Injured Cyclist is Awarded Settlement of R800,335.00

updated: 07-May-16

A recent matter against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) heard in the South Gauteng High Court was fought and succesfully settled by the leaders in this field of law, de Broglio Attorneys Inc. This prominent law firm has been handling personal injury claims including claims against the RAF for over 20 years. Michael de Broglio has built up the firm to the highest standing in the legal profession and each and every client is a priority to him.

In this recent settlement, one of the clients of de Broglio Attorneys Inc., Johann Henning*, was cycling in a peaceful suburb near his home when he was suddenly knocked over by a motor vehicle. He suffered from various injuries as a result of the accident including a fractured jaw, broken ribs, broken teeth and decreased hearing in his left ear.

As a result of the accident, Johann found himself in a whirlwind of increasing medical expenses and pain from his injuries. He knew he had to do something and seek help.

Johann decided to claim from the RAF. He said he wanted to claim “because I had incurred quite high medical expenses. If the medical expenses hadn’t been so high I probably would not have claimed. It was the amount that was so high.”

He had seen and heard the various adverts of the law firm and decided to contact de Broglio Attorneys Inc. for advice on claiming against the RAF. He said his choice of law firm was influenced by the reputation of the firm and mentioned, “Well they are the most well known ones and I had heard of them from the adverts.”

Johann’s case was heard in the South Gauteng High Court where it was settled for the amount of R800,335.00. He was represented by an attorney of de Broglio Attorneys Inc. as well as by an advocate.

Johann was highly pleased with the way his case was handled by all involved over the years as well as with the settlement figure. He said, “I was very happy with the settlement figure and with the attorneys and advocates that I spoke to along the way. I thought they were all pretty good.”
