De Broglio Attorneys Inc. specialise in personal injury claims, including claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF). With over 20 year’s legal experience under their belt, their knowledge and expertise reign supreme in the industry. The law firm’s reputation is undisputable and prospective clients are enticed to use the firm knowing that they will receive spectacular service and results. De Broglio Attorneys Inc. shone brightly when the fantastic settlement of R1,545,089.00 for one of their client’s claims was awarded.

The client, Kennedy Benner*, was the driver of a vehicle involved in a head on collision with a vehicle that was travelling in the opposite direction and swerved into his lane. Kennedy sustained several debilitating injuries such as internal injuries, a broken femur, broken bones in his right hand, a fractured left wrist, as well as, six months in a wheel chair due to the damage of his femur. His life was dramatically and brutally affected as a result of someone else’s negligence.

Kennedy said, “I heard about you guys through the adverts I heard on the radio, and the way you set it out then my dad said let’s use these guys. Because I was with an attorney beforehand and they didn’t do much before I heard your advert on the radio. After I’ve seen you guys that’s where everything started and kicked off.”

Medico legal experts appointed by De Broglio Attorneys consulted with Kennedy and compiled the reports required to prove the legitimacy of his claim against the RAF. With the support and financing by De Broglio Attorneys Inc., the claim’s costs were no longer a burden for Kennedy and his focus could therefore be on his recovery and health, whereas the law firm’s focus was on ensuring Kennedy was compensated fairly.

De Broglio Attorneys Inc. is committed to providing regular updates to their clients and Kennedy was impressed with the efficiency with which his claim was handled. This promoted a belief and trust in de Broglio Attorneys Inc. leaving Kennedy with the satisfaction and security that his claim was in the best legal hands in South Africa.

The matter was settled in the North Gauteng High Court for the extraordinary amount of R1,545,089.00.

Kennedy was elated with his settlement and praised the de Broglio law firm, “I feel it is good considering the difficulty of the case and the matter because some things were not in my favour. You guys worked around that and the way you did the reports and presented the case, I think it was good what we got.”
