Victory Royale of R2,495,204.00

updated: 17-Nov-20

de Broglio Attorneys have been suing the Road Accident Fund (RAF) for over two decades and have a history of professionalism and success in doing so. They ensure their clients are well looked after and receive top settlements from court. Nothing is too difficult or complicated for de Broglio Attorneys to sort out and they have helped thousands of victims of motor vehicle accidents get compensation from the RAF.

Sheila Markus* put off claiming from the RAF until a year after her accident until she finally gave into the persuasion of her daughter in law and contacted de Broglio Attorneys. She wasn’t sure of the process and felt unsure of what to expect. Sheila explained, “I saw the advert on the T.V. all the time. My daughter in law also used to see it. She persuaded me to make a claim, she was persistent for three months and then on one day I said, ‘OK let me call them.’ Then they came back to me and came to my work place and did all the documents. The attorney explained everything to me. He even took me to the police station to do my affidavit. That was very good for me.”

In her accident, she was hit from behind while stationary at a red traffic light. She suffered a spinal fracture, soft tissue injuries to the neck and a torn tendon on the right shoulder. Her injuries negatively affect her ability to do her job and to interact with her grandchildren which is what really motivated her daughter in law to keep encouraging her to contact de Broglio Attorneys.

de Broglio provided Sheila with top-notch service throughout her claim. She commended them when she said, “They gave me excellent service and updates. What I like is that they update you twice a week, I just kept on getting emails. I thought that was very professional. They let you know a month or even five months before the time to go see the doctors and that was very professional so that you can plan.”

Sheila was never left in the dark when it came to the progress of her claim. de Broglio Attorneys ensured she was kept up to date and that everything was explained along the way. She said, “With each email they explain a lot to you about what to expect. I didn’t have to ask them anything. I like to be in the background so I didn’t want to go and have to see the attorney and by reading the emails I knew what was going on and didn’t have to ask questions.”

R2,495,204.00 is the amount de Broglio Attorneys settled her claim for in the South Gauteng High Court and Sheila couldn’t be more overjoyed with this result. She remarked, “I have already spread the news to so many people telling them how excellent you guys are so already you are the first people many people will get in touch with.”

“I told my daughter in law thank you for pushing me to contact de Broglio Attorneys. She saw how I was suffering from my injuries. I couldn’t carry the baby and she could see I was in a bad shape. It was her who made me contact them and I am so grateful,” she said.

Sheila’s story shows that even if you are unsure, rather contact de Broglio Attorneys for advice on a possible RAF claim, and you may have a valid claim with a result that could change your life.
