updated: 21-Mar-16

There are many law firms that process claims against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) but only one leader in this field of law and that is de Broglio Attorneys Inc. With over two decades of experience in personal injury and RAF claims, this esteemed law firm is well equipped to handle a vast variety of claims ranging from serious brain injuries to multiple fractures. 

Sara Molepi* was just a child when she was injured in a motor vehicle accident. Her mother was referred to de Broglio Attorneys Inc. by a family member. She said, “Someone we know told us to call de Broglio. It was a family member and they took us to the law firm in Parkwood.” They consulted with de Broglio Attorneys Inc. who agreed to take on her claim against the RAF.

In the accident Sara had been walking home with her friend along the side of the road when a vehicle had swerved off the road onto the pavement and had hit her.  She suffered multiple fractures to both her legs and underwent surgery to both legs. She was hospitalised for six weeks after the accident and had to have her legs in plaster of Paris casts for approximately three months.

de Broglio Attorneys Inc. handled her claim from the beginning until settlement. They financed her claim and arranged all of the medico legal expert appointments which are crucial in any RAF claim. The high-status law firm ensured that Sara was always kept abreast of developments in her claim and always received regular updates notifying and informing her of the current status of her claim. This gave her peace of mind by assuring her that by choosing de Broglio Attorneys Inc. to represent her in her claim, she had ensured her claim would be successful in the end. 

Sara’s RAF claim was settled in finality in the North Gauteng High Court for the excellent amount of R1,077,990.00. Sara reported that she was extremely happy with the result that had been obtained for her and she said, “I am so happy with this. It’s been hard but now we can move on with life.”
