    • out of the blue text and email from J&P asking me to make contact regarding ref number.   Plan to adopt same tactic as for last 12 years with CW&D, IRDWW, IDR etc  
    • Spoke to legal which turned out to be the court processing the claim all they could recommend was filling in the plea online and gave me an email so I could attach proof of DD being in place. So going back to DVLA to see if I can get any further explaining what has happened 
    • It would just be good to get a few more opinions on the judges decision before I decide whether to push on with it or stop if there's every chance I will lose and owe them more in legal costs

    • Hello I hope someone can give me some advice here, as I am at a bit of a loss on how to proceed. This relates to alleged offences under the RTA. Yesterday I received a notification from the local police of intention to prosecute for the following offences: 1 driving without due care and attention 2 failing to stop at a road traffic accident 3 failing to report a road traffic accident At this stage they have only asked me to say whether I was the driver at the time or not and provided a blank sheet of paper to give information about the incident. Going by the location (just round the corner from where I live) I can only imagine this relating to one recent incident, which wasn't actually an accident but more of a road rage event. I was driving past someone unloading or working next to his lorry which had stopped in the road. I wasn't going fast or anything, while I went by lorry man turned around and punched and kicked my car whilst going past him. I stopped and got out and wanted to know what he thought he was doing punching and kicking my car. He then hurled some verbal abuse at me, swearing and he was quite aggressive. I still didn't know what his problem was and said I would report him to his company for threatening behaviour and vandalism for punching my car. I got my phone and tried to take a photo of his lorry and number plate but at that moment he came right at me, still shouting and swearing, so I was worried he may hit me next, as he already punched my car. I thought if the guy hits me I will come off second best, so I decided to retreat. I quickly got back into my car and left. When I checked my phone later the photo I tried to take was blurred and useless, so I thought it was pointless to report the incident to the police, as the guy would not be traceable. Over that I forgot about it until I got the letter yesterday in the post. This is the only thing I believe this can relate to, but I have no idea based on what the three above allegations come from There was no road traffic accident, more of a road rage incident. So I am at a loss what to do. I have 28 days to respond. Should I just say yes I was the driver and was there and see what happens next, or should I already make a written statement on the attached piece of paper they sent me and send that with it ? Is there anyone here who would have a rough idea what to do next ? I tried my legal advice line through my Union, but they have sent me from pillar to post, now say it needs to go to a different department again and that would be chargeable as the RTA comes under Criminal Law. So any advice would be appreciated Many Thanks

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi

 

 

Please can anyone help with this?

A brand new red checked shirt was washed following the label instructions at 40 degrees and the red dye has run into several other garments dyeing them pink/red to the point that they are potentially ruined.

 

 

Can anyone provide advise on how to approach the store to claim for the cost of the damaged clothes?

 

 

Thanks for any help?

hi, red normally always runs and it is best you wash it with item of the same colour

So why should the shop be liable for what you admit is your mistake?

 

I'm not being rude, I'm just giving you the stance the shop will take.

 

 

 

Because their product ruined other clothes when washed as per instructions on the label?

 

 

There was no warning on the label about it potentially running.

That's like being hit by a bus and then trying to sue a bus company for not telling you that you could possibly be hit by a bus when crossing the road. Looking when crossing the road is something that should be taught by parents/school/experience.

 

I'm sorry but clothes running in the was is just a learning curve that almost everyone has to suffer.

You're obviously missing the point here then.

Ah, the very reason i had to put a notice above a heater the other day to 'warn' people that it might be hot...

 

Chipper, hate to be the one to add to the chorus of 'you made a mistake - it's your fault' but, there we go...

Well, that seems to be the general consensus of opinion so I suppose i'll go with that.

 

 

My view, for what it's worth, is that the goods I bought (and washed) should not of been able to cause damage to other goods that it comes into contact with. Why don't the manufacturers produce clothes to such a stage where this type of thing can't happen? If it only happens during the first wash, why isn't that a part of the process where the dye is added?

Perhaps contact the manufacture of the shirt and provide evidence (eg photograph of the label) that you notice that they do not include the disclaimer that other manufacturers do - that dark colours have the potential to lose dye in the first wash ! Explain that because of this you believed there would be no dye run.

 

However, I think it unlikely that you will get anywhere.

 

I have purchased a duvet set that seems to run every time it is washed ? The colour of the duvet is getting fainter and fainter but the colour of the sheet is becoming stronger :lol:

There are products that take out dye stains. Google 'colour run remover' and you'll find several.

Update:We used Tesco Colour Run Corrector and salvaged some items. Thanks to all those who provide positive help.

Having worked in the clothing industry many moons ago there is usually a label on new clothing that warns of colour fastness. The prime suspects that cause colours to run are always reds including purples, blue and black. Other colours will run but the effect isn't so noticeable.

 

However regardless of having a warning label or not I would always wash a new item on its own before even wearing it as jeans and shirts have been known to stain skin in the groin and armpit/collar area where moisture can build up.

 

If the suspect item was purchased from a reputable source then it could always be argued you did wash the item separately but the colour fastness was of such it damaged the next load in the machine, as that is not unheard of depending on the washing machine used. Some washing machines at the end of each program will empty the contents of the sump, some don't leaving coloured water in the sump ready to stain the next load. When I have washed a new pair of jeans for example on their own I always flush the machine out on a rinse cycle just to make sure it's clean for the next load.

 

Me personally I would try my luck with the retailer and learn from it in future. Hope my advice helps.

Thanks for the useful info and help.

 

 

As I've said, the garment was put into the wash by mistake and USUALLY, these things don't happen (I don't ever remember it happening before), however, this time it has and it has ruined some expensive, relatively new tee-shirts (all items belonging to my sons so you can imagine our how well that has gone down!).

 

 

I just find it a bit surprising that manufacturers don't put it on the label when an incident such as this must be relatively common.
