Hi.as far as i was aware yes,it was verbably agreed between us that i would pay for the repairs,i even paid for additional work on the vehicle(ie a new cluctch was fitted on the owners say)even though it was not required.Had i been made aware of a claim regarding loss of earnings i would have proceeded to ask the matter to be subject to a insurance claim.The subject has not been raised in over 12 months even though i have spoken to him on numerous occasions
Have proceedings been issued, or is it just a threat?
Hi,at the moment i beleive proceedings have not been issued has the letter i have received has given me 10 days to respond
Ok - do you have any evidence that loss of earnings was not discussed or agreed?
No Alex,the subject was not discussed,i would not have used the vehicle under such conditions,replacing the damaged engine was just the right thing to do.
ok - then they can not claim loss of earnings.
If it was agreed the damage was in full and final settlement with no mention of loss of earnings, then it can't be claimed
You agreed to £6000 repairs only.
Therefore you should write to the Solicitor and say loss of earnings was not discussed and the repairs were full and final settlement
That should be the end of the matter
Full and final settlement for repairs, means just that - nothing more can be claimed
