Speedy Substantial Settlement of R3,555,585.00

updated: 09-Feb-15

De Broglio Inc are familiar with the tragic stories of their clients who have been involved in motor vehicle accidents and employ their services to make a claim against the Road Accident Fund. de Broglio Inc are experts in suing the RAF and turning tragedies into success stories. In this story, they won their case against the RAF and settled the claim for a wonderful R3, 555, 585.00.

Young Blake Kutcher* was knocked down by a truck as he was crossing the road on returning from the shops. He was 8 years old at the time.  It was a great tragedy and he suffered very serious injuries. He had severe brain damage and massive loss of skin.

 His brain injury badly affected his schooling. He was in the last half of Grade 3 when the accident happened. After the accident, he failed Grade 3 but they condoned him to Grade 4. He also failed Grade 4 but the school condoned him to Grade 5. He would never return to the little boy he once was. 

de Broglio Inc represented Blake in his claim against the RAF. They considered every aspect of his life and how his schooling and education was terribly affected and that his future prospects were now very dim. They employed experts to give professional advice and these experts reported that Blake would most probably not be able to pass Grade 12 even if he attended a special school. 

de Broglio Inc put together a solid case and proceeded to court just over 2 years after the accident. These RAF claims generally take over 3 years to settle so this was a wonderfully speedy settlement. Blake’s father made the claim on his behalf as Blake was a minor and he said, “I was happy with the settlement. It fills the needs of the problems the child has. It was quick, it took just 2 years. I have no complaints about the claim and the settlement. I was happy.”

 The case was settled in the South Gauteng High Court for R3, 555, 585.00. Another excellent settlement made by the legal team of de Broglio Inc.
