I filed a small claims case online, where there is a character limit to explain the particulars of the case (1080 characters to be exact) I was dismayed to find that when I had finally finished, part of my claim had been cut off. I rang the MCOL helpline asking if this was a problem that would affect future court action, and the man on the other end of the phone told me not to worry, this was for the benefit only of the defendant, so that they would know what exactly I was claiming for, and that if the case went to court, I would have the chance to send in additional documents explaining my case fully then. However I've now found out that there was a chance to send in particulars of claim, but it was 14 days after initially beginning the claim, which I am now past. Is this something I need to worry about? Will my case automatically be dismissed because the court cannot fathom what has happened from my initial document? What should I do?
