Young man beats the Road Accident Fund

updated: 30-Jul-14

de Broglio Inc enjoyed another victory against the Road Accident Fund this time for a young client who endured a broken leg and a head injury. They settled the claim for R903,235.00. An excellent settlement amount. 

Hans Strijdom* was 20 years of age at the time of the accident. He had been travelling in a motor vehicle as a passenger when the driver of his vehicle collided with another vehicle that was making an illegal u-turn in front of them. There was nothing Hans could do to avoid the accident. Unfortunately, as the word accident implies, there was nothing the driver of his vehicle could do either to avoid the collision. And so, Hans’s life was about to change forever. 

Hans was bleeding from his mouth and had bruises on his face. He sustained a head injury and broke his left leg in 3 places. The leg was operated on and became infected. 

He elected to contact de Broglio Inc for some expert advice on what to do if he wanted to submit a claim against the RAF for his losses. 

He consulted with de Broglio Inc about his accident and his injuries, and how they had affected him so far. de Broglio Inc committed to assist him in suing the RAF for damages and losses. 

Hans was kept updated throughout the claim process on new developments in his claim and sent medico-legal reports for his perusal. He knew he could contact the firm if he ever had any questions or needed anything. Someone at de Broglio Inc would always be available to assist him. 

de Broglio Inc is a technologically advanced law firm with client relations as a key founding stone of the practice. Clients of the firm repeatedly compliment them on their timeous updates and well-informed progress reports which they have the pleasure of receiving. 

Hans was another satisfied client of  de Broglio Inc. He was content he had chosen them to represent him in what was a very important activity in his life. 

On the day of the trial Hans’s claim was settled for R903. 235.00. A victorious achievement fuelled by the strength and fight of the team at de Broglio Inc.
