hi i initially made a claim agai st yhe defendant. the defendant is contesting the clsim and after they psid me £800.00 their cost id smounting to £8000.00 the trial is in 3 dsys. ineed extension.
My CRUCIAL question is the letters okay. i need to send them as a matter of urgency.
They neither admit or deny any counter claims or liability.
You need to make a formal application using form N244
You can't just write to the Court.
Make the application and enclose the letters.
Then the Court can consider it.
But you MUST make an application - the cost is £45 - otherwise the Court will not even consider it.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I went to the county court ans they said email will do but they will confirm tomorrow. but thank you i need to get this correct
I may need help on how to refer my case to the law society.
i did also phone th ecourt
they said email will do
ok i will do so
after tomorrow acknowledgement
Wosskow Brown did not advise properly
and i had comprehensive insurance
but it will not cover
for now it is waiting time
I manage to settle myself before going into court with the defendants solicitors.
And they paid me a £1000.00
My ex solicitors said in a previous letter that i have breached CFA
Can they come after me with their bill?
If you have breached it they could.
Because you have agreed to certain terms and conditions
What they says is an enginner report is not going my way for the accident, but bearing in mind there has been a settlment
Is it so that they cannot claim more than a 100% of my claim?? Under the CFA rules?
You can only claim 100%
New rules came in April 2013
So they can only claim a £1000.00 no more than that?
their bill is £8k
but they starting representing me on the 26th september 2012
I see. sorry
No if their bill was £6000 and you breached the CFA they can claim £6000
And a 100% uplift of another £6000 because it was pre April 2013
they idea of breach is saying engineer report does not fully substantiate my version, but it also states in the report that it is possible. so is their idea of breach fragile?
Is that it?
they thing is i think they misrepresented me
Ok - that does not sound like a breach.
i didnt fully understand that my comprehensive insurers could have done what they did; represent me in a claim
But they can try and claim it off you.
it was unfunded
But you have won in any event
Yes but a CFA is a no win no fee
You need to see their terms and on what basis they allow you to withdraw
i want to nip it in the bud, so they is no come backs
I dont know all the details but it sounds like something you can fight
Can I clarify anything else?
they made an application to court To Come Off record as acting for me
Ok - it was their choice.
just based on engineer report
But you need to check the terms of the CFA to see if you breached it
so their CFA will be different, it is not a standard thing?
I can't say because I havent seen it
But you need to check the terms
thank Alex, i will ask for their CFA
sorry my son was calling me
Thanks you Alex
