TESTIMONIALS


Dear Pippa,
RAF CLAIM


Thank you very much for your swift response and the wonderful service and support which you have rendered in this matter.

Kindest regards,

Issy.


Dear All at RBP,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for all your effort in handling my matter and I am grateful to God for the outcome. I am really relieved and I can now really close this chapter of my life and move on. I just wanted to record my thank you to you, because it was mainly your hard work that took us this far and for that I really thank you.

One request though, as you may have seen in the News the requirement for the Abridged Birth Certificates when travelling with minors, would you be so kind and give me the ones you applied for. It would be handy to have them as I assume you will no longer have use for them. I am speaking under correction though. Home Affairs is a night mare and I am happy to avoid going there if I can.

I am sort of hassled with exams right now thus I am writing to you.  I am looking forward to hearing from you on this one.

Kind Regards

Dear  ---,

Many times people, myself included, write when service experienced is below expectation. I guess it is only fair to also write when service received exceeds expectation!

On behalf of Margaret and myself, I would like to thank you all at RBP for the exceptional and extremely professional manner in which you handled Margaret’s case. We were kept informed of the process along the way and the final Court Day went very smoothly.   

She is overjoyed with the settlement she will receive from the RAF and I know that many times over the past 5 years she was ready to “give up”. Were it not for the support and encouragement she received from you to continue, she would not have received any  compensation.
My sincere thanks.

Kind regards

Pat
Chief Operations Officer


 

Dear All,

I know i was a difficult client but you were patient and explained the matters in a professional manner, thank-you for that and thank-you for the fight you put up for me with regard to the smaller matter, much appreciated.
Kind Regards
Ilana .


 

Dear Mariangela

Dear Gina,
 
Thank you for the way in which Bobroff & Partners Inc. and in particular yourself handled my case.
You were always very professional and your secretary, Thuli was always very polite and friendly.
 
This was an extremely emotional time for me since the accident but I am grateful that you have handled it with the dignity it deserves  and much sensitivity.
 
Please convey my gratitude to advocate Khan and everybody else involved.  I am pleased that it is finally done.
 
Kind regards

DEAR VIVIENNE,

 

I AM SORRY TO HEAR OF YOUR DISTRESSING EXPERIENCE .

PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS ARE STRONGLY CONTESTED BY THE INSURERS OF BUSINESSES SUCH AS PLACECOL.

I BELIEVE YOU HAVE A CLAIM AND THAT THE WAIVER CLAUSE WILL NOT SUCCEED IN TERMS OF A HIGH COURT DECISION OUR OFFICE RECENTLY OBTAINED .

HOWEVER THE VALUE OF YOUR CLAIM WILL BE RATHER SMALL --PROBALLY LESS THAN R10000.00 AND DOES NOT WARRANT THE COST AND RISK OF LITIGATION .

I SUGGEST YOU APPROACH THE CLERK OF THE SMALL CLAIMS COURT NEAREST WHERE YOU LIVE OR WORK AND SUE THEM FOR ALL THE MEDICAL COSTS TO DATE (INCLUDING WHAT THE MED AID PAID ) AND ANY BALANCE UP TO R12000.00 FOR PAIN AND SUFFERING AND DISFIGURMENT .

THIS COURT IS FREE.

 

BEST WISHES,

 

RONALD BOBROFF

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello Darren

 

Just to confirm that the deposited sum is reflecting on Mark’s account since yesterday and it should be available shortly.

 

Thank you for your diligent action in finalising this matter – it is a huge relief and we finally have the opportunity for a new start.

Many thanks to the whole team at Bobroff & partners

Dear Ronald

It is great to hear from you, no matter if its early or late! 

The claim you managed to win definitely had a huge impact on how my life turned out after the accident.  No matter what one says, having the funds to do what you need to do definitely makes life easier – disability or not.  I was able to go to University and pay for an interpreter to help me understand lectures and get myself qualified as a teacher. 

From then on, armed with 2 University degrees, opportunities were endless and i progressed from a teacher to Deputy Principal (at a deaf school in Durban) and now to Principal of St Vincent (the school I was attending at the time of the claim) across the road from your offices – its a small world!  As young as I was, your presence in our lives had a huge impact and I remembered you – at the age of 7/8 one doesn’t remember people well but in your case I did!  You did good!

I will be in touch to organise a visit very soon.

Hugs

Ingrid

Dog Bite Claims

The most important element of dog bite claims is to establish ownership of the dog and the ability of such owner to pay the claim and/or the availability and applicability of public liability insurance as without a pocket to meet the claim there is no point in claiming.

Most dog bites occur on residential and agricultural premises where vicious dogs are kept for security purposes. This has increased dramatically in SA given the overwhelming prevalence of crime in this Country.

These claims are referred to as Pauparian actions where the owner of the dog or other domestic animal has strict liability once it is proved that the domestic animal behaved contra sui generis – contrary to its kind.

This means for example that a house dog is accustomed to the presence of people and would not normally be expected to bite. The situation would be difference in the case of a wild animal and the test there was whether the owner was negligent in not accommodating the animal where harm would not be caused to other persons.

The most common defence to such claims is that the victim entered the premises unlawfully or provoked the animal, and it is therefore important to gather evidence as to whether the animal in question had previously attacked people and which would negate such defences.
Damages claimable are:
  • Past hospital / medical expenses;
  • Future hspital / medical expenses;
  • Past and future loss of earnings;
  • General damages for pain & suffering.
