Responding to a claim - Car crashes
Defend the claim
You may defend the claim because you don’t think you are at fault. Get legal advice. Court does not always end the way you want!
Admit to all of the claim
You may agree you owe the full amount of the claim and court costs. You can ask to pay by instalments.
Admit to part of the claim
Agree you owe part of the claim. You can offer to pay what you think is fair to settle the claim in full. The claimant may accept your offer. If they do not, the matter will proceed through court.
