My first post here, I think this is probably the best place for it. I witnessed a collision between a pedestrian and a bus around 18 months ago. I have now been contacted by investigators working for the solicitors for the pedestrian asking me to provide a witness statement in person. I gave a statement to the police at the time and subsequently in writing to the bus company, plus a brief response to the pedestrian's solicitors about a year later. I have no wish to be involved any further, and in particular I have no desire to help the pedestrian and his ambulance chasing solicitors given that the incident was entirely his fault. Am I under any obligation to agree to the request to give a statement, and if I refuse can I be compelled at a later date by a court to give evidence (the incident happened in Scotland but I live in England). The request was hand delivered, can I tell them not to visit my house again, and if they do is that considered harassment?
I have started a claim against a private individual and they have submitted an acknowledgement of service and intend to defend the claim. They however left off their DOB on the form and the court still processed it. However, isn't it a legal requirement to provide this under PD16 paragraph 10.7? It's on my understanding that the court shouldn't have accepted the acknowledgement without the defendants DOB? Would this then make the acknowledgement invalid and what will my next steps be to make the court aware of this via MCOL?
Hi, I have been having problems with debt over the 2 years. I've now put myself in a position to climb out of the hole I'm in. I moved this weekend & my employer knows this and now wants to know my new address.. The problem is they passed on my previous address to bailiffs when it was request before.. Because I am unhappy with them disclosing this information I am going to refuse to give my new address but pass them my parents address as a C.O. As far as I am concerned, I will have notifications of any mail sent to me by my work, and my home will be my safe-zone. By that I mean I can live in peace without having to worry about random bullies knocking at my door until I have got my footing again and I'm able to gain a debt-free status again. I have recently set myself up with a DMP (Stepchange) who are starting to 'manage' my debts with me so I am on track to get things paid up.. What are my legal obligations to tell my employers my address..? Am I legally entitled to pass them a C.O. or PO-Box because I need to feel safe in my own home? What does this clause say I need to provide? Also, Who are they allowed to disclose my details too?? I assumed by doing that they were in breach of the Data Protection Act. Does this count for government requests (E.G Councils)?
