Six-Year-Old Child Awarded R4,423,783.00 in Court

updated: 07-Jun-16

de Broglio Attorneys Inc. recently settled one of their client’s claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) for a substantial amount of money. This law firm is known for their high settlement rate, obtaining settlement figures that far outweigh any of their competitors. Their clients can enjoy the highest level of service and communication about their claim while waiting assuredly for their claim to be settled for the maximum compensation possible. In this recent settlement, we once again see that de Broglio Attorneys Inc. will stop at nothing to ensure that their clients are always fully compensated for their accidents. 

In this matter, Cindy Bezuidenhout* made a claim against the RAF on behalf of her six-year-old son who was injured in a motor vehicle accident. He had been a passenger in a motor vehicle travelling along a road where a City Power Generator was standing on the side of the road and was not visible as the street lights were not working. The vehicle he was travelling in collided with the generator resulting in him sustaining serious injuries.

He was left blind in his left eye, sustained a broken collar bone, 2 broken vertebrae with bleeding and swelling fn his brain. His family decided to claim from the RAF and approached de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to handle their claim on his behalf.

They were kept abreast of new developments in his case at all times, informed of various medico legal appointments arranged for them and guided step by step through the claims process. Claiming from the RAF can be a very daunting task and it is imperative that seriously injured persons seek the assistance of a well established law firm like de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to assist them through the battle.

His matter was settled in the South Gauteng High Court for the outstanding figure of R4,423,783.00.

His grandmother assisted Cindy and her son right through the case and gave us the following feedback, “I sent Mr de Broglio a letter to thank him. He has such wonderful staff. Thank you very, very much for working on the case. Kaylee was fantastic and is an asset to the company. Everyone who worked on his claim was fantastic so we are very, very happy. I’ve been involved right from the beginning and I tell you it’s hard work, it’s not easy but it was something on my bucket list and I just feel like they needed a better life. Everyone we speak to we tell them how wonderful you are and that we couldn’t do it without you, so thank you very, very much.”
