Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays but rest assured that I will respond within 24 hours.
Is there an agreement in place that the person will pay the bill?
Is the mobile phone contract in your name?
Thanks for the further information you can potentially sue the person for their failure to honour the agreement in respect of not paying the bill in question which I assume they are liable for. Before you consider court action you will need to send a letter before action, which outlines the reason why the amount in question is owed and if payment is not made within*****action will follow. I have attached a template for your consideration, which you can amend accordingly and also send the person in question.
Turning to the injury to feelings unless you obtain a medical evidence, which confirms you suffered psychological injury as a result of the issue you will struggle to recover anything.
Assuming you do not receive a response from the person following the letter you should consider court action.
With regards ***** ***** action, please return to JA as we can assist you with the court procedure.
I hope I have clarified the position, if not please let me know.
Thanks and stay safe.
You will need what is called a medico legal report from a psychologist or psychiatrist to examine you and produce a report which links the symptoms to the ongoing issue. The reports are not cheap as its a private practice matter. Further the likely costs of such a report is higher than the amount owed. That said its up to you whether you wish to go down this road.
