Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How much are you proposing to sue for?
So no meal and you value this as $1m?
Is that the sort of sum you want to claim here?
You need to write and set out your losses and request a payment within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not pay you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial. Anything more than £10,000 then you will need a Solicitor to represent you.
You should also be aware if you take it to Court and lose then you would be liable the other sides legal costs as well
