Impressive R1,211,923.00 Award for Injured Passenger

updated: 21-Oct-16

The professional service and results provided by de Broglio Attorneys Inc. have cemented their reputation as the leading law firm in South African for personal injury claims and claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF). Time after time this legal giant conquers the battle against the RAF and settles claims successfully ensuring their clients are awarded compensation fit for their injuries and losses. 

de Broglio Attorneys Inc. recently settled a claim against the RAF for their client Gladys Maribana* for injuries she sustained as a passenger in an accident involving another motor vehicle turning in front of them. She sustained injuries that had a major affect on her employment and earnings.

She contacted de Broglio Attorneys Inc. for assistance with instituting a claim against the RAF. The law firm took on her case and provided her with regular, informed updates. Gladys’s RAF claim was eventually settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the impressive amount of R1,211,923.00.

The attorney who handled the claim said, “This client worked at a well-known cosmetic outlet as a beauty consultant which required her to be on her feet for most of the day. In the accident she sustained a soft tissue injury to her left knee and to her right knee. As a result of these injuries she couldn’t wear high heels, which was also a requirement of her job. She was unable to continue working as a beauty consultant and lost her job as a result of her injuries. This settlement was a good settlement because even though the injuries were soft tissue injuries, they had a major impact on her employment and earnings. This is what she wanted to do for her job and now because of her injuries she was unable to do that job.”

This settlement illustrates how intricate the process of suing the RAF is. Every case is different and must be approached as such in order to maximise the results for each client. The legal team at de Broglio Attorneys Inc. have the expertize and knowledge needed to forge forward with a RAF claim until settlement.
