"My only regret was not using their services from the start as this would have saved me a lot of time and stress and made me aware of what to expect from the start". Mr O.C. Whitminster, Gloucestershire.
THE CLAIM FORM GET IT RIGHT FIRST TIME
THE CLAIM FORM - STARTING YOUR LEGAL ACTION
I have seen, and have assisted with, numerous cases since I started my business, where the claimant had issued Court Proceedings but the defendant (or the Judge) had contested the claim, citing issues with the Claim Form. Probably the most common error I have seen is insufficient information given in the Particulars of Claim, or even (not infrequently) this section left completely blank.
Some such issues can lead to your case being struck out, meaning, at best, you must start again, and at worst, you end up paying costs incurred by the defendant on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour, and of course another court fee.
Furthermore, even if your Claim Form is free of errors, if you do not include in your Claim Form and Particulars of Claim all arguments you intend raising in your case, you cannot raise them later at Trial.
It is critical that you get this right at the start.
My guide includes:
- Detailed instructions to enable you to produce a Claim Form and Particulars of Claim which will help you avoid the usual pitfalls, and maximise your prospects of success;
- Links to relevant rules and Court resources which will help you understand your position as Claimant, and launch your claim effectively;
- Instructions to help you to understand what you need to do to prove your claim.
