  1. Thanks Andyorch, I will file the witness statement as is today so that it is done on time and attach the NOD and Consent Order as well. I have just received the following which I have replied to and awaiting their call... Thank you for your email. I appreciate your apprehension in wanting to get the matter sorted, however, the letters were only sent to the Court 10 days ago. From dealing with the Courts every day, it will take them at least another few weeks to action any correspondence sent to them. We have agreed a Consent Order whereby the Claim is going to be dismissed and also filed a Notice of Discontinuance. The Claimant have absolutely no intention of continuing proceedings, and if they did, you have a signed Consent Order and Notice of Discontinuance showing that an agreement has been reached whereby proceedings have been dismissed. I hope this is of some assistance, however, if you forward me your telephone number, I will call you to discuss further.
  2. I have just spoken to the County Court and they have still not received the Notice of Discontinuance from Drydens. Apparently the NOD couldn't be read or printed by the court so Drydens assured me that it had been put in the post. The court have rechecked their post and have they asked me to contact them Drydens directly which I have just done. Everything is business as usual with the court and they have said that the witness statement needs to still be filed by 4pm tomorrow, which unfortunately is the day of my son's funeral. I have been asked to send this over today as I am unable to tomorrow. Please could somebody check that the statement is ok to send? Thanks Witness statement - Defendant REDACTED.pdf From Drydens last week... Good afternoon I can confirm, that the Consent Order and Notice of Discontinuance was sent to the Court via email on 10 January 2022. The Court advised that they were unable to print the documents and asked that they be resent by alternative means. As such, we printed and posted the same and this was forwarded to the Court on 10 January 2022. I would imagine that they will receive the same and action mid next week. I trust this is of assistance.
  3. Another update..... Dear Madam Please see attached as required. I have countersigned the consent order and forwarded to the Court for their approval.

  4. Thanks for the heads up Is the statement ok as is or does it need tweaking?...just in case as I don't trust Drydens one bit! It may have bits missing or parts to be removed and I would like it perfect and ready to send if they decide to pull a fast one. Thanks again
  5. Hi again, I'm a bit nervous of calling them on the phone as other times have not gone well so I have posed the question on email. I will put a hard copy in the post today as well. I am about to send the following: - Dear Sir, Thank you for your email. Please find the Consent Order attached. I will also put a hard copy in the post. Are you able to issue and send a copy of the N279 over to me? Kind regards, * Thank you dx100uk and Andyorch and for all of your help. I will get a donation over to CAG very soon as I couldn't have done this without you both
  6. Hi, So that will be the end of it all? No NOD though. If this is the end of it and it won't be reopened?
  7. UPDATE THIS MORNING I received a consent order - can someone explain? Thanks Proposed Consent Order REDACTED.pdf
  8. Hi, Please could you check my witness statement? A week before Christmas my son was knocked down and killed by a taxi driver whilst crossing a road. He is being charged with death by dangerous driving. I have had my radiotherapy treatment put back a month and put on strong medication. The court has been informed by my cancer nurse to postpone this case as I am not in a good way right now. I have received a letter dated last month from the court that the judge may consider an extension to file my documents but not heard anything yet. I managed to file the two deferment letters (to rely on) with the court as I had already prepared ahead of this. My problem now is the witness statement. I thought it had to be filed in February but it has to be done by 21st January which is the same day as my son's funeral. I have managed to knock up a witness statement today but I am not sure it it is any good as to be honest my mind is not really with it. I would like to get this in within the next day or two so I can get on with funeral arrangements and the legal stuff that has been thrown my way concerning the accident. It is all a bit too much right now to deal with and I feel I need to get this done and dusted to enable me to grieve and get myself through the funeral, as well enough for the next lot of treatment. If you could have a look at the statement and throw me a few pointers I would be so grateful. I don't want to give up with this and let those bastards win! Witness statement - Defendant REDACTED.pdf
  9. I received this from Drydens, where he reasserts that the statute barred date runs from the default notice date and not the date of the last deferment. Can you clarify?response to defence dec REDACTED.pdf
  10. Thanks DX. The only documents I have are the last deferment request and the last deferment acknowledgment received. I can't think of anything else. I will get these prepared.
  11. Referring to paragraph 6... 'By 7th January 2022 the DEFENDANT must Send to the Court and to the CLAIMANT copies of all documents he intends to rely upon at the final hearing. These must be in a bundle with each page clearly numbered. The DEFENDANT MUST bring the originals of those documents to the final hearing.' Please could you tell me what the court is expecting me to send? I presume this will include the last deferment request and also the last deferment acknowledgment received. Is there anything else? Thanks
  12. UPDATE: Received 'Notice of allocation to small claims (hearing)' on Friday. Could somebody explain 4. please? notice of allocation to the small claims track (hearing) REDACTED.pdf
  13. Hi, This is the latest from Drydens... Dear Madam Please see attached the Claimant’s N180 as required. Whilst we believe that the outstanding debt is due and owing, and are prepared to proceed to the Small Claims Hearing, we are prepared to work with you in order to reach an amicable solution away from the Court. We invite you to make an offer of payment, which if accepted can be agreed by way of a Tomlin Order. this is a formal agreement which ensures Judgment is not obtained so long as payments are made and maintained. This will also save further time and costs for all parties. Should you be interested in taking this route, please contact us by return. Kind regards Before they were insisting I owed them money, they now seem to be open to offers. Is this normal that they are now trying to go for mediation, knowing that I refused mediation on my N180? N180 drydens redacted.pdf
  14. Yes, everything from Drydens has been via email (except the latest begging letter) so will email them then at the same address. Thanks
  15. Thanks, I've already filled in this form a while back and had it ready to send, but not sure whether or not the copy to Drydens can be emailed instead of posting to save on postage
