I'm prepared to go to court as there is no way the car could be moved it had broken down. All I need to know is there likely to be court proceedings as that's what I ideally want to happen?

Thanks for your patience and enquiry. Having losses the appeal the next step is for the matter to proceed to court. At court you would be able to state your defence.

Expert:  ReadyLaw replied 8 days ago.

Unfortunately it is not for you to commence proceedings. It really is for them to claim against you and them having claimed against you, for you to file a defence. The starting of the process for court is really out of your hands unfortunately.

Expert:  ReadyLaw replied 8 days ago.

if they are adamant though that you are in the wrong then I would not be surprised with them issuing proceedings shortly.

Expert:  ReadyLaw replied 8 days ago.

Can I clarify anything for you? I hope I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.

At some stage they’re like to threaten court as I do not intend to pay unless a judge awards me to pay.
Expert:  ReadyLaw replied 8 days ago.

I would wait for the process to be taken to court then file a defence
