’t know about the RAF and didn’t know the people in the hospitals were not experts. He commented, “I was in hospital for about 6 weeks and it took me about 2 years to recover. I still have difficulty with some things. It seems like I have permanent problems now. People see many agents in hospital who offer road accident fund claims. I didn’t know what a RAF claim was. I thought I was going to sue the man who drove into me. I almost got caught out.” 

 “I would definitely recommend de Broglio Attorneys. They are very professional. I believe they have the best doctors to do the assessments. They get better results than anyone else. Even though the claim takes long to pay out, that is not their fault. I managed to speak to other people involved in an accident who used other attorneys and they have been waiting since 2010 just for a court date. I managed to go to court in 2015 and get a pay-out in 2016 already. I was wondering how I managed to be so lucky. I told them about de Broglio attorneys. I am very fortunate. I would recommend de Broglio Attorneys to anybody else,” reported Peter. 

Peter’s RAF claim was settled for R2,362,332.00 in the North Gauteng High Court. He said, “I’m very happy with that settlement. If I handle the money with care, it should be able to last me some time. I must just handle the money carefully. I don’t think anyone would be able to get a better claim than they could get me.”
