de Broglio Attorneys Inc. represented a claim against the Road Accident Fund (RAF), winning a startling amount of R4,919,801.00 in a case where a male motorcyclist was involved in an accident, with no recollection of the accident, resulting in a month-long medically induced coma. de Broglio Attorneys Inc., with their extraordinary portfolio of personal injury and RAF claims, successfully pursued the claim on their client’s behalf as experts in this field of law.
