DCS Attorneys - Helping you fight back

DSC Attorneys in South Africa is recognised for our persistence, and love for the law. We know that in many cases, clients are afraid to fight for what is right.

They worry about their families, their jobs and their financial status. There are so many factors that can influence your life going forward after being involved in an injury that was incurred through violence and brutality, especially if it has involved law enforcement. We are here to put your mind at ease, and to take on the case for you.

We have vast experience in dealing with personal injury cases

We know how to manage and handle these situations, whilst keeping you safe and protected. If you have been injured in a personal injury, be it an incident that involved you being hurt for no reason, let us be your protector. We have the capability to put your case together and take it to court.

We will fight for you, and get you the compensation you deserve after having endured such an unnecessary act of violence. Many cases include clients that have had to undergo medical and surgery procedures, as well as the effects of long-term damages. The emotional trauma alone can create a negative effect on your life moving forward.  In some cases, clients are unable to carry on with everyday life as they once did and suffer from a lack of income.

This is the reality of what a personal injury claim can involve. Clients should contact us as soon as possible and provide us with as much evidence as possible, this included photographs, police reports, medical and doctor notes and whatever else could help us with your case. Personal injuries are one of the highest rated offences in the country today.

Corruption from police brutality, a robbery went bad, invasion of homes and much more. There is a broad-based genre in these kinds of personal injury as well as criminal injury claims. They are almost unlimited to the type of injury. However, if you know you are a victim, and the incident was premeditated or could have been avoided, you may have a case worth fighting for.
