R2,145,959.00 Settlement Provides Glimmer of Hope

updated: 31-Jul-17

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. is a prestigious law firm based in Gauteng with significant specialist expertise and professional experience in Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims. With clients from every corner of South Africa, de Broglio Attorneys Inc. has built up a large client base with a track record of excellent settlements in RAF cases. This dedicated law firm constantly pushes the boundaries for superb client services and high settlements, making it one of the most sought out law firms in the country. 

In a recent case de Broglio Attorneys Inc. represented Marietjie van Deventer* in a RAF claim where she lost her fiancé in a motor vehicle accident that happened in Pretoria. Another motor vehicle exited a garage when it was not safe to do so and collided with her fiancé as he had proceeded along his right of way. He passed away in hospital 3 days later after succumbing to his injuries. 

Marietjie had been financially dependent on her fiancé and had heard about the possibility of claiming from the RAF for loss of support. She didn’t know who to ask for help until her daughter advised her to contact de Broglio Attorneys Inc. after seeing one of their television adverts. Marietjie said, “My daughter told me about a TV advertisement and I phoned de Broglio.”

She was delighted with how de Broglio Attorneys Inc. handled her RAF claim and said, “It was really professionally handled. I feel like I have some hope for the future.” De Broglio Attorneys Inc. strive to keep their clients well-informed about their RAF cases and send out updates at least every 2 weeks. 

Her attorney, advocate and the investigating police officer accompanied her to the North Gauteng High Court on the day of her trial. The attorney for the RAF requested her matter be stood down but her legal team refused their request and fought for her claim to be settled. It was then settled for the outstanding amount of R2,145,959.00. Marietjie reported to be highly pleased with her settlement when she said, “I thought it was a good offer. I am very happy with the settlement. It is really great! “Ek is tevrede met die behandeling wat julle vir my gegee het en vir die toekoms.”
