If someone owes you money and you cannot settle things any other way, you may decide to issue a claim in the County Court. People can also claim for other reasons, including:
• bad workmanship;
• damage to their property;
• personal injury;
• road traffic accidents; and
• goods not supplied.
The system for handling straighforward claims with a financial value of £10,000 or less is designed to be quick, easy to use and low cost.
At Citizens Advice Portsmouth we may be able to help you gain access to justice, advise you on your entitlements, help you to pursue compensation for accidents and injuries and give advice and guidance about going to court.
If necessary, we can also make you an appointment with a legal representative.
More information about dealing with legal issues can be found on the national Citizens Advice website Adviceguide.
Please note that you may incur costs when seeking legal advice.
