De Broglio Secures R2,046,807.00 Where Other Attorneys Failed

updated: 21-Oct-15

Successfully suing the Road Accident Fund (RAF) demands specialist knowledge of the claims process and how to handle the RAF. This is exactly what de Broglio Attorneys specialise in suing the RAF. The specialist law firm regularly assists clients settle claims where the clients’ previous attorneys were not able to successfully settle the matters or where the clients have complained of unsatisfactory service. 

Chloe Immelman* was a passenger on a motorcyclist when a maintenance truck made a U-turn in front of them and there was no time for the rider to swerve or avoid the collision. Chloe was flung from the motorcycle and landed on the road sustaining serious injuries as a result. 

20 year old Chloe couldn’t remember the accident as she lost consciousness on impact. She fractured her pelvis in 3 places, broke a finger, cracked her skull, and sustained multiple scratches and bruises all over her body. 

Chloe employed a law firm to represent her in her RAF claim two months after her accident in 2010.  This firm lodged a claim of R280,000.00 for her, a substantially lower amount than the claim was eventually settled for by de Broglio Attorneys. After 3.5 years Chloe was fed up with her lawyers and changed attorneys. She said, “I decided to change attorneys in 2014, I was not happy with the service I received from them. There was a lack of communication and it seemed like they didn't put much effort into my case against the RAF, so I decided to move to De Broglio…”

De Broglio Attorneys terminated the mandate of Chloe’s attorneys and immediately set about to ensure she was not jeopardised by any unfortunate delays in her claim. De Broglio Attorneys ensured Chloe received professional service and regular updates on her claim. 

De Broglio Attorneys settled her claim 1.5 years after she mandated them to take over her RAF claim. The matter was settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the much increased amount of R2,046,807.00.

Chloe was overwhelmed with joy at her settlement, “…Now that my case is settled I couldn't be more happier with the outcome! That was the best decision I've made, I am a very happy client, and would recommend De Broglio attorneys to everyone! …”

De Broglio Attorneys were the rock that Chloe needed, guiding her along the precarious path that one has to take in suing the RAF. Chloe said, “I am very pleased with the service and know that I wouldn't have received it anywhere else, thank you for all the hard work and kind service, and for making me feel like I was treated as a priority. I love the fact that you continuously kept me updated about what was happening. I would like to thank everyone involved…!”
