R2,549,896.00 Interim Settlement for Sales Executive

updated: 16-Jul-15

It has been said that word of mouth is one of the most powerful forms of marketing. de Broglio Inc receive hundreds of referrals for new claims against the Road Accident Fund from their past and current clients, because those clients have had such success with the services and results they have received from the firm. de Broglio Inc always ensure their clients receive regular updates, top class service and the best settlements possible. 

Terry Viljoen* was hit from behind and sustained severe whiplash when she decided she wanted to claim from the RAF. “It was one of my friends, he’s a lawyer, and he actually referred us to de Broglio”, she said

She had been working as a sales executive at the time of the accident and her injuries really affected her ability to work. She said, “I used to battle with headaches and I had to concentrate with driving.”

She employed the leading law firm to handle her claim against the RAF and said of their service, “The service was very good…it was very professional”. The excellent service was actually one of the highlights of doing her claim through de Broglio Inc. de Broglio Inc make something as complicated, and often traumatic, as claiming from the RAF, a pleasure for their clients.

In Terry’s claim, the merits were found to be 100% in her favour and there was an interim payment of R2, 549, 896.00 for loss of income with the General Damages part of the claim postponed. 

Even though the matter was not yet finalized, Terry was overjoyed with the interim settlement, “I’m very happy with it”. When asked if she would refer the law firm to others she said, “I will definitely tell them it is worth using you guys.”

The attorney who was responsible for her claim said, “The main reason that the settlement was so big was because her job was mainly driving and because of her injuries she battled to fulfil her job requirements. Even with a small injury it affects people differently, your job is a factor as well. It affects each person differently. In this matter we were very pleased with the settlement.”
