De Broglio Inc reaches settlement for hard working school teacher

updated: 11-Jan-13

De Broglio Inc is a firm of specialist personal injury attorneys striving for justice on behalf of every one of our clients. The following case highlights our focused and refined skill set in claims against the RAF, a field in which we specialize.

Our client, Sandra Richards*, was a fulltime primary school teacher, helping the future leaders of our country learn and grow. Furthermore, she was studying part-time in order to further qualify herself and expand her potential in her chosen occupation of education. However on 29 September 2007, our client was involved in a car accident.

The accident resulted in the sustentation of a C2 fracture, a fractured femur and a complex head injury which lead to neuro-cognitive changes for our Sandra. The implication of this injury is that, according to medical experts, our client can no longer finish her studies and will thus not be able to achieve the qualifications needed in forwarding her career to level of Head of Department. After taking a year off due to the injuries she sustained, our client was able to return back to work, however her orthopedic injuries forced her scale down her extra-curricular responsibilities at the school where she is employed.

The merits of the case were previously conceded and the matter was settled for the sum of R1 857 040.00 in favor of De Broglio Inc. As result of the judgment, dignity and justice was restored, which at De Broglio Inc, is always the outcome we strive for.
