Highest Whiplash Settlement
The law in South Africa changed in 2008 with regards to claiming from the Road Accident Fund (RAF). Under the new law, it has become increasingly difficult for injured persons to claim and be successful in terms of a monetary payout when they have been involved in a motor vehicle accident. de Broglio Attorneys Inc. specialise in these types of claims and provide top, expert advice on the possibility and success of a claim to those who contact them.
Claiming Directly from the RAF means a Lower Payout
The Road Accident Fund (RAF) is notorious for professing that attorneys will overcharge you if you use them to help you in claiming from the RAF. What they don’t tell you is that they do not want the expertise of an attorney involved because that would mean they would need to pay you what your claim is worth, instead of paying you as little as possible. They want you to try to do it alone so that they can rely on your ignorance and offer you much less than what your claim is worth. This has happened over and over again and the fact is, that even after the legal fees have been deducted from your payout, you will still get more out of your claim if you use a reputable attorney than if you go directly to the RAF and try to make a claim by yourself as happened with one of de Broglio’s clients below.
Complication Leads to Loss of Eye-Sight
