Court Orders a Settlement of R4,089,189.00

updated: 13-Oct-15

The South Gauteng High Court recently heard a matter brought forward by de Broglio Attorneys involving a child who was terribly injured in a motor vehicle accident. The reputable law firm ensured their client received a stupendous settlement for what he had gone through as a result of the terrible accident. de Broglio Attorneys are the leaders in their field when it comes to settling claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) and continue to forge forward paving the path for success for client after client. 

16 year old Jeremy Ferreira* had been transported home by his cousin when he was involved in a car accident. His cousin dropped him off at home and when Jeremy exited the vehicle, his cousin accidentally drove over him. As a result of the accident he fractured his right ankle and had a degloving injury of his foot, his chest was crushed, and he had a broken shoulder and a head injury.

It was a terrible time for him and his family. His entire youth and future had just been ripped away from him in one swift movement. Jeremy said, “it affected me with my working conditions and being at home all the time. It was difficult to do the normal stuff you do every day.”

His mother was devastated about what had happened to her son and was looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. She said, “When Jeremy was involved in the accident a friend of mine told me to put a claim in and I remembered the advert from the TV.” That is when she decided to contact de Broglio Attorneys for help. She employed the law firm to help them institute a claim against the RAF as Jeremy was still a minor. 

De Broglio Attorneys handled Jeremy’s claim for its entire duration. The firm specializes in claims against the RAF and ensured his matter was handled with the best expertize by top legal staff which ultimately led to a successful result at the end of the process. 

Jeremy’s case was settled in the South Gauteng High Court for the fantastic amount of R4,089,189.00.

He was ecstatic about his settlement, “I’m very happy with the settlement that I got. I was very happy with the service, everything was always arranged before the actual date and they always reminded me of appointments. It was just very good service.”

He once again has hope for the future, “the money that I got can actually help me, I can get people to help me.” Another success by de Broglio Attorneys.
