Thanks, ***** ***** the local authority accept their mistake and have lost my personal information. I just need to get a court order for monies owed with personal injury compensation. I don't know how to do this. Also I don't know how much to ask them for
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not issued a court order
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Or a claim. I have a 160A form but don't know the legal format to move forward
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
You cannot ask for personal injury compensation here – there are no personal injuries. Losing your personal information is not a personal injury and unless you have suffered actual losses as a result, which you have not, you cannot claim anything for that. All you can claim for is the pension which has been underpaid. This is due to you legally and they have admitted to it so this is what you can pursue them for. Form 106A is just a form to assist you with the court fees. To make the claim you need to complete form N1: http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf Guidance notes available here: http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001a-eng.pdf The amount you can claim for is the actual pensions contributions which are missing and a value for the potential uplift if the pension had been invested properly. This is something which will be quite difficult to establish though and you may have to contact the pensions provider to ask them for an estimate of what the pension would be worth now had these contributions been made and use that as a figure to claim (obviously the difference of what it would be worth and what it is actually worth). I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you

Is there any legal terms l have to write
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
No do not get bogged down with legal terms, this is a breach of contract matter so it is common law anyway, you do not have to refer to statutes. Put it in your own words - explain that you were due a pension under your employment contract for example and that this was unpaid, mention the dates and amounts briefly and state that you are pursuing this claim as a breach of contract. Hope this clarifies?
