    • "These are certainly not the persuasive decisions that this Claimant may suggest." Well worded.   I would add that as VCS have been  active in Airports over the years  that one would  expect they would be familiar with the Airports Act which would call into question the accuracy of their WS.   By questioning their WS you are hoping that VCS might decide not to turn up in Court [giving you a walkover] as they might not want the Judge looking closely at their WS. Also it would not be good for them should you win your case based on the Airports Act as it will have other Courts  kicking out other Airport cases hitting them in the pocket.    
    • Hi,   Still no response. I have my Liability Order hearing in a few days time, I was hoping I might have been able to receive a response from either my local councillor or the leader of the council before then. I wonder if they are just going to ignore my email?   Walshy    
    • I have got an  independent expert report which clearly states it is a manufacturing fault, which DFS have been made aware of.   My point is that as a huge retailer of leather sofas with leather peeling  being a common complaint to me it seems evident they are aware it is a manufacturing fault on their side. Yet they play games with customers and worse of all try their level best to get the customer to believe that it is their fault due to oils or creams they are using.   Even if one is to believe that every day creams etc can cause this damage then in any event the sofas are not fit for purpose.   Surely they are merely playing a numbers game banking on the fact that most complainants will not follow through with legal action. Yet what about the anguish and distress they cause to customers in the process.   To me this shows alot of contempt towards consumers and is clearly unethical.

    • Thank you, @lookinforinfo. I have updated the VCS v Ward case as below:   VCS v Ward     1.       This case is often quoted by the claimant as assisting their case. However, in this instance it actually assists mine. It is contended that the act of stopping a vehicle does not amount to parking. This predatory operation pays no regard to the byelaws at all. It is likely that this Claimant may try to rely upon two 'trophy case' wins, namely VCS v Crutchley and/or VCS v Ward, neither of which were at an Airport location, which is not 'relevant land'. The airport land is subject to the Airport Byelaws as specified in 'Section 63' of the Airports Act 1986 [EXHIBIT A]. Both cases involve flawed reasoning, and the Courts were wrongly steered by this Claimant's representative; there are worrying errors in law within those cases, such as an irrelevant reliance upon the completely different Supreme Court case. These are certainly not the persuasive decisions that this Claimant may suggest.   63 Airport byelaws. (2) Any such byelaws may, in particular, include byelaws— (d) for regulating vehicular traffic anywhere within the airport, except on roads within the airport to which the road traffic enactments apply, and in particular (with that exception) for imposing speed limits on vehicles within the airport and for restricting or regulating the parking of vehicles or their use for any purpose or in any manner specified in the byelaws;

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi all,

 

I am new to this forum and apologise if this is the wrong section to post this.

 

I live in London and was involved in an accident yesterday.

 

As I was leaving the bus, a man ran to get on the bus and collided into me, giving me an ankle injury.

 

I didn't know if it was broken or just sprained, but figured it may have been broken as I almost fainted moments after.

Do I have any rights to receive compensation i.e. from the man?

 

Thanks.

Did you get his name and address then?

 

 

Did the x-ray show it was broken or is it just sprained?

 

 

Why do you believe you're entitled to compensation?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

I don't know if I am entitled to compensation, that's why I asked.

 

I have contacted TFL to help identify the man on CCTV.

 

I haven't done an x-ray scan yet.

 

I wanted to know if a compensation claim is possible, regardless it it is sprained or broken?

Or would it depend on the severity of the injury?

You seem more concerned about obtaining compensation over any personal damage.

You'd know if you'd broken your ankle, or even sprained it, and would be sitting in A&E.

It hurts.

 

I'm not sure how you think TFL are going to identify somebody from CCTV, they don't have facial recognition software that gets matched to a name and address.

 

I know that we live in a compensation culture, but please.

This isn't America, nor do we have to suffer their ridiculous legal system (thankfully). Whilst the OP might be able to sue for compensation, the award is unlikely to be very large. In addition, if the defendant doesn't have appropriate insurance, the prospect of getting any money is slim at best. legal costs would eat in to any possible award or even leave the claimant out of pocket.

Also your request to TFL to help you identify the person from CCTV, ah that is a none starter as you are not the Data Subject even if TFL could identify the individual you will not get that information as they would be breaching the Data Protection Act if they did as again you are not the Data Subject.

I agree .... but we need to be careful, else the OP will be posting asking how they can seek compensation from us over their hurt feelings!

Anyone else wondering if the op seems more like an essay question than a real one?

Well, there are certainly more theoretical topics that might be discussed rather than the real world answer of “what planet...........”!

there is case law on this but it isnt helpful in the OP's case as it basically says that accidents do happen and unless you can prove the other person was reckless then tough.

More importantly though OP, how on earth do you think you are going to progress this? TfL CANT give you the persons details even if they somehow manage to identify him by way of oyster card use or whatever without his permission. After that you havent identified a loss caused by the injurya nd as yet you havent determined what the injury is. If you have broken it them chances are it doesnt hurt that much but will give way in a few days as the bone start to siften to repair itself and a sprain will give you large amounts of fluid around the injury but will recover fairly quickly so not really any damage to sue for. I once got knocked over by a van which mounted the kerb-driver who was on his phone easily identified and still didnt get ant compensation despite needing an ambulance to convey me to hospital because to injuries were temporary and I hadnt lost earnings for being off work etc
