RAF Vanquished in R5,995,031.00 Claim

updated: 11-Dec-18

The roads in South Africa are not safe for pedestrians as a young client of de Broglio Attorneys tragically discovered when she was hit by a taxi on a pavement. de Broglio Attorneys are here to help all of their clients submit, process and successfully settle their claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF). This legal powerhouse has been litigating against the RAF for over 22 years and have accumulated invaluable knowledge, expertize and skills in winning their cases time and again. They have defeated the RAF in their numerous court battles against each other and have proven to be the top law firm in RAF claims.  

In this latest settlement, a minor child was the victim in the case against the RAF. Thelma Buthelezi* was a young girl walking along a pavement on her way to school when a passing taxi lost control and collided with her. She had no chance to protect herself from the collision and suffered very serious injuries as a result of it.  

Her parents were distraught about what had happened to their daughter and wanted to find out if there was anything they could do about it. Her father heard about de Broglio Attorneys at his place of employment. Thelma explained, “It was my father that got a number from a man at his work. We took the business card and came straight to the office and a consultant helped me straight away.” 

Thelma and her family are so grateful for using de Broglio Attorneys. She commented on their service, “WOW! 100% perfect service! If I ever meet someone with a problem I will ask them to go to de Broglio straight away. Everything was 100%. Even if we don’t have money to attend the appointments they always make a plan for the transport to get us there.” 

Her claim proceeded to the South Gauteng High Court where it was settled for the outstanding amount of R5,995,031.00. She was overwhelmed with the settlement that had been secured for her and exclaimed, “I am happy! I am happy! I am excited, really! It is more than I expected. I will recommend them a lot. I want to finish my studies and change my life now.”
