updated: 17-Jun-20

They have assisted thousands of people in claiming compensation in such cases and consistently provide their clients with regular updates, transparency and ultimately, top results.

One such recent settlement won by de Broglio Attorneys was for their client Thomas Tshabalala*. He had been wrongfully arrested while walking home from a pub one night and suffered various injuries as a result of this. He lost his left eye after being shot in the eye, and was humiliated and handcuffed for several hours, when indeed he was innocent of any charges.

He contacted a local attorney who assisted him in starting a claim against the police. That law firm then closed down and they referred him to de Broglio Attorneys to continue with his claim. He explained, “I got referred to them by my previous lawyers as my previous lawyers closed down.”

de Broglio Attorneys took Thomas on as a client and handled his case against the police for wrongful arrest. This law firm has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to wrongful arrests and were able to win the case and obtain a hefty settlement figure of R1,549,783.00 for Thomas.

 Thomas was highly pleased with the way de Broglio Attorneys handled his personal injury claim. He praised them, “I received a very good service from them, they were very efficient. They always updated me on my case, and on how things were going and they always supported me.”

Now that his claim has been finalized, Thomas is positive about his future. He said, “I am so relieved that this is all over. I am relieved that I now have closure. My future looks better now, I am looking forward positively.”
