The Road Accident Fund (RAF) offers compensation to people who are seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents on South African roads. This sounds clear cut, but thousands of people who approach the RAF directly to claim compensation for their injuries receive little or no compensation. You may ask, “Why is that?” Well, one of the reasons is because an ordinary person, let alone someone in pain from injuries, does not have the legal power, funds or expertize to process such a claim and their ignorance is taken advantage of. It is therefore absolutely vital that you use an attorney to help you claim from the RAF if you want to get any money out from them.
de Broglio Attorneys have been helping claimants successfully settle claims against the RAF for over 22 years. They are experts in this field of law and have thousands of successful claims as a testimony to their expertize. They are a well-known legal powerhouse and provide excellent service to their clients.
One of their clients, Angelique Hibbert*, recently had her RAF claim settled by de Broglio Attorneys for the outstanding amount of R6,146,509.00. She had been involved in a head on collision with a truck in late 2013. The accident left her with injuries that badly impacted on her. The injuries she suffered were a traumatic brain injury and multiple fractures.
She saw the de Broglio Attorneys television adverts about the RAF and heard from a colleague that she should use them to claim from the RAF. Angelique said, “I saw the TV ads and also heard from someone who is working with me and then I gave them a call. The guy I was working with his brother was also in an accident and he used de Broglio so he referred me. I called them and took everything to them and went from there.”
de Broglio Attorneys handled Angelique’s RAF claim from the beginning making sure that every step was taken to ensure her claim would be a success. Angelique said, “The service I received from De Broglio Attorneys was great.”
Angelique went to trial with her legal team in early 2018 and her RAF claim was settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the staggering amount of R6,146,509.00. This was a victory for her and de Broglio Attorneys who pride themselves in consistently achieving top settlement amounts for their clients.
