AC De Sousa Attorneys is a firm with over 20 years’ experience in personal injury matters, both nationally and internationally. We strive to make a difference in people's lives, in situations when they desperately need help. We pride ourselves in seeking solutions to our clients’ problems that are innovative, brave and groundbreaking. We do not accept that injustice can ever be part of our law and where we have encountered such injustice, we have changed the law, as in the case of Da Silva v Road Accident Fund. We do not settle for mediocrity and ensure that our clients receive the maximum amount of compensation that our law allows.
We understand that our clients find themselves at a particularly vulnerable situation when claiming compensation and for that reason we are completely transparent, allowing our clients access to information at any point in time. Our approach is one of consultation with clients, providing them with all the information they will need to make difficult decisions.
We realize most of our clients either do not have the funds to litigate or simply cannot afford to invest their savings in litigation. We take all matters on a contingency basis and firmly adhere to the provisions of the Contingency Fee Agreements Act. We also go one step further, in that we pay for all the costs associated with obtaining expert medical opinions and the costs of advocates. If, for whatever reason, the matter is not successful or is withdrawn, we do not charge our clients for the costs of the expert opinions or advocates. Furthermore, on successful completion of the matter our clients do not pay for the expert opinions or the costs of advocates, as these are paid for by the losing party. All our clients pay, are the fee in terms of the Contingency Act, with us there are no hidden costs.
