Probably bit late in day to ask this.

 

 

I am in a County Court tomorrow in respect of a small claim against a large company.

 

 

The amount I am claiming is around £8,000.

 

 

I am acting for myself and the Defendant appointed a large legal company.

 

 

I was offered a Commercial Offer of £1,000 to basically go away which I refused.

 

 

This afternoon I received a email from the Legal Company with a statement of costs which they have provided to the Court.

 

 

They intend to claim around £25,000.00 in costs.

 

A. should I be worried or B. top myself now

 

thanks

Defendant cant claim costs in small claims track......apart from the basic fixed costs

 

I assume the claim has now been allocated to SCT.

The weird thing is,

is that I see many many many reverse writs where the original claim for UNDER 10k was defended

and won and costs were awarded, sometime in the tens of thousands.

 

Advising that they CANT is wrong. Advising that it is rare, but possible is sound advice.

 

A lot also depends on what you are suing for.

Personal injury claims etc can result in very high costs being awarded.

 

I wont go into the nitty gritty as I dont know enough about costs in the small claims,

but I know enough to say that costs can and are awarded and they are not always small.

 

Also, be aware that they may just be saying it to try and get you to drop the case.

What they claim, and what a judge awards will probably be two very different figures if they do win.

 

Hopefully, someone will be along to offer some more advice shortly.
