updated: 25-May-16

de Broglio Attorneys Inc. is a law firm that has established itself as one of the leading persoanl injury firms in South Africa. The reputation of the firm is one of success, great results and excellent client service. They pride themselves in ensuring each and every claim is investigated thoroughly and each and every client is kept updated on the happenings during the process. Recently they settled a case against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) for the excellent amount of R1,500,000.00 in the North Gauteng High Court.

In this case, Brian House*, a middle-aged Capetonian, was injured in a motor vehicle accident that was no fault of his own. He had been parked at a stop street when he was suddenly struck from the right by a vehicle. He lost consciousness due to the impact and only woke up later in hospital where he was admitted for 3 months due to the severity of the injuries he had suffered.  

In the accident he sustained a hard blow to his head, fractured ribs, a fractured wrist and injury to his neck and back. He took months to recover and wanted to claim from the RAF.

He didn’t know about the fact that one can claim from the RAF. Brian said, “I was working at a dealership and one of the technicians knew a consultant at de Broglio. They did all the forms for me and I signed all the papers.” 

Brian was happy with the service he received from de Broglio Attorneys Inc. He said, “They started flying me up to Joburg and arranging for me to stay in the BnB and arranging for me to see all the specialists.”

He resigned from his job as a motor mechanic at the time of the accident because he felt he could not copy mentally or physically with the demands of the job since the accident. Fortunately, he was able to secure further employment since then however his life was negatively affected by the accident and would never be the same again. 

de Broglio Attorneys Inc. know that to settle a claim properly one needs to take the matter to court. They proceeded to the North Gauteng High Court where they victoriously settled Brian’s claim for the amount of R1,500,000.00.

Brian said, “I don’t know how much I am going to get after the tax and all that but I am happy. The service has been good. I am happy with the service.”
