Amputee awarded amazing R2, 289, 693.00

Isaiah Kendall* was driving his motorcycle on the N1 when a motor vehicle from the opposite direction slowed down to turn right, but appeared to not have seen Isaiah and instead of waiting for him to pass first, the vehicle turned in front of him and they collided. The impact was on Isaiah’s right hand side. He sustained multiple fractures to his body and his vision was temporarily impaired. 

de Broglio Inc handle RAF claims like this on a daily basis. They have been suing the RAF for over 20 years and have gained invaluable experience and expertise in this field of law. Isaiah’s case was one they believed they would be successful in and so began the proceedings involved in litigating against the RAF. 

Isaiah suffered multiple injuries because of the accident including the amputation of his right index finger, the amputation of his right leg below the knee, a fractured arm, fractured right leg and a fractured pelvis. He still suffers daily pain and discomfort as a result of these injuries which have altered his life dramatically from the one he led before the accident happened. 

de Broglio Inc appointed various medico-legal experts to consult with their client during the claim process. The Industrial Psychologist who consulted with him indicated that because of the accident he “is functioning on lowered productivity levels” and “is no longer an equal contender in the open labour market”. The Counselling Psychologist commented that as a result of the accident “it appears that Mr Kendall has been left with some long-term neuropsychological difficulties”.

In late 2013, the legal team of de Broglio Inc accompanied Isaiah to the North Gauteng High Court where they negotiated with the RAF until they were happy with the offer which they accepted in the amount of R2, 289, 693.00.

Both Isaiah and the attorney from de Broglio Inc were very pleased with the result obtained and his settlement joined the other successes achieved over the last 2 decades by the specialist law firm.
