How to File Complaints Against Bupa in Small Claims Court

- The first step is to write the defendant a letter of complaint. This letter is referred to as a letter before action. Most judges want you to prove you made a genuine effort to resolve the matter outside the court.
- Prepare for the case by collecting relevant evidence, including receipts, photos, videos, or witness statements.
- To start your claim, you need to fill out a claim form (N1). Use the form to provide details of both the claimant and defendant, the nature of the claim and its value
- In the section labelled particulars of claim, describe in detail the claim you are making
- Once you have completed the form, and submit it to the court, deliver two copies along with the court fees due. The fee payable depends on the value of your claim
- After the court receives the form, it will serve it to the defendant by mailing it to them by first class. The defendant will then decide to defend the case or not.
What Happens If the Defendant Ignores My Claim?
If the defendant doesn't accept they owe you money, they must respond within 14 days of the form being served on them. If a response is not received within the deadline, the court imposes an order on the defendant, known as a default judgement.
Can I Appeal a Small Claims Decision?
Yes. You can appeal the decision of a small claims court if you are not satisfied with it. If you wish to appeal a small claims court decision, you must file a notice of appeal within 21 days of the decision being announced. However, you should remember that appeals will only be successful if a mistake has been made in the application of the law or if there were serious irregularities in the hearing.
