Reducing claim for a defendant

Cara acted for the Defendant in an MOJ Stage 3 with a claim for damages for credit hire, removal and storage costs and physiotherapy costs.

The credit hire agreement had not been signed until months after the hire had finished and the full documents had not been disclosed. The removal and storage and physiotherapy costs were disputed as they were not seen as a reasonable cost for the services.

The claim for credit hire was dismissed due to the enforceability issues raised and the amounts claimed for the other sums reduced to a reasonable compromise between the amount claimed and the amount offered by the Defendant.
