R3,322,390.00 Granted to Client who Lost his Eye

updated: 11-Nov-15

de Broglio Attorneys handle a variety of personal injury claims including those made against the Road Accident Fund (RAF). They have been doing this type of legal work for over 20 years and have gathered a wealth of experience and expertise in this field of law. Well-renowned amongst their peers and clients for getting excellent results for their claims, de Broglio Attorneys once again proved they are forefront leaders when they recently settled one of their client’s claims for a staggering R3,322,390.00.

In this case, the client, Joshua Elkman*, had been driving through an intersection when another vehicle skipped a stop street and collided with him. There was nothing he could have done to avoid the accident and unfortunately he became a victim of someone else’s negligence. 

As a result of the accident he sustained a head injury and injured his left eye so badly that it was removed. His world literally became a dark place in just an instant. 

Joshua was contacted by other attorneys wanting to process his RAF claim but he wanted to use the best in the field, “I saw on a television advert about de Broglio and after other attorneys were calling me I decided to call de Broglio.”

De Broglio Attorneys employed the services of a panel of top medico-legal experts to consult with Joshua and draft the critical reports needed to substantiate his claim. De Broglio Attorneys financed the entire claim so Joshua did not have to carry the financial burden of the claim.   

The law firm ensured that Joshua received regular updates and that he was always informed of the developments in his case. This strengthened the client-attorney relationship leaving Joshua feeling satisfied with the work done on his claim. 

As with almost every claim against the RAF, Joshua and his legal team had to attend court in order to settle the matter. The matter was eventually settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the phenomenal amount of R3,322,390.00.

Joshua was overwhelmed with his settlement and praised the de Broglio team, “I’m very happy with the settlement, it was a long journey but it turned out to be a fruitful one. De Broglio Attorneys is one of the best attorneys in the country.”
