updated: 01-Mar-16

When a passenger is seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, they qualify for a claim against the Road Accident Fund (RAF). The law firm, de Broglio Attorneys Inc., have helped thousands of seriously injured passengers over the last 20 years to claim from the RAF. This law firm is well-known for their ability to ensure that their clients receive the maximum compensation possible, even in some cases where other law firms only managed to secure a smaller offer from the RAF. It takes a legal powerhouse like de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to be on your side when you are up against the RAF!

David Louw* was a passenger in a motor vehicle when the driver swerved to avoid something in the road and lost control of the vehicle. He was badly injured in the accident. 

He suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident including two fingers on his right hand being amputated and third degree burns to his back and shoulder which required skin grafts. This accident had a devastating effect on many areas of his life. His life would never be the same again and he knew he had to do something about that.

David said, “One of my dad’s friends, someone he works with, said that we should contact you guys.” So David decided to claim from the RAF. He decided to listen to the referral he had received and contacted de Broglio Attorneys Inc. for advice on a possible claim. He was happy to hear that they would help him and take on his case.  

David only had positive feedback on the way his claim was handled by the well-known law firm. He commented, “I have no complaints at all. Everything was very professional. You guys helped me a lot in understanding the process.”

His case against the RAF was successfully settled by de Broglio Attorneys Inc. in the North Gauteng High Court for the excellent amount of R1,539,564.00.

David was ecstatic with the settlement figure. He reported, “I am very happy with the settlement, it was more than I expected.”

The successful settlement of David’s claim is yet another testimony of the irrefutable reputation de Broglio Attorneys Inc. have for successfully managing and settling claims against the RAF.
