Young Injured Child Gets R4,867,818.00

updated: 08-Apr-21

The Road Accident Fund (RAF) is a South African government organization that compensates victims of motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, suing the RAF in your own personal capacity comes at the high risk of not getting the compensation that you deserve. Enter the experts, de Broglio Attorneys, who have been assisting people claim from the RAF for over twenty five years, ensuring that their clients get the maximum compensation that they are due.

Peter van Heerden* mandated de Broglio Attorneys to make a claim against the RAF on behalf of his minor daughter, Catherine*, who had suffered skull fractures, internal organ damage, and scarring after they had been hit from behind by another vehicle.  

Peter heard that de Broglio Attorneys were the best when it came to making claims against the RAF. “It was through a friend that I heard about de Broglio Attorneys, a recommendation from someone who had used them. He was one of their clients and said I must use them, they are excellent and that was true,” explained Peter.

de Broglio Attorneys places a high value on client service. Their clients receive the best service, updates and results available from any law firm. Peter confirmed this when he said, “The service was really good from the first encounter with them, it was really, really good and very informative. The full process was explained to us, from the beginning to the end. It was easy for us to go with them.”

Catherine’s claim was settled out of court for the tremendous amount of R4,867,818.00. Peter commented on the settlement, “The settlement amount is very satisfactory, we settled out of court.”

de Broglio Attorneys have helped thousands and thousands of victims obtain the compensation they deserve, and are there for them throughout the entire process. Peter testified of this, “I think it’s just the fact that de Broglio takes away all the troubles. The RAF process if complicated and they make it easy for you. They do all the groundwork, they do all the research, they put you in contact with all the right people and doctors. It is a difficult time going through the aftermath of a car accident, and de Broglio was there to make it an easier process. They did all the work and took away our troubles.”
