***** *****
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified solicitor and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What do you want to sue them for exactly?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Trying to obtain monies under false pretences and blackening my name for 3years
Have you suffered any losses as a result?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No ,no financial lost just grief
The issue is that the courts will not just compensate you for grief, stress, inconvenience, etc. You need to show that you have suffered losses as a result of their actions. Many people go through issues where they believe they have been wronged by another party and had their name blackened or been exposed to grief, however that does not mean that they can just go and sue, otherwise everyone will be suing each other all the time. So unless you can show that you have suffered actual losses as a result of their actions you would not be able to sue for any damages, a court will not hear your claim or issue compensation for grief. I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you were hoping for, however I do have a duty to be honest and explain the law as it actually stands. This does mean delivering bad news from time to time. I hope you understand and would be happy to provide any further clarification if needed. If you are still satisfied with the level of service you have received I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating by selecting 3, 4 or 5 starts at the top of the page.
