Now i know some of you will think this is tight. But I was a witness to an accident (noone was hurt other than the cars) didnt think it would come to much as in my opinion it was a clear cut case, but this morning have received an accident witness form to fill with a letter stating that i may have to appear in court as a witness.

Now i was wondering if i could claim my time and expnses going to the post office etc... from the solicitors? I know it could be morally wrong to do this but the form is vvvvveeeeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyyyy long and complex and will prob take 2-3 hours to complete with drawings etc...

What would you lot do? ;D

    I would do unto others as I would have them do unto me, namely ... spare someone your time (and the cost of a stamp) when they are in need of a bit of help.

    However, I would assume that if the matter involves your attending court, then all expenses would be paid.
    If it's cheap, I'm cheerful!
