A civil claim is an action which is issued in a court or tribunal in the UK by one party against another. A party being an individual, a business, Government department or some other organisations.
We have a great deal of experience in the area and we can:
- Advise you on your claim or the claim against you and what options are available to you
- Correspond with the other party
- Issue or defend court proceedings
- Provide or arrange representation at court
Civil disputes include recovery of loss for a breach of contract, employment complaints, unpaid debt, personal injury, housing or land disputes.
Generally action is taken through the County Court, where the lower value claims are allocated to the small claims court. (Currently under £10,000 – £1,000 for personal injury claims).
It is generally prudent to attempt to settle a complaint out of court.
