Excellent RAF Settlement of R5,021,984.00

updated: 12-May-17

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. are an expert law firm specialising in Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims for innocent victims of motor vehicle accidents. They have been doing these types of claims for over 22 years and have built up a reputation of being the best attorneys in this field of law because they consistently deliver outstanding results to their clients and have top-grade levels of client service. 

One of their clients, Thembi Senemela*, recently enjoyed the benefit of being a de Broglio client when her RAF case was settled for almost double what the RAF initially offered her because her attorneys knew that her claim was worth much more and they knew how to get the money for her.  

Her attorney reported, “In this matter the RAF offered us R3,000,000.00. We elected to have the matter allocated to a judge as we knew the matter to be worth more. We argued the loss of earnings as well as general damages which resulted in the order of R5 021 984.00.” 

Thembi’s matter was settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the dazzling amount of R5,021,984.00. This is over R2,000,000.00 more than the RAF wanted her to accept. This clearly illustrates how important it is to have an attorney assist you in your RAF claim because Thembi would not have known that her claim was worth much more than what the RAF was offering. 

“An excellent result which shows the extent to which the RAF under-settle,” said her attorney. 

Thembi was overwhelmed with the settlement and commented, ““I heard about de Broglio Attorneys from a colleague when I used to work in Cape Town. I emailed them and someone called me back and we consulted telephonically and via email. I am very happy about the settlement. Words cannot express my gratitude.” 

Michael de Broglio was proud of what his team had achieved in this matter and said, “Approaching the Road Accident Fund directly is extremely dangerous, it often leads to under-settled cases, and the result we achieved in this case is a perfect example as to why you need a professional firm of attorneys on your side.”
