I want to add more to it but not sure what else I could add.I'm struggling with that. Are you thinking 'Never mind the quality, feel the width' (70s TV show for those in a fuller flush of youth!)?Is there a case that has been won based on insufficient/illegible signs that I can reference into the 3rd paragraph? Or should I not do that?You can do, but not at this stage. Evidence comes with your Witness Statement further in the future (a few weeks hence). There are many cases where Judges have found for the motorist on the basis of inadequate signage, but please note, judgments in the small claims court have no automatic bearing on the decisions of other Judges. Persuasive judgments have to come from courts higher than small claims courts. But, it doesn't stop you seeking out some of the judgments involving signage (none from memory having come from a higher court) and using the language utilised in defences and witness statements focusing on signage. I'm afraid you'll have to use the rather clunky forum search engine to find them. We try to add the phrase 'ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST' to any court cases won, so use that as your search engine's keyword and see what comes up. You'll need to plough through each thread, there's no easier route.
2) should add if it's keeper and driver , or keeper but not the driver , or keeper but driver not known due to length of time passed and an unremarkable day so long ago , etcIf in doubt , think what you would answer truthfully in court , if asked under oathSignage is already mentioned elsewhere in the defence templateThe time for jackanory stories are in the witness statement plus exhibits stage in several months timeHere you set the scene , but there is no audience for a !ong monologue yet , the doors are closed so this is the bare bones that opens those doors to the later scenes before the audience ( your own local civil court )You don't add to it unless there are other defence points to add to the mix , embellishments are done at the WS stage , not now
The facts as known to the Defendant:
2. It is admitted that the
Defendant was the registered keeper and driver of the vehicle in question, but
liability is denied.
3. The defendant denies the
claims by the Claimant based on illegible signs around the car park. On the entry of the car park, the defendant
noticed a sign to the right that contained graffiti, covering majority of the
surface of the sign. Additional signs surrounding the entrance are one too many
on a single pole to properly read and understand. For this reason, the signs
are placed awkwardly high up the pole and difficult to read. In addition to
this, the signs are obstructed by branches of nearby trees, rendering them
difficult to read. Therefore, the defendant denies entering a legal contract on
Can/should i sent this off right away or wait for a while?
I did not mention anything about 'abuse of process' for the added £60 "debt collection" costs.Is it too late to add this? Could I still mention it at WS stage?Thanks
Have you done the Government Consultation mentioned in the thread on page one? Only 4 full days lefty’s make the biggest difference you can possibly make.
