Phenomenal RAF Settlement of R5,000,000.00

updated: 02-Nov-16

What a resounding success for our client, motor vehicle accident victim Gareth Morris*! The North Gauteng High Court recently heard the arguments of the Road Accident Fund (RAF) and de Broglio Attorneys Inc. in a recent RAF case and the latter won the case by a mile securing a massive settlement for their client. This is a typical scenario for the clients of de Broglio Attorneys Inc. who are a renowned personal injury law firm specialising in RAF claims. Their clients consistently benefit from their no-nonsense proactive approach to settling cases against the RAF.

In this recent matter, Gareth was involved in a motorcycle accident where the guilty driver simply turned in front of him as he proceeded along his right of way. There was nothing Gareth could do to avoid the accident and was seriously injured as a result of the collision. He suffered from multiple compound fractures of both his legs resulting in his right leg being permanently shortened. 

Even though Gareth lived in Kwa-Zulu Natal, he knew that he needed the best attorneys in the country to fight his case against the RAF for him. He said, “One of my friends saw the T.V. advert and then told me about de Broglio Attorneys.” He immediately contacted de Broglio Attorneys Inc. in Gauteng and this prestigious law firm handled his case in it’s entirety for him. Gareth is one of thousands of de Broglio clients who have been compensated by the RAF because of the strong legal team fighting for him. 

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. handle serious injury RAF claims for clients who reside all over South Africa. Michael de Broglio has set up his firm to ensure that even if a client resides far away, that client will receive the best service and the ultimate settlement in his/her RAF case. This is exactly what happened in Gareth’s case where he received constant updates on his case and at the end of the day his matter was settled for an exceptional amount of money. 

Gareth’s RAF case was settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the staggering amount of R5,000,000.00. He said, “I’m very satisfied about how the claim was handled and about the settlement figure and I’m happy it is finally over and done with.”
