Ok

Has a Court applictaion already been made or not?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
We will apply for a court date after the 7th July that will be the 7 th day that they have to reply I have not heard anything to day so tomorrow is the last day regards lloyd
Expert:  Clare replied 8 months ago.

When you make the applictaion to the court then yes you can claim costs - but please make sure that your solicitor does not delay applying any further - it is clear she will not settle

so you need to let the court deal with the matter

Please ask if you need further details

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Clare
To be appserlotey sure I mean all my cost including my lawyers cost to date not only the court cost
I was in a lot of pain last night and have only been able to put of bed this is a man that has been self employed for 30 years not me at all
I just want to make sure that you know all my cost to date best regards lloyd
Expert:  Clare replied 8 months ago.

How much you recover of the costs is a matter for the court to decide and I am afraid there is no other way of recovering the excess
