I'm Ltd company and yesterday received a high court claim for clinical/medical negligence (noted as 1 of 4 defendants) I'm not a clinic/surgeon, this isnt my business activities, I'm not insurered for such. i assisted client with travel arrangements. The claim doesnt register any complaints with the service i offered it is all 'clinical negligence' signed Contract for liability is between client and hospital/surgeon and monies paid direct to hospital surgeon in another European country law. I have no clinical liability insurance as its impossible to obtain, my company isnt profitable and cannot afford a barrister should the case go to trial at high court. I need help what to write on the defence paperwork to have my details removed from this paperwork. The paperwork (N1 claim form) 6th May but letter dated 2/9 (only received it yesterday) the other 3 defendants haven't received any paperwork - Acknowledgement expected by tomorrow (16/9). It doesn't even have an address on where to send it just 'royal courts of justice' can you help?
yes red stamp dated 6th may (issue date) - queens bench action department - high court of justice.
i am not a clinic,
i am not a surgeon
i am not medically trained
i did not accept any monies for this medical treatement
i did not sign contract with claimant that she would 100% receive treatment
i have no contracts with hospital, clinic, surgeon
i arranged her travel and hotel - which forms no complaint in the claim
claimant paid hospital directly after she met them agreed procedures signed contracts under Polish law.
paperwork says "i carried out business as specialist tour operator supplying packaged travel under english law packages included travel arrangements including surgery.
yes - it has the claimants home address, but paperwork all was sent to me from her medical negligence lawyer, do i send the response directly to the claimant or to her lawyer or to the court?
what wording should i write on the defense to make it clear that i am not liable and wish to be removed from this case? i already write 4 pages step by step explaining everything. do i include this again?
maybe i need just 1 or 2 sentences for this court defense paperwork?
is this case already at court or is it possible for them to drop me as defendant?
My questions was I needed help what to write on the defence paperwork to have my details removed from this paperwork. your answer was go see a lawyer!
