    CEL Claim form defend help

    CEL Claim form defend help 9th Apr 18 at 1:26 PM
    Hi all,
    I have received a Claim form for dropping off and picking up an elderly friend in a gated estate area. After receiving the PCN I wrote a letter to the company to explain the situation, but it has been refused. We do give a lift often to this old lady who suffers from Alzheimers, cancer and severe dementia and never had problem entering the site. This time we spent 19 minutes waiting for her as we could not reach her and was worried about her well being. We got the PCN with pictures of entering and leaving the site, but actually we did not park there as we have been waiting in the car. I have responded to the claim online and now I need to write my defence but I am lost especially as I do not fully understand these legal words( as English is not my first language). Can somebody guide me please what points to include and how can I include the real reason I have been in the site. Thanks for any help!

    Update on my case: I had the court hearing today. CEL was going through the whole process in my case even got somebody representing the company on court hearing. The Judge dismissed the case as Cel has not provided the contract with the landowner before the hearing. I did not had to say a word! It is good to get to the end of this.

    Yay, another one bites the dust!

    Tell us more:

    - which court, which Judge

    - how did you feel, nervous?

    - what was their rep's face like when they lost?!

    Note that CEL are going all the way on some of these [MSE defences?] but not others. And paying for a legal rep. Changing their game again.
    If you want to win - avoid losing first. Here are a few examples
    1. Failing to Acknowledge or Defend https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5760415
    2. Template defences that say nothing https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5818671&page=5#86
    3. Forgetting about the Witness Statement
