Ms. O.S was a 16 year old pedestrian. The eldest daughter with promising younger sibling. She was living in an informal settlement with no prospects of advancement. She suffered a Tibula and Fibula fracture and fracture to humerus. The RAF offered a paltry R40 000.00 which following our advise and in spite of her dire financial circumstances, she refused. We took the matter to trial and settled at R480 000.00 together with an undertaking to cover her future medical expenses, twelve times the Road Accident Fund’s offer. Our client, Ms. O.S has since stopped by for a visit to happily advise us that she has purchased a home, invested some of her funds and is so happy and grateful at the opportunity given not only for her but for her younger siblings.
