hi ericsbrother, thanks for that advice. The points you have given me are what I was thinking, but you made them better, I will put a bit more meat on them, but not as you say write a book or give to much away.
We would like to see the particulars of claim to see if the wording has changed from the normal. Simon hs been tweaking things to try and make it look like he has some authority to create laws to suit his situation.
I think if there is a benefit to the pandemic , it’s showing us what can be achieved rapidly in respect to improving the environment .
Just as well, the Met Office are ‘stunned’ how one of the wettest UK winters on record had turned into one of the driest springs. Absolute extremes, that simply isn’t normal for this country.
Yep, your defence at this point is an outline and only needs to be bullet points but you will need to show something will be added later.
For this reason a simple " no keeper liability" or "no breach of contract" wont suffice but is a decent point 1 out of say 4 points ( by all means use both if they apply) but add a little more without writing a book
so for example no keeper liability- the claimant failed to create one under the POFA and the defendant denies being the driver at the time
for no brach of contract you could add (a) the signage at the site is inadequate to be considered an offer or (b) the claimed breach is not a contractual condition on the signage at the site
you see what I eman? enough detail to show there is a defence but no reams of stuff at this stage as they will probably drop the claim before you have to write and collate all of your evidence. carry on collecting it is if they are going to see you in court but dotn waste reams of paper on them at this time. It also prevents them from seeing your full hand before you have to play it
no to mediation, not relevant to this type of claim. Works well for when you sue your builder for a botched job where he has done some work with a value to be determined
