Remarkable R6,772,834.00 Triumph

updated: 01-Jun-20

de Broglio Attorneys was victorious in court over the Road Accident Fund (RAF) in a recent claim that they settled for the incredible amount of R6,772,834.00. This settlement was compensation for the pain and suffering their client had endured as a result of a motor vehicle accident for which he was not to blame, as well as a tribute to all those motor vehicle victims who have suffered. de Broglio Attorneys are specialists in helping these victims claim from the RAF and ensuring that the compensation their clients receive is the highest possible amount.

In this recent case, George Mbeki*, a client of de Broglio Attorneys, had been travelling as a passenger in a vehicle that lost control and overturned and suffered very serious injuries as a result of the accident.

He appointed de Broglio Attorneys to sue the RAF. He searched on the internet for an attorney and found their website. He had heard that this well-known law firm was the best when it came to RAF claims. He said, “I found them via Google and I phoned them and we did everything over email and post because I live far.”

George was very impressed with the service he received from de Broglio Attorneys. He complimented them, “ I am impressed because of the support, patience and effective communication from de Broglio. They were very quick to respond to me, if I needed them they were there for me. They were like part of my family.”

His claim was settled in the North Gauteng High Court three years after his accident for the unbelievable figure of R6,772,834.00. He jubilantly commented, “I am extremely excited about my settlement. I know it takes long to pay. I’m very patient, they keep sending me emails explaining the payment to me and supporting me even after settlement. I know will survive, I will be strong.”

Now that his claim has been finalized, George is looking forward to the future with a vision. “I am first going to get well, get proper treatment so that I can improve my medical condition which is difficult during this lockdown period. Then I am going to push hard to better myself to try and study and then if I’m fortunate I will get a job, if not, I will try start my own business,” he said.
