Happy Client Settled for R1,727,902.50

updated: 19-Oct-17

de Broglio Attorneys Inc. often take on Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims from other attorneys where those attorneys have not done any work on the claim leaving the claimant frustrated and upset. This negligence creates a situation where a claimant is prejudiced. de Broglio Attorneys Inc. know exactly what to do when it comes to suing the RAF and have taken over thousands of claims from other attorneys who simply do not have the same expertise and service levels that they do.  

In a recent case, de Broglio Attorneys Inc. turned an upset claimant into a happy client when they took over his case and managed to successfully settle his RAF claim for R1,727,902.50 in the North Gauteng High Court.  

This client, Vuyo Dhlomo*,was side swiped in a motor vehicle accident which resulted in him enduring a “fractured vertebrae, fractured pelvis and concussion,” he said.  

Vuyo had already consulted with another attorney who had done absolutely nothing on his RAF claim for over one year. He had grown extremely frustrated with the lack of progress and feedback from these attorneys and decided to do some research. “I was perusing the internet and saw de Broglio’s website,” commented Vuyo. He added further, “I was frustrated with an attorney who was supposed to help me. I gave him everything and a year later he still had done nothing. In fact, he never gave me a file number; there was no contact at all. I was referred to him by the hospital and this man never contacted me since.”  

From the moment he gave de Broglio Attorneys Inc. the mandate to do his RAF claim he saw his claim progress forwards in leaps and bounds. “de Broglio did everything. They took the case over and finalized it,” he said.  

Vuyo’s claim had been prejudiced by his previous attorneys who had not done anything on the claim. Now with de Broglio Attorneys Inc. he could see how an RAF claim should be handled. de Broglio Attorneys Inc. kept him updated and made sure his claim progressed as speedily as possible to make up for the time wasted by his prior attorney. “I didn’t want the matter to drag on because I already had a delay and with the RAF it takes time so I am happy now with the settlement,” said Vuyo. 

Vuyo was ecstatic with his settlement and with the service he received from de Broglio Attorneys Inc. In closing he said, “I have already recommended de Broglio attorneys to my friends and family. I believe they are the best.”
