    • Hi Stormy   I do wish you good luck but I'd urge you not to get over-optimistic about a letter from your GP having any bearing on the outcome of this.  I do not share London1971's view that such a letter will assist you in defending the claim against you - unless you are suggesting that the diagnosis is so bad that you aren't functioning - in which case you probably ought not to be working.  Is your GP going to say that you can't be held liable for a breach of contract, but that you're perfectly OK to continue working and to make significant decisions in other areas of your life?  I don't know.   Also, I'm uncertain where the question of bullying and harassment first surfaced in this thread.  You engaged them on a NWNF basis to pursue a claim for you.  Apparently they contacted (or attempted to contact) you a lot - certainly more than you felt necessary or were comfortable with, and you ended up deciding to discontinue the case.  But were they harassing you?  Again, I simply don't know because I wasn't there - only you were.  Most people complain that they don't have enough contact from their solicitors, not that they are being harassed by being contacted too often.   And I'm not sure where the bullying comes from?  They're suing you because they think you are in breach of contract and that you owe them the costs and expenses they've already incurred - and that they cannot now recover from the other party because you decided to discontinue the case.  I'm no particular supporter of law firms but, unlike some people, I don't have "anti-lawyer" as a default setting.  If they've genuinely incurred costs acting on your behalf and in your interests, then I think they've got a more than fair case to recover those costs.  Threatening to sue you or actually suing you isn't necessarily bullying.   I honestly think your best chance of success is questioning the level and extent of costs and expenses they claim to have incurred and try to reach a mutually acceptable settlement.   As I've said before, I'm not intending to be critical of you in any way and I'm really sorry that all this (the original accident, hassle with the lawyers and now them suing you) seems to have contributed to all the stress you have to bear.  I'm really just interested in ensuring that you can see this problem from all points of view and that you don't place too much reliance on an approach that I think has only very limited chances of success.  (But of course - as London1971 has pointed out - there's no harm in getting a GP's letter anyway AND preparing a legal defence like BankFodder is suggesting AND preparing to think about settling.  They aren't all mutually exclusive and you should keep as many irons in the fire as you can.  Use belt and braces and don't just rely on one).   Anyway.  Good luck.  I'm frequently wrong and you may win outright!

    • I think it would be prudent to stick with a realistic objective and that is the hundred and £69 which you you can apparently support by means of evidence. You originally said that you could have sold them for four times – £400 and I think this is certainly unrealistic. If you had some official evaluation of the books from an independent source then you would have stood a good chance but as the books have gone, I think your fallback is the £169
    • Hi  I don't have an issue going all the way - The only question I would have would be whether I could expect to recover the resale value or whether it would be best to concede this is unlikely. I can prove to some extent the expected resale value but not as readily as the prices originally paid.

    • 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

Sorry, but the claim form which you have posted up is far too small to read.

Please would you scan it into PDF format and then upload it so that we can read it properly. Thanks

Hi.

 

BF is the expert, but I think we normally suggest to tick 'Defend all'. Is that an option on MCOL?

Didn't you get a response pack which included a form N9a – acknowledgement of service – in which you can ask for more time to follow defence?

That's the one that you should complete.

There is also a form N9b which is the defence form and that should be sent off later with a proper defence. Don't send it off yet. But sending off the acknowledgement will get you 28 days – although count it carefully – and aim to return the defence form before day 22 – just to make sure that there are no hiccups.

In the meantime you'll get advice here as to how to defend – assuming that you want to defend.

 

Also please complete the questions which you were linked to by my site team colleague @dx100uk in his response to your first post

Hi BankFodder,  I got all the forms you asked me about, will send defence at later date.

No, no result yet,  but I would like to pay site this amount whatever the outcome, it’s here when people need it.  

I think it’s a matter of principle.

 

Also I know CAG pain to these, can’t find word to describe them.  

I presume they read this site, so it will get right up their nose,

If you can get pictures of the signage now, yes, go for it.

 

I know it's a long, long shot, but also try to remember if they were different in 2015.

There are some places where on Google streetmap you can pull up earlier images of the same location.

Now your palce has been the subject of a claim before and they lost so have a look back though the threads and see if you can find the relevant one. A keyword search should help.

Also get pictures of what is there now

If you do as instructed with MCOL, it will only need a simple short defence, initially VCS  and other PPCs would likely invoice a mobility scooter if it had a registration Q plate on display 8mph scooters have to be registered,  like a car, trike or motorbike  butno legal requirement to put the VRM plate on, some do) for their ANPR to log.

It doesnt matter what it was they will demand money, it could have been a shopping trooley and you would still get a demand. there is a case where PE did send a NTK out for someone pushing a shopping trolley with false plates on it so it shows how little attention the parking co's give to the ANPR images.

 

If the signage says cars they are stuffed from the outset but if it says vehicle then a child's electric scooter is theoretically liable for a charge as it is a mechanically propelled vehicle intended or adapted to be used on roads.

 

Dont lose a claim becuse you are trying to be smart, the law will take the commonest meaning of the term

That machine is basically a motorcycle, or a twist & Go scooter with 2 closely spaced front wheels, so is ridden like a motorbike, They have come unstuck with Motorcycles etc with ANPR , as no front numberplate to sign them into the fleecing zone, only an image when they leave. How did they observe the vehicle?  VCS are so greedy they invoiced a car stopped at a pedestrian crossing with people crossing in front of the car in the image.

 

As EB says don't get hung up on the trike angle, a look at the signage and small print on them will indicate ifany milege there.
