Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.
You mean smoke alarm?
There should have been. What is it you want to ask me about this?
Yes I have. You say you need to some advice and guidance. But you don’t say in relation to what. Do you want to see compensation?
It only really matters if it would have made any difference. If the answer is no, then there is no negligence. If the answer is yes, then you can seek compensation.
You need to write and set out your losses and request compensation within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not compensate you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value, you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
There is no, there is only a guideline for psychological trauma. But for that you need to have suffered a recognised condition,
So you need to get a psychiatric report saying you have a condition and then it is directly related to the incident.
If you can then you can claim. For a one year Injury it would be about £5000
Does that Clarify?
