Mine Worker Wins RAF Case in the Amount of R2,761,783.00

updated: 24-Sep-15

Leading law firm de Broglio Attorneys have once again shown why they are viewed as the number one law firm in claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) in a recent settlement where they secured R2,761,783.00 for a client who had been injured in a motor vehicle accident. Results like this are a common phenomenon for clients of the law firm which believes that if it’s not your fault, it shouldn’t be your problem.

Scott Bekker* sustained a serious injury to his left foot when he was involved in a motor vehicle accident. He had to undergo orthopaedic reconstruction of his foot and was left with a serious impairment. He also sustained a mild traumatic brain injury.

He spent almost seven months at home recuperating from his injuries during which time he lost a substantial amount of income. Subsequently he was medically boarded and his contract with the mine was terminated. 

His life had changed drastically for the worst and he wanted to find compensation for his losses. He heard about claiming from the RAF and employed de Broglio Attorneys to assist him in making his claim. 

Scott didn’t cause the accident but he was left in dire straits because of it. He was on his motorcycle when he was sideswiped by an oncoming vehicle which was in the wrong lane. He incurred hundreds of thousands of Rands in medical bills.

de Broglio Attorneys are well-known as the experts in personal injury and RAF claims. They handled Scott’s claim from the litigation, to the correspondence and medico legal consultations with various experts including a Plastic Surgeon and an Orthopaedic Surgeon. An attorney at the firm commented, “The satisfaction of assisting clients who have been injured in an accident due to no fault of their own is tremendous.” This genuine interest in their clients resonates in the spectacular and consistent results they achieve time and again.

In Scott’s case, R2,761,783.00 was awarded to him by the North Gauteng High Court.
