Mr. M. was a 20 year old pedestrian when he was struck by a motor vehicle. He sustained head injuries. The Road Accident Fund was initially only prepared to offer R14 000.00 in full and final settlement of his case. Campbell Attorneys proceeded to trial in the matter. Before trial, the Road Accident Fund agreed to settle liability with a 20% apportionment against client. The Road Accident Fund then turned around and tried to revoke their settlement which application they subsequently abandoned at court. Despite continuous attempts to have the Road Accident Fund provide client with a fair and just offer, none was forthcoming and subsequently the trial ran. After a three day trial, the court awarded client an amount of R1 431 000.000 after taking into account the 20% apportionment against client.
