Spinal Fracture Compensation of R1,880,946.00

updated: 15-Dec-15

de Broglio Attorneys Inc. represent thousands of plaintiffs in personal injury claims including those made against the Road Accident Fund (RAF). They have over 20 year’s legal experience and have garnered a wealth of experience and knowledge in this field of law. The law firm is respected amongst peers and clients for obtaining outstanding results. de Broglio Attorneys Inc. has yet again demonstrated their legacy by recently settling one of their client’s claims for an astonishing R1,880,946.00.

The case represents the law firm’s client, Leonard De Beer*, who was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a head on collision. The vehicle approaching from the opposite direction, overtook a vehicle in front of it and failed to gauge the distance correctly of the oncoming vehicle, colliding with the client’s vehicle, wherein he was a passenger.  This was a result of someone else’s negligence and Leonard was a victim in this case. 

As a result of the accident he sustained a spinal fracture, bruising on his legs and arms as well as an injured knee. His ability to function normally deteriorated rapidly which resulted in emotional and physical strain.

Leonard said, “Initially my medical aid said I needed to do a claim or I had to pay the medical expenses out of my pocket. They gave me a list of attorneys and I thought de Broglio sounded like the best.”

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. commissioned a panel of specialists and experts to consult with Leonard and compile the critical reports required to prove the validity of his claim. De Broglio Attorneys Inc. financed the entire claim therefore relieving Leonard of the financial burden of the claim.   

The law firm ensured that regular contact with Leonard occurred and that he remained abreast of the developments in his case. This promoted the growth of the vital trust relationship between Leonard and de Broglio Attorneys Inc.

The matter was settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the impressive amount of R1,880,946.00.

Leonard was ecstatic with his settlement and commended the de Broglio Attorneys inc. law firm, “Im really ecstatic about it. I’m really glad about the outcome and how de Broglio handled the whole case. I have another claim with another firm since 2001 and de Broglio just are much better the way they handled everything. Just the way de Broglio handled the case, I’m really glad I chose de Broglio.”
