Small Claims Advice. How do I bring my own claim in the UK?

[email protected] +4420 7620 6265 This is a video for those who want to "Go it alone" in the courts, specifically utlising the small claims track facility to avoid expensive lawyers making it prohibitive (lawyers are not allowed in small claims track, or at least if they do they will not be paid). USUAL CAVEAT: MAKE SURE THE ADVICE I GIVE IS CURRENT. YOU CAN ALWAYS EMAIL ME ON AN ISSUE SO QUERY IF REQUIRED. 1. Costs. This is the biggest issue of course and you should know that if you are doing it yourself you are probably of a low value (under £10,000) and on the small claims track. I would estimate that for a case nearing the high end of this range (costs are on a sliding scale for most types of claims for a purely monetary remedy) then you are looking at exposure to £1,000 maximum costs if you lose. These are mostly court fees and if it is a tiny claim this goes down to as low as £100 - see EX50. Costs can also be incurred that you may have to pay for for expert (max £750) and loss of earnings for your opponent and his witnesses (£95 a day) 2. Make sure you have been genuinely wronged and you are no getting counter-claimed, for instance building works where you are a builder chasing an unpaid invoice and maybe you not have done everything right or perhaps even caused some minor damage. Consider putting it down to experience this time if it is low value. That being said, everyone may need to go to court once in their life and so see it as a educational experience and an entrepreneurial endeavour, not a grudge war. It can be cheap and easy to just bang off an N1 claim form (once you have written to them about your complaint and have been ignored) which can cost as low as £35 for a £500 claim. 3. Get it right! Make sure you complete pre-action stage properly and do not go straight to issue without a paper trail and make sure you fill in N1 correctly. If you do not you could get into trouble and if you are fighting a larger organisation they could make a strike-out application for a poorly particularised claim, for example, before the case even gets designated as "small claims" and now you are facing serious legal bills to amend your claim. The law still applies! If you make sure you have carefully filled in the N1 form you should be fine; and if there is a complex issue get a little bit of legal advice just to help with that. (Or perhaps try CAB.) 4. Be aware of various exceptions such as personal injury and tenants against landlords and non-money claims like possession claims. These claims may not fall into the standard small claims track even though they may be under £10,000. Online resources below will help you and this is all explained in court leaflets and the court rules (Civil Procedure Rules, CPR) if you do your research. 5. Legal advice? Well, the system is designed to exclude lawyers but there are companies who will help you with advice but not charge you an arm and a leg to actually represent you properly. Might be worth it if you trust them and you use them judiciously in proportion to size of claim. But obviously having a solicitor represent you in its entirety defeats the purpose as it will eat away your claim value. We may be a bit expensive as we tend to deal in more complex, higher-value claims but we are considering creating a special advice service of £100 an hour (approx). Conclusion: I claimed before I was a lawyer and found it worked well. The value was £2,000. I went to his home town where the case was transferred (as is common if your opponent is not a company). I paid a small amount of fees. He did not show up. I got my money! Remember, that the most important thing is paperwork and preparation. So before you issue you should have basically laid out exactly what the complaint is and what you want them to do to correct it and give them time to respond. Here is a list of some relevant web-sites. There are more out there: www.moneysavingexpert.com - will take your through the steps and shows you basic N1 Form to use www.citizensadvice.org.uk - they can also give basic advice www.gov.uk/make-court-claim-for-money/going-to-court - basic government leaflet on going to court www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/part27 - if you want to know the REAL detail and be sure of your ground.

How to Sue in Small Claims Court
 
01:48
Watch more How to Understand Legal Issues videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/259656-How-to-Sue-in-Small-Claims-Court If you’re having trouble collecting money from someone, consider using the court system. Step 1: Fill out the proper form Fill out the proper form. Forms vary from state by state, so inquire at your local court. Step 2: Wait on the defendant’s response Wait on the defendant’s response. The defendant is the person you’re suing, and they may have up to 30 days to respond. Step 3: Anticipate a response Anticipate a response. You, the plaintiff, may receive payment from the defendant and can fill out a dismissal form to end the proceedings – but if not, forge ahead. Step 4: Prepare your case Prepare your case. Gather your information and evidence. Step 5: Practice what you'll say Practice what you'll say. Clearly and concisely, state what the problem is and how much you are requesting, including any court costs. Step 6: Brush up on court etiquette Brush up on court etiquette. Remember to address the judge as "your honor," dress appropriately, and stand when you present your case - and don't address the defendant directly. Step 7: Be confident Be confident. You can now present your case in the best way possible. Tip In small claims court, you’re only awarded money. So if you need help with other matters, ask the clerk to point you to the right court. Step 8: Be tenacious Be tenacious. If the defendant doesn’t pay within the allotted time period, you may need a lawyer’s assistance – the court will not actually collect any money owed you. Did You Know? Did you know? In 2002, New Yorker Caesar Barber filed a lawsuit against several fast food restaurants, blaming them for causing his obesity. The lawsuit never made it to court.

So You Won Your Case...Now What? (Collecting Your Small Claims Judgment, Part I)
 
05:02
The "Collecting Your Small Claims Judgment" video series, presented by the Orange County Small Claims Advisory Program and the Legal Aid Society of Orange County, sets forth guidelines for the Small Claims collections process. The series begins by discussing Fair Debt Collection laws. It also defines concepts and terms used in the Small Claims process to assist the knowledge of the average Small Claims litigant. Furthermore, the series discusses common FAQs such as what to do when a debtor moves, what to do if your debtor has a specific type of license, and how to recover post-judgment costs in addition to the judgment. This series outlines the process of all methods of collection that a judgment creditor, or plaintiff, in a successful Small Claims action can use to satisfy the judgment. This series includes methods to collect from either individuals or businesses. These methods include wage garnishment, bank levy, property liens, the Debtor's Examination, collecting from a judgment debtor's spouse, executing a till tap, and executing a keeper. This series was created in October 2012. Any changes in the law after this date are not reflected here. For more information regarding Small Claims actions or the O.C.

Small Claims #2 Defendant Claims
 
05:01
I am a retired clerk from the Court having worked in the Civil -- Small Claims department for 15 years. I not an attorney, wanted to get that out of the way to start this off. Connect with me on my Facebook fan page - http://www.facebook.com/pambivans - Click on the like for updates! If you feel that the Plaintiff filed the claim in the wrong court you will need to follow the instructions for a Venue Challenge. From the first video on the Plaintiff's Claim, I wanted to make sure you know that the process is the same. You can go back to that video here and in the description you will find the links to help sits and the blog post. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iy0s6M6byEo Basic outline on a Defendant's Claim: A Defendant's Claim is what most people would consider a cross complaint in Civil Law to be. Defendant's Claims need to be filed in a timely manner. What I mean by this is -- when you are served with a Plaintiff's Claim and Order, you have only a few days in order to file and serve your claim. (Be sure to read the Plaintiff's Claim for your guidelines on this) When you have more than one Plaintiff, you will need to serve all of them, even if it is a husband and wife, they are individuals in the eyes of the Court. Steps on filing a Defendant's Claim: 1. Read through the Plaintiff's Claim you were served with. 2. If you feel that the Plaintiff (s) owe you money on the same issue, get the paper work on filing your Defendant's Claim. 3. Fill out the filing forms by either printing clearly, typing, or on a computer and print out the Defendant's Claim form. Make sure all the parties stay the same, no addition or subtraction. 4. Make at least one copy. 5. Take the Original and copy to the Court that the suite was filled in. (you should be able to file via fax) 6. If you are unable to pay for the filling, ask for a Fee Waiver and file it with your Claim. 7. Have all of the Plaintiff's served with a copy of your Claim. 8. Make sure the Court receives an original Proof of Service for each Plaintiff. 9. Be in the Court room on time, with all evidence and witnesses'. 10. Your Notice to Entry of Judgment will be mailed to you, so make sure the Clerk has your proper address, if it is not already on the Plaintiff's Claim.

Small Claims: Claimant's Response to Defence & Counterclaim
 
17:40
[email protected] +4420 7620 6265 This is the first in a series of blogs on the Small Claims Court in England & Wales, in which Redwood Legal provide free insights and practical tips and information on how to bring your own small claim, without the need for a lawyer. If you need our advice or assistance or input at any time - then we can provide it for a reduced fee. That is how our business model works for this project. We are also hoping of course to generate a client base for other other legal needs. Today we deal with how to respond to a Defence & Counterclaim. You are the Claimant and you are faced with an opponent who seems determined to cause you problems. They are not just avoiding paying. As for all our vlogs, we usual actual cases that we are currently running to make sure it is the "real deal". We have found this is better than theoretical knowledge. So in this case you have a Claimant who is chasing unpaid invoices for curtains she has made for an interior designer who has an end client that she has tried to please too hard and is now making our client pay for her, "oversell". (See the video for the brief facts.) The claim value is no more than £750 but the trouble now is that the interior designer has replied to the claim with a defence AND a counterclaim, saying that the invoices were not paid because not only was the one done improperly, but she had to spend more money on repairing the damage. Our client was about to send a long document (in effect a witness statement) in reply to the Defendants long letter reply to the claim, attached to her defence. The issue here is clarity. Sending this long document would have been a mistake. This is where you have to, unfortunately, apply some legal knowledge. Now, it's a strange anomaly that there is this small claims system that excludes lawyers but you are nevertheless expected to know the law! Ignorance of the law is no defence! What on earth do you do? You do not know the law of contract or negligence. Well, you make sure you have separated the issues and been crystal clear about what your response is and you have NOT written a long, emotional response providing evidence. Evidence is for later - the court will direct you nearer the trial on exchange of evidence. For now you just want to focus on clearly defining your case and rejecting your opponent's. So what should you do? Well, in this case, separate out the issues. 1. The Defence - the curtains WERE correct as they were what was ordered. The specification was met. The Defendant asked for a thin hem (not interlined) and this was precisely what was delivered. So the Claimant denies the defence. 2. The counterclaim is stoutly denied as any damage only came about as the result of the wrong specification that the Defendant had contracted for. However, even if there was any fault with the Claimant, the Defendant failed to give an opportunity to the Claimant to remedy the error. This is called duty to mitigate. Further, great expense was incurred by the Defendant, necessarily so. That is then all you need. The court will then receive your CLEAR response. Judges like clarity. If you bombard the court with all manner of random evidence in your outrage at your Defendant's conduct, you play into their hands. And give them ammunition. The correct place for this is your witness statement and exchange down the track. So, for example, the fact that in this case the Defendant was still using the Claimant's work in their showroom gives the lie to their case- is a matter for nearer trial once the court has sent you directions for trial and exchange of witness statement and disclosure of documentary evidence. Do not be indignant - just be clear. Crystal Clear. And finally, your response to their defence is the REPLY - and your response to their counterclaim is your DEFENCE to the counterclaim, for a claim that they are now bringing against you. Be sure to think clearly and separate these two elements out when your draft your response and sent it into the court. And title it "REPLY AND DEFENCE TO COUNTERCLAIM" if you like. 11 May 2016

How do you collect a small claims judgment?
 
02:47
How do you collect a small claims judgment? Attorney Tom Olsen: In Florida, small claims court is for claims under $5,000. The clerks will give you the forms and help you through the process. Getting a judgment against someone is usually the easy part. A judgment is simply a piece of paper that says somebody owes you money. The hard part is trying to collect the judgment. The judge who granted your final judgment in small claims court, when you did it without a lawyer, is obligated to help you collect it. The judge will be obligated to send a notice out to the defendant ordering the defendant to come to court with copies of bank records, deeds etc. and the judge will help you go through it and figure which assets you can go after. The judges don't necessarily volunteer this information to you, so you’ve got to be the one to go the clerks and say “Look, I need the judge's help to collect this in small claims court judgment”. When you find out, for example, the person has a bank account, the judge might help you garnish that bank account. If they find out that you're employed and you meet the criteria, you can garnish their wages. In the State of Florida, you cannot put a lien against somebody's home. Even if they have a beautiful home, free and clear and paid for, you can't touch it. So you have to look for other real estate, like investment property or rental property. Remember that, for a married couple, if you sue just the husband you cannot touch anything that's owned by the husband and wife. If you sue just the wife, you cannot touch anything owned by the husband and wife. So, for a married couple, you need to sue them both of them to be able to collect something. But, all in all, it's hard, difficult and sometimes impossible to collect judgments in Florida. You can also talk to your accountant or CPA about taking a tax deduction for uncollected judgments. I think the IRS requires that you put a reasonable effort into trying to collect it, but if you're unable to collect it, it can be a tax deduction for you. Check it out with your accountant or CPA.

Small Claims Process for Defendants
 
01:30
Did you receive a small claims complaint and court summons in the mail? If so, you have been sued and you are a defendant in a lawsuit. The notice and summons contain the day, time, and location of your trial. You risk losing the case if you do not appear on the date and time listed. The complaint contains the claims against you and the amount of money the plaintiff requests. You will have an opportunity to respond and to present evidence and witnesses at trial. If you are an individual, and not a business entity, then you do not need an attorney, but you can bring one at your own cost. If you have a claim for money damages against the plaintiff, you can file a counterclaim. Your counterclaim is limited to money only, up to $3,000, and must be filed at least 7 days before trial. The filing fee is $20. If you want to meet with the plaintiff before trial to resolve the case, you can use the court's free dispute resolution service. If you cannot make it to your trial date, you can request a continuance to postpone the trial. Any party can ask for one continuance, for up to 30 days. You must submit your continuance request at least 10 days before the trial date. Your written request must contain the case number, party names, date and time of your trial, and number of days that you are requesting. You can either fax or mail your continuance request to the small claims department.

The Revised Small Claims Procedure was developed by the Supreme Court to provide a simple, speedy, and inexpensive means of dispute settlement in courts. The procedure provides simple forms, dispute settlement procedures, and a one-hearing rule. It simplifies court procedures permitting a more informal hearing, providing “lay person-oriented” forms throughout the process, and dispensing with the intervention of lawyers.

Troubleshooter Alert: Difficulty collecting judgement from small claims court
 
02:41
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Many people who believe they've been wronged turn to the courts for help. In Ohio and Indiana people can sue in small claims court for up to $6,000; $1,500 in Kentucky. When people sue in small claims court they don't need to hire a lawyer. But often times if even if people win their case they may have a hard time collecting their money. That's what Bonita Miller of Bond Hill said she found, “I was baking a pizza and it set off my carbon monoxide alarm. I couldn't rest my carbon monoxide alarm." The fire department came and turned off the gas line to her stove. Then she called a repairman who replaced a part. Miller said, “I paid him $240 and he left and I didn't bother to use the stove." She said she was afraid to use it but finally tried it again. After Miller used the stove again once again it didn't work correctly. The alarms went off and this time she called Duke Energy. They came out, disconnected the gas line and then said there was still a big problem. Miller called that repairman again but, “He was in here for less than half an hour. He didn't stay long enough to see the problems that I said that I was finding." Fearing carbon monoxide, she didn't use the stove for seven months. When she did, there was still a problem, so she called a different repairman who replaced the control panel. The first repairman wouldn't refund her money because his warranty expired. So she sued in small claims court and won a default judgement when the repairman didn't show up in court. But she hasn't been able to collect so she complained to the court but was told, “The judge has given you the judgement. They said we do absolutely nothing. You have to do what you can to get your money back." Since no court will automatically force someone to pay, what can people do if they find themselves in this situation? Well, there are several things people can do to try to collect through the court. First, file for a personal judgement debtor exam hearing. This is where the person who owes the money is compelled to appear in court so people can ask about their assets like bank accounts and bank balances. Then people can garnish the accounts, or even paychecks, in order to collect money. People can also file to seize their personal property through what's called a live execution where a bailiff seizes their property. If the debt involves a motor vehicle accident people can have their driver's license suspended.

What if I lose my Small Claims or District Court collection lawsuit?
 
03:33
http://www.alabamaconsumer.com/2015/03/what-if-i-lose-my-small-claims-or-district-court-collection-lawsuit/ Anytime a trial happens, someone will win and someone will lose. So what do you do if you lose? Option one is to work things out with the collection lawyer. Come to a settlement. The advantage is you are done with the case once you pay. The disadvantage is you have a judgment against you. Option two is to appeal. You don't have to prove you have a good case to appeal. Instead you have an automatic right to appeal. This is because you (and the company that sued you) have a constitutional right to a trial by jury. But since there is no right to a trial by jury in small claims (or district court), you must have a right to appeal to circuit court where we can have jury trials. 14 days to appeal -- pay a fee -- and when you file the right paperwork you will have the case appealed to circuit court. The case starts over -- "de novo" -- as if it was originally filed in circuit court. The circuit court judge doesn't really care who won or lost in the lower court (small claims or district). Appeals are rare as typically the same result will happen in circuit court as district or small claims court.

What if I win my Small Claims or District Court collection case?
 
04:42
http://www.alabamaconsumer.com/2015/03/what-if-i-win-my-small-claims-or-district-court-collection-case/ So you won the collection case filed against you by Cavalry, LVNV, Midland, Portfolio, etc -- now what does this mean? First, congratulations for winning! Second, remember the losing side can always appeal although this is not very common. Third, winning your case normally means you do not owe the debt. Fourth, since you don't owe the debt, there can't be credit reporting by the debt collector saying you owe the debt (since you had a judge say you don't owe the debt). Fifth, if there was credit reporting at any time by the debt collector on this "debt" (the one you don't owe) then this normally violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Sixth, the lawsuit itself against you may be in violation of the FDCPA as you don't owe the debt but you got sued for owing a debt. Seventh, the debt collector can't ever collect this debt against you again as you don't owe it. Eighth, if the debt collector ever sells or transfers the debt, this will normally violate the FDCPA and the new debt collector will be violating the FDCPA as there will be illegal debt collection on a debt you don't owe. Finally, if any of the above has happened, you need to look at whether you can sue under the FDCPA, perhaps under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), malicious prosecution, etc. We often file these lawsuits in Federal Court but there are some strict time limits involved so get in touch with us if you are interested in talking. If you sue, this tends to make the debt collector leave you alone. They may owe you money damages and you can make sure this comes off of your credit report. If you have questions about your options when sued in Alabama (you have as many as five -- http://www.alabamaconsumer.com/2014/09/5-options-sued-debt-collector-alabama/), or if you want to talk about winning your lawsuit, please feel free to get in touch with us by calling us at 205-879-2447 or contacting us through our website www.AlabamaConsumer.com.

Taking your Car Accident Case to a Small Claims Court
 
04:26
Every single state has a court where you can file car accident claims. This is just one form of Alternate Dispute Resolution that you can use. Going to a small claims court may be ideal if the insurance company doesn’t offer you a settlement that you consider to be fair. You can take the insurance company to court as long as the settlement amount is within the state’s dollar limit. You may be surprised to know that some small claims courts offer settlements that are so valuable that you would be surprised. In some cases, claimants consider claiming less than they think they should ask for so they stay within the limit Is it Easy to File a Claim in a Small Claims Court? Yes, it is very easy to file a claim. You can typically fill in a form that you can get from a Court Clerk, alternatively, you can always file one online. You will have to pay a small fee so you can submit your case but if you win the case the other driver will have to pay you back. The next step is to send the court papers to the other driver. For a small fee, a local constable or sheriff can deliver the papers. When court papers are delivered the action is known as a ‘Service of process’. If you win your case you will receive the money back. Are the Pre-trial Procedures Complicated? No, small claims courts exist in order to make the claims process easy for everyone. This gives people the ability to represent themselves should they wish to. While there are some pre-trial procedures involved such as sending the defense some written questions (Known as ‘Interrogatories’) which must be answered under oath, they are not hard to understand. If the defense sends you some interrogatories you will have to answer them as you may be penalized if you don’t, and your case could even be dismissed. How can you Win your Case in a Small Claims Court? Every single car accident case involves 2 questions: • Which driver caused the accident? • What injuries/damages resulted from the car accident? The first question relates to the issue of liability and the second to damages. In a small claims court you first have to prove liability and secondly, you have to prove the damages in order to win the case. If you are unable to prove liability you will not win your case, even if you have suffered from injuries. This is why it’s vital that you prepare your evidence so that it shows the defense is liable and caused your injuries. You will have to testify as part of your case and if you find that the defense questions liability you should get in touch with any witnesses to the accident. If there were no witnesses you should be prepared to show the court how the accident occurred, and how the accident is consistent with the other evidence or common sense. Please note that the sections of the vehicles that were damaged, or the part of the road where the accident took place can be used as evidence to show how the accident occurred. You may need to prepare diagrams and photographs to use as evidence. If you turn up to court prepared you may find that the judgment is ruled in your favor. Winning the Case and Being Paid It’s likely that if you win the case you will be paid a settlement. If the other driver had some car insurance then their insurance company is likely to pay the judgment. If it turns out that the other driver did not have any insurance at the time of the accident you may not receive any settlement. If the driver does not volunteer to pay the settlement out of their own pocket you could use some procedures that the court has to help you collect judgment. You may learn about attaching, which is commonly known as ‘Garnishing’ this involves taking a sum from the other driver’s wages or their assets to pay the settlement. Can you Represent yourself? Yes, you will have to pay a filing fee, even though it is a small one. This fee allows the court to serve papers on the defense which means you can take them to court. The judge in a small claims court will hear each party’s side of the story before making a decision on the case right there and then. This means that if you are unable to agree on a settlement with the other driver’s car insurance company you should not be afraid to take the case to a small claims court.

What happens in small claims court?
 
01:41
What happens in small claims court? Attorney Tom Olsen: Small claims court is really about people going in and doing thing themselves. The clerks will give them the forms and tell them how to do it step by step. And again, it's for matters that are under $5,000. Some people may still be intimidated by going to small claims court and thinking, “I have to put on a trial in front of the judge”. But, the good news is that in any action, especially in small claims court, before you ever see a judge, they make you use a mediator. They give you an opportunity to work it out, not in front of a judge, but just a professional mediator. Just an opportunity to talk back and forth between the people and try to see if they can bring a resolution. Attorney Rob Solomon: That's right. In small claims court that is standard operating procedure. You literately get what's called a court date, but really it's a mediation date. You go in, you see if you can mediate it, and if you walk out of that mediation and there's what we call an impasse and you couldn't mediate it, that's when you get your real court date. So, I always tell people when they go to mediation, I don't care what their complaint is, I don't care how righteous they feel they are, money in hands is worth way more than the risk and the uncertainty and the collection of money six months later. Mediating things is a great place to get some money, to compromise. Compromise has got a negative connotation, but not when it comes to mediation. Get what you can and avoid, if you can, the risk of further litigation.
