We are curtain-makers. We had a dispute over some curtains

Customer Question

We are curtain-makers. We had a dispute over some curtains we supplied that we were trying to resolve. Things were becoming heated at the customers house so we said we would leave, consider our next move and get back to them. An argument ensued and as we were going out the door the wife punched me in the back and when I turned to ask why the husband punched me in the face. We called the police but the CPS have declined to prosecute as its their word against ours. The is now threatening to sue. Can I counterclaim for the assault? The amount involved is £1800.

Just one further question please. Is there a limit on the amount I can counter-claim for the assault?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 months ago.

No. But if you want to keep it a small claim, it needs to be £10,000 or below.
