Esteemed law firm, de Broglio Attorneys, are experts in handling Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims for their clients. They have helped thousands of people in successfully suing the RAF for compensation for injuries and losses arising from road accidents. The claim process is intricate and demands the expertise of a legal expert such as de Broglio Attorneys in order to be successful. One such case was that of a widow who lost her husband in a motor vehicle accident and used de Broglio Attorneys to sue the RAF for compensation.

Lucy Flanders* claimed for loss of support for herself and her three children when her husband was killed in a motor vehicle accident. He had been a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a head on collision and died as a result of his injuries.

He left behind his wife and three children whom he had supported. Lucy had been advised to contact de Broglio Attorneys for advice on a possible RAF claim. She contacted them and they set the RAF claim in motion. She said, “People referred me. I was asking around. I asked many people and more than one guy told me to go to you guys.”

They have extensive experience with these types of claims and have assisted thousands of widows and widowers over the last 2 decades. Lucy was impressed with the service she received from de Broglio Attorneys and commented, “Dealing with de Broglio was good. They kept me updated regularly, and if I had some questions  they would always answer my questions. I was always kept updated.”

Lucy’s matter was set down for trial but her attorney managed to secure a substantial settlement of R3,862,453.00 two days before the court date which she accepted. Lucy explained, “My case was settled out of court. De Broglio phoned me two days before the court date and I accepted that offer.”

Lucy concluded, “If someone I know was involved in an accident I would refer them to de Broglio, definitely. It was definitely worthwhile.”
