Technician Wins R2,537,018.00 Settlement

updated: 27-May-15

33-year-old air-conditioner technician, Corben Snyman*, was involved in a motor vehicle accident where he sustained very serious injuries.

He lost consciousness in the accident and had a severe head injury and multiple severe fractures all over his body.

When he returned to work his employer suggested he make a claim against the RAF using de Broglio Inc. Corben said, “The company I used to work for when I had the accident, they referred me to you guys…so I took a chance and luckily it was for the best.”

His attorney who handled his matter for him at de Broglio Inc stated that, “the merits were complicated as the plaintiff did not see a second trailer attached to the insured driver’s truck at 05H00 in the morning. We were lucky to settle the merits at 70:30. We were able to obtain a very good offer on the client’s loss of income as he was also unable to hold down a job due to his head injury sustained and his extreme memory problems. The client was thrilled with the settlement.”

Corben also said, “I was told it would take a hell of a long time to get the settlement sorted, but through you guys that was the best service I have ever got in my whole life . I was actually meant to send you a guys an email but I am still sitting without a job so my main concern is finding a job.”

His RAF case was settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the staggering amount of R2,537,018.00.

Corben was ecstatic, “That was more than I expected. That was really more than I expected. I can smile again, at least now I can breathe, I can get my life sorted out, maybe get married, have kids whatever the case may be.”
