How to Take Pep Boys to Small Claims Court if You Can't Resolve Your Issue
If you decide to go ahead with a small claims lawsuit, you'll follow these steps.
1. Contact the county clerk.
First, you'll start by getting in touch with the county clerk in the county where the company's headquarters is located. Pep Boys is based in Philadelphia. If you don't live near the corporate headquarters, you may be able to sue in the county of the Pep Boys location where you received service.
2. Complete complaint form.
The complaint form includes:
- A description of your complaint
- The amount of damages you're seeking
- Any evidence you have
You'll also need to pay a filing fee.
3. Send a claim to the defendant.
Once you've filed your claim, you'll need to serve your claim document to the defendant. You may be able to send this yourself or pay for a sheriff or private process server to do it for you. The county clerk will be able to give you more information about exactly how this works in your county.
4. Attend a pretrial hearing.
The company will have a set amount of time to respond to your claim. They may be willing to settle at this point, or you may need to attend a pretrial hearing depending on where you live. This will be a last attempt to resolve the dispute before going to trial. Hopefully, the defendant will be willing to settle at this point.
5. Attend trial.
Make sure that you are prepared with what you plan to say, and bring as much evidence as possible. You'll present your side first. Clearly explain what happened and back it up with any proof or witnesses that are available. Then the defendant will present their side. The judge will ask questions, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions as well. Then the judge will issue a ruling.
While you don't need to hire an attorney for a small claims lawsuit, going through the process without one can be stressful and make you less likely to succeed.
