Discovery is ripping off its members - fees are too high and service is low

Sadly it is the less fortunate who suffer at the hands of the likes of firm Bobroff. Our domestic was involved in a taxi accident and we were advised to contact Bobroff on her behalf to institute a RAF claim. This was in 2002 and the matter is still unsettled with the Law Society of the Northern Priovinces now apparently trying to get information from an employee of Bobroff who he says was negligent in his approach to the matter. No matter, our dear domestic, who is unable to work reguilarly asd a result of the accident, receives no compensation for her injuries. I have no time for the Bobroff father and son!!

Thanks heavens Discovery Health is doing something about Bobroff instead of waiting for the limp-wristed law society. A private striking-off application is not without precedent.

I am sure that Discovery Health’s 2.4m members will feel good about bankrolling the litigation. Traditionally, the offending practitioner is ordered by the court to pay the applicant's costs on an attorney-and-client scale. Hopefully Discovery Health will get their money back. If not, they can perhaps book it to corporate social investment.
