Exceptional Interim Settlement of R1,831,774.41

updated: 19-Feb-17

Road Accident Fund (RAF) specialist law firm de Broglio Attorneys Inc. have a plethora of past clients for whom they have secured successful settlements. Their expertize lies in RAF, personal injury and medical negligence claims. This prestigious law firm opened its doors to the public over 22 years ago and have since built a history of success in settling claims. They are experts in this field of law and are able to increase offers made by the RAF by fighting hard for their clients. 

Recently, de Broglio Attorneys Inc. rejected an offer made by the RAF and substantially increased it in an interim settlement at the South Gauteng High Court. Their client, Juan Iqbal* reported, “I’m happy with the interim settlement. I don’t think I could have got that amount of money without an attorney helping me. The attorney and the advocate that I had from de Broglio’s were on point. They were spot on throughout the case. The RAF attorneys had no leg to stand on.” 

The RAF made a ridiculous offer in Juan’s case which his attorney advised him to reject. Juan’s attorney explained the following, “They made a verbal offer of R800,000.00 at court. We requested that the Judge give us an allocation and we then argued contingencies in respect of loss of earnings before the Judge, resulting in the R1.8 million interim payment order being made.”

Juan was so happy to have de Broglio Attorneys Inc. as his law firm. He initially contacted another law firm who advised they would not be able to assist him. De Broglio Attorneys Inc. can settle a RAF claim where other law firms do not even believe there is a claim. Juan said, “My wife contacted de Broglio after she saw an ad on TV. Before that we contacted another attorney who said I had to wait 72 months because my accident was too fresh. Then we got hold of de Broglio who came to see us at our house. They explained everything to us in detail. We then signed the affidavit and gave permission to de Broglio to handle our claim.”

This case highlights how de Broglio Attorneys Inc. can considerably increase an offer made by the RAF and how they can settle claims where other law firms have failed to do so. This law firm fights for their clients guaranteeing each claim is settled for the highest possible amount. 

The rest of Juan’s matter was postponed to a later court date and Juan looks forward to experiencing further success with his legal team at de Broglio Attorneys Inc.
