Mr. G came to South Africa in search of a better life for his family in 2010. He soon found work and became a lot more positive about life. Then disaster struck. He was involved in a head on collision with a truck. His dreams shattered in an instant as he was unable to work anymore.
He suffered from, amongst others, head injuries. Mr. G approached our offices in Pretoria and we advised him to claim against the Road Accident Fund.
We assisted him with his claim and sent him to various medical experts to determine the extent of his injuries.
Eventually, shortly before trial, the RAF agreed on the quantum of Mr. G damages as being in the vicinity of R 3.6 million rand plus all future medical costs (less apportionment due to him being partially to blame for the collision)
