No idea we haven't got as far as who is to blame, ***********
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
The company delivering are blaming the company doing the ground work. Th agg company are saying that because the ground workers asked for stone to be tipped on drive that the responsibility if walls are damaged on way in lays with those who asked for the stone to be brought in.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Although that disclaimer but wasn't said before delivering.
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

Sure. Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
If I have questions about same situation do I pay again
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

No. One fee. Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I've just rung the agg company based on what your colleague told me. The agg company are refusing that and saying you guys are wrong. Did the other Alex tell you what he'd said?
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

Yes and I agree. Its the delivery company liable.

Of course what you could do is issue proceedings against both.

That way the court can decide who is liable.

You could do that for the avoidance of any doubt

Does that clarify? Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Will that mean I'll incur heavy costs in taking them to court
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

If its below £10,000 then no.

County Court fees are here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fees-for-civil-and-family-courts/court-fees-for-the-high-court-county-court-and-family-court

There is a hearing fee and issue fee payable.

Does that clarify? Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Because one of them is liable will I get legal fees back or am I going to be out of pocket here what ever the outcome
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

Correct. You will get legal fees back from one of them. Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Ok. Thank you.
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

Happy to help. Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Ok I'll leave you to your tea. Ha. Bye
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

Haha thanks. Good luck and please let me know how you get on.

Remember any claim for £10,000 or under is a small claim.

Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Will do ok.
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

Ok. Alex

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Hi there
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
If we pursue the aggregate company for the damage during delivery, what pursuing them for. Is it a road traffic accident because they've crashed into my wall or personal injury claim same as if they'd hit my car.
Expert:  Ash replied 5 months ago.

Its a claim for negligence. its not a personal injury claim as you have not been injured.

Does that clarify?
Alex
