R7,407,526.00 Partial Payment Prosperity

updated: 17-Apr-17

Top-rated personal injury attorneys de Broglio Attorneys Inc. have been specialising in Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims for the past 22 years. They have built up and maintained a legal practice that is regarded as the leading personal injury law firm in South Africa. They have handled and successfully settled a wide range of RAF claims and always ensure that their clients receive the best service and obtain maximum compensation for them.

This is evidenced in a recent settlement for one of their clients who sustained multiple fractures, a skull fracture and a brain injury. They managed to get him R7,407,526.00 for his loss of income alone! 

Allan Higgs* was this fortunate client and benefited tremendously from choosing de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to handle his RAF claim. His attorney said, “In this matter we originally received an offer from the RAF with an 80/20 apportionment and quantum offer of R129,424.86. We proceeded to settle his merits at 100% and the settlement for just his loss of income for an amount of R7,407,526.00!”

Michael de Broglio was very happy with the result in this matter and in the fact that his firm had managed to save his client from accepting an extremely low offer from the RAF. Mr de Broglio warned regarding the dangers of approaching the RAF directly instead of using an attorney, “The Road Accident Fund appeals to people to approach them directly, but when they under-settle the cases, the Road Accident Fund alleges that it is impossible, as indeed is the case, for it to represent both the claimant and the insured person.”

Allan was ecstatic with his settlement  and said, “I am very happy with my settlement.” Allan’s mother was very involved in his case assisting him due to the extent of his injuries. She commented, “Allan is very, very happy with his settlement. I think he is in shock. When the team came to us explaining the settlement offer I couldn't grasp the number. Thought I heard wrong! R7.4 mil for loss of income. We are still in shock.”

Allan’s mother further added, “We live in Cape Town. He is unable to support himself financially and is in constant pain. However, I need you to know that having the support of your firm has made a huge difference in our lives,” and “You are more than just a law firm, you have held us safe and kept us going.”
