can you claim against someone for inconvenience?

by admin on December 14, 2010

On saturday night, i left my moped in a private carpark or a social club, people leave there cars there all the time and i have left my moped there many times due to having a drink. There is no ‘park at your own risk’ sign, or cctv camera’s that work. That night some little thugs nicked my bike, trashed it and left it in the woods. I was informed by the police the next morning, these people ( I know there names and who they are but the police can’t prove it!), had caused trouble at the club that evening, causing fights and smashed windows. I am now left with having to pay my excess on the insurance, which I don’t have, I also can’t wait that long for the insurance to sort it out. As now with no transport I have no way of getting to college in the mornings, i get ema which isn’t enough to cover the 20 miles I have to travel everyday. I’ve been told that I have a slight possibility that i could claim against the social club, but im not holding out much hope. Is there any of these no win no fee companies that deal with these sort of things. Because I live in a village in the middle of nowhere and its causing me massive stress in getting to college, there’s no buses, i’ve turned up late every day because I haven’t been able to get there any earlier due to lack of public transport. This has had a huge effect on me emotionally aswell, as I am 17 and skint, my family have no money to help me. So i don’t really know what to do. It seems like the criminals have more rights than the victims, its just not fair.

Go back to the club and hand out fliers to ask if anyone saw the people messing with you moped. If so, maybe they can identify them. If so, you might have a case.

nope, from what i see in your case there is no indication that the establishment was under obligation to protect your moped

probably not , such is the victims plight , you are probably just a statistic , try the students union for legal advice i’m sure they have it because private legal advice will cost . the long and bitter plight of a victim is never considered here , well perhaps considerd but never quantified and no recompense given which ought to change . in the news – re-offenders being given more thought .

The social club holds no liability for your property that wasn’t damaged by the social club.
