Mr. CR was a security officer who was a pedestrian when he was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle failed to stop and fled the scene. The claim was submitted to the Road Accident Fund and unfortunately the most they were prepared to offer was R60 000.00 in full and final settlement. We advised the client against accepting this amount and proceeded to trial. The matter was eventually settled on the day of the trial with client receiving R550 000.00 together with an undertaking to cover any future medical expenses he may incur.
