    • Hello everyone, recently I ordered 4 birds, 2 canaries and 2 lovebirds from a pet shop in Nottingham. When I received the birds, one of the canaries looked scruffy and had a bald spot on its back. when I asked the owner if this was normal he stated that “it is a baby and will be normal in a week” so I waited a week and I discovered it was sneezing throughout the night. I then decided to check their weight and the scruffy one was only 15 grams while the other was 26 grams. While weighing them I discovered they were covered in blood mites (small bugs that feed on blood) so I contacted him and he said I could return them but I’m unable to drive an hour to his shop so I offered to pay another delivery fee fr him to pick it up but he was ignoring me so I decided to try to treat them and bought many medicines and I cured their mute problem but now all 4 birds are sneezing, I’ve had many birds before and I’ve never had these problems so I asked him if he couldn’t please come pick them up but he kept reading my messages and ignoring me then when I called him he blocked my number so I messaged him on my other number laws showing te sale of an ill animal is prohibited and sent him proof of his false advertising (saying they were “excellent healthy birds”) proof fm their illness and he blocks me again. I feel scammed and according to the law he I is obligated to refund me for the birds and any medical expenses but I don’t know know where to report him or what to do about it. Any suggestions would  be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • If its a domestic address and a normal account, thought they could only bill who is on the Tenancy agreement or Mortgage, as isn't a Tenancy in Common. if Joint tenancy and other party gone, didn't think children who have gained majority can be held liable, as not on any paperwork, apart from Electoral roll.  Is a Lodger liable?
    • Thank you so much for explaining that to me much appreciated

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I was recently involved in an accident. I guess I should start by explaining what happened.

 

I was following a car, a fair distance from me at night. It went round a sharp corner. What I did not know was that when it went round the corner, it clipped a vehicle coming the other way. I came to the corner unaware of what was round the bend, entered the bend, passed the oncoming vehicle and was then immediately blinded by a big dust storm, hit the brakes but then there was a bang. I saw for a very brief moment the car that was in front of me and hit the side of it. It turns out that they had lost control, rolled the car and stopped in the middle of the road after clipping the on coming car.

I suspect the on coming car was not completely on their side of the road when the car in front of me hit it. When I passed the oncoming car I moved to the left a little because they seemed close.

 

I don't feel that I could have done anything to prevent the accident and did everything I could to avoid it. But my insurance company say that I was at fault, even though the other car lost control, reduced any visibility and ultimately could have been caused by the on coming car being on the wrong side.

 

Could anyone give any advice? I've never been in a proper accident and it does not feel right that I'm the party that's being blamed.

Yes you will be found at fault. Although it sounds like you could not have avoided the accident, because you crashed into another vehicle, it will always go against you.

 

Unless you have video evidence of the accident to show the Insurers that the other cars caused the accident, they have to base it on known fact i.e you crashed into the other car.

 

Obviously there is no video evidence, so how can you prove it was was not your fault ?


We could do with some help from you.

Hey redfish......... I know this sounds a little crazy but is it possible that you can sketch or draw what happened and put a picture of the scene up on the thread? As Unclebulgaria says normally one should be in a position to stop and avoid an accident, but what you are describing sounds as if you were in the wrong spot at the wrong time and were a victim much as the oncoming car was.

 

Were the police called? Were you hurt? What is happening police wise re prosecutions?

Depending on the exact geography of the bend I think you may be able to make a case that the TP driver was negligent and the cause of the accident.

 

I have in mind case law that I recall that the driver of a vehicle who had a heart attack was at fault when he was rear-ended. But I cannot remember the citation unfortunately.
