15-Year-Old Awarded R3,500,000.00

updated: 17-May-17

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. recently secured a hefty sum of money for one of their young clients who was an innocent victim in a motor vehicle accident. They sued the Road Accident Fund (RAF) on her behalf and settled her claim for a substantial amount. This is a very specific field of law that demands expertize and experience in such cases. De Broglio Attorneys Inc. is the law firm who has this expertize and experience in settling RAF claims and have been doing so successfully for over 2 decades. 

In this recent case, Shana du Randt* had been badly injured in a motor vehicle accident and her father approached de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to assist with a claim for his daughter against the RAF. He had heard that they were the best lawyers for this type of work and he was not diappointed.

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. consulted with them and decided to accept their instructions in prosecuting the RAF for compensation for her. The prestigious law firm invested heavily in ensuring that her claim was successful and ensured that every aspect was covered competently. 

Each RAF case is different depending on each person and their particular circumstances and injuries and each case must receive individual attention in order for one to succeed in suing the RAF.

Shana’s attorney summarised her case as follows, “The Plaintiff was a passenger when the accident occurred and merits were conceded. At the time when the accident occurred, the minor was 8 years old and in grade 2. She sustained a serious brain injury and an interim payment of R1,500,000.00 was awarded two years ago. As a result of the brain injury, the minor needs remedial class so that she can pass grade 12.”

Recently a further R2,000,000.00 was awarded to her in the North Gauteng High Court. This makes a grand total of R3,000,000.00 being awarded to Shana from the RAF.

Her legal team was overjoyed with the settlement that they achieved for their client and her father said, “I am very happy with the settlement. My daughter is feeling better now even at school.”

This case is another example of the wonderful work that the team at de Broglio Attorneys Inc. does on a daily basis for all of their clients. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident which was not your fault, then phone them on 011 446-4200 for free telephonic advice on a RAF claim.
