Should I Take Flamingo Land to Small Claims Court?

Ideally, court action should not be your first attempt to get redress. Before taking court action, it is prudent to show you tried to settle a claim using other methods. The court would expect you to have already done the following, failure to which you will be penalised:

  1. You have to make your claim to the defendant in writing. You can do this by writing a complaint letter.
  2. Give the defendant a reasonable amount of time to reply.
  3. You must warn the other person you intend to take court action if they fail to act within the specified time.

What Counts as a Small Claim?

Small claims court is actually a procedure used to solve simpler cases involving small amounts of money. In the UK, a small claims court handles cases of under £10,000. Some of the benefits of small claims are that you can apply online and try to keep it as simple as possible. Besides, you don't need a lawyer, meaning the costs are minimal.

What Are the Limits on Small Claims?

Small claims courts have limits on the amount of compensation litigants seek. If your claim is for a larger amount, you have little chance of being in small claims.

  • In England and Wales, the claim must be below £10,000.
  • In Scotland, the small claims maximum is £5,000
  • In Northern Ireland, the limit is £3,000.

If you are just above the limit, consider lowering the asking amount even if you had demanded more in your earlier letters.

Do I Need an Attorney to File a Complaint Against Flamingo Land in Small Claims Court?

In most cases, you don't need a lawyer to take someone to small claims court. The small claims system is purposely designed with this in mind.

Steps to Making a Small Claim Against Flamingo Land on Your Own

The following are some of the steps to make a small claim:

  1. Prepare the case: It is crucial to prepare the case fully since you need to convince the court of your damages. Collect evidence such as videos and pictures and collect witness statements where possible.
  2. Write a complaint letter: As mentioned earlier, you need to write a before-action letter informing the defendant of your damages and that you intend to send demand letters to.
  3. Fill in the claim form: Fill in a form called a "Particulars of Claim", which is a statement telling your side of the story. Include all details of what you are claiming for and why.
  4. Start court action: Send copies of the claim form to the court and ensure you keep an extra copy for your records. The court will stamp the claim form and serve it to the defendant.
