    • Hi all,   It's been a while since I last posted.   We were due to fly LHR - Mex - Lap (return) with AeroMexico on May 2nd.   The flights were booked with Netflights (owned by dnata).   We have requested a refund from Netflights who have stated they will only issue our refund when (and if) they receive a refund from AeroMexico. 😡   Can anybody tell me who my contract of sale is with, Netflights or the airline?   Is this even relevant?    Who should be refunding me?   Thank you for any help.   Regards.
    • All Talk Talk Direct debits/standing orders, etc were all cancelled correctly and set up for BT. Talk Talk took the money from my debit card details which they had retained. I have now blocked this too. I just want my money back!
    • On the basis it was a direct debit from the bank. Why did you not use the DD guarantee and insist the bank refunds the money.     
    • Basically i can claim for my excess and loss of earnings as i was self employed and cost for hire of van, solicitors have asked for uninsured losses, if lossess are not included in claim i cant recover them at later date the letter states.  
    • Hi All,   On 26th May this year I called my broadband/phone service provider, Talk Talk, to inform them that I would be leaving them and moving to BT at the end of the month.  My contract with Talk Talk had officially ended back in October 2019 and I was just paying them on a monthly basis for continued service. I was advised that I did not need to do anything, as arrangements would be made on my behalf to keep my existing number etc between Talk Talk and BT.  I began my contract with BT on 1st June.  I cancelled my bank payment arrangements to Talk Talk and set up new ones for BT. I then received a bill from Talk Talk for June's monthly charges, which I ignored as I was no longer a customer, I owed them nothing, and they were not providing me with any kind of service. I then received a second bill from Talk Talk for July's monthly charges. I called Talk Talk to explain their error but they insisted that I was still a customer using their services.  This was despite me proving that I have been a BT customer for the past two months and paying BT for services that Talk Talk are claiming to be theirs. Talk Talk then took £60.39 from my bank account on 2nd August, despite having no authority or consent from me to do so.  I complained to my bank and they explained that utility companies hold on to customers payment details (despite GDPR) and this practice is common.  I have now instructed my bank to refuse any further payments to Talk Talk, by any means!. I phoned Talk Talk to complain and insist they repaid my money immediately as it had been obtained fraudulently and they are not providing any service to me anymore.  The adviser couldn't help much, but promised me a call from a manager later in the week.  The call never materialised. I called Talk Talk myself today, and after nearly four hours of phone calls, being put on hold, transferred, being made promises and making more calls, I have got nowhere. One manager did offer a token £30 payment which I obviously turned down.  I eventually hung up after being put on hold for over 20 minutes during a call lasting over an hour. These people are ignorant at best and impossible to deal with. Please could someone advise me on how to get my £60.39 back from these people?

    • 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

How would you show the the barrister's actions have caused "worsening" (of) "his existing PTSD injuries" for the 'egg-shell skull' factor to come into play?.. Is that the harm you believe has occurred allowing a claim in negligence?

 

 

Well, whatever problem the claimant/ victim is plagued with is the consequence the tort-feasor is liable for (under the egg-shell rule, ie meaning 'fragile' so be careful with the victim). So, if the OP has a certain psychiatric condition then the tort-feasor is liable for worsening that condition. The evidence indicates the harm, ie medical practitioner perhaps a psychiatrist, a psychologist, or significant GP notes, albeit it must be a recognised medical condition, ie stress is not sufficient but PTSD is.

But you still haven't shown that the barrister has made the PTSD worse.

If they haven't made it worse, there is no harm (at least, from that).

So what harm are you saying that the barrister has caused that you believe the 'egg-shell skull' rule is a factor in?.

Further search shows that the Barrister is not authorised to take litigation. he is an immigration certified. Does this matter?

What do you mean by "not authorised to take litigation"? Once they're called to the Bar then they have rights of audience for pretty much all Courts.

 

If you want to appeal then you need to make sure you get your application in on time and have a sound legal basis and not get caught up in is the Barrister qualified.

Thank you. The information is helpful.

Will the barrister agreed fee %commission be based on the award of injury of 5g or the 5g plus the legal cost of 6g as par the order. I have no idea why the order says 4g to be paid to barrister when our agreement was on ‘no win no fee.’ Our agreed %commission is lower than than what the order says she should receive. Can you help?

I don't understand what you mean by agreeing a % commission with your Barrister.

 

Have you got the Court Order? Can you scan it up or type it out please?

You needed to provide more detai please.

 

What precisely did the Barrister agree to take for fees?

 

As for the "no win no fee" agreement, you did win so the Barrister's fees are payable. Your Barrister would have submitted fee notes for settling the Particulars of Claim, advising, attending trial and would be paid for each of them.

 

The fact that your Barrister got more costs back than you is not a reason to appeal.

The agreed fees was 10%. No win no fees. Will this then be % of the award or the award and cost? If this so how do I reconcile the court order of payment which is more than our agreed %

You need to discuss this with your Barrister and get a full and detailed breakdown of their fees.

I intend to write the defence firm of solicitor and your advice Please:

 

Dear Sir,

 

As a self-litigant, you have been communicating directly to my Barrister without consultation with me and I warned you against this behaviour as I believe this to be unprofessional and not in line with the legal process.

 

1. On 01/11/2016 I sent a notification that my Barrister ceased to act for me from the 04/10/2016 at around 8.08am by email. Your firm replied in acceptance of my termination of my Barrister at 09:40am

 

2. On the 25/11/2016 at 09:34, I requested a clear effect of payment of £12,350.00 from your office in line with the court order which specifically states: ‘pay the claimant the amount of …..’. You made no reply.

 

3. On the 01/02/2017 a bailiff letter was sent to your client demanding the sum of £8,543.44 given until 11/02/2017 to pay else the enforcement will take place.

 

4. On the 07/02/2017 at 15:58 you sent out email that £3,805.00 was due to me that there has been error in the calculation by the bailiff.

 

5. On the 08/02/2017 at 9:30am I replied to you to pay the full amount of Bailiff Request of £8,543.00 to my account or contact the bailiff to deal with issue as I do not see anything wrong with the bailiff payment request. And a strong warning that you must comply to court order.

 

6. On the 09/02/2017 at 0629am, I sent you email to disregard my mail of the 08/02/2017 and pay all the £8543.44 straight to the bailiff or clarify your concern with the court.

 

7. On the 10/02/2017 at 10:04 your firm sent email of the court order we both rely on , including and sighting for the first time my Barrister fee Note dated 07/02/2017, stating payment of money received on the 26/01/2017.

 

8. On the 10/02/2017, I responded that your firm payment to my Barrister contradicts the court order and that the firm puts his client at risk of the bailiff.

 

Conspiracy between Claimant Barrister and the defence counsel and solicitor firm.

 

If at the trial of 3&4 October 2016 my barrister kept away a £12,000.00 and then £20,000.00 offer for settlement away from me until I had to force it out from her and telling me that the defence was trying to play the extent of my injury down, I am wrong to say that in the light of this new development, I am right to say conspiracy is going on here.

 

Please your advice as to what step to take on this issue. No payment has been received as he plans to pay £3,805.00 instead of the requested £8,543.44 enforcement order.

Hello there,

 

Can you tell us what's happened since October please? I notice that there were unanswered questions back then that the advisers here were waiting for answers to. It seems a bit much to expect them to advise now without the background to events.

 

I'm sure you'll be able to give us the information, it will get you better advice. :)

You still need to type out exactly what the Court order says word for word please.
