RAF Claim Success with R315,000.00 Settlement

updated: 05-Apr-17

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. are by far the most reputable law firm dealing with Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims in South Africa. They have decades of experience in this field of law and a long list of very satisfied clients that they have helped successfully settle claims against the RAF. It is no wonder why people continue to contact them for advice on RAF claims and entrust them with their RAF cases.  

Recently, de Broglio Attorneys Inc. were able to substantially increase an offer they received from the RAF for their client Herman Scheepers*. The attorney handling his matter explained what had transpired in his case, “In Herman’s RAF case, a tender was made for R200,000.00 less 10% apportionment which is R180,000.00 for General Damages. We made a counter proposal and received a revised offer of R350,000.00 less 10% which is R315,000.00. His matter was settled for R315,000.00, an excellent result.” 

Michael de Broglio commented, “A case like this illustrates exactly why this is dangerous to go to the Road Accident Fund directly instead of using a professional.” Without the assistance of a legal professional, your claim against the RAF may be under settled without you even knowing it. 

Herman was glad he chose de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to take on his claim. He had been approached by other law firms to assist him but he knew he only wanted the best legal representation available. He explained how he came about contacting de Broglio Attorneys Inc. for assistance with a RAF claim, “I had heard of them on the radio. And then after my accident, I was contacted by an attorney in Bloemfontein. But I told them no and that I was going with de Broglio Attorneys. Before I had even contacted de Broglio I told these attorneys I was going with them.”

His matter was settled for R315,000.00 in the South Gauteng High Court. Herman said, “I’m content with my settlement. I got a lot more than I expected. And I got a 90% medical undertaking for future medical costs, so I’m pretty happy with that.” He added, “As for the updates and feedback from De Broglio they were always welcomed and informative, keeping me up to date all the time.”
