  1. I've sued Taylor Wimpey before (as a resident of the Viewpoint development), and they cave rather easily I have to say, although being a lawyer certainly helped. In terms of FOI requests, TW aren't a public body, but there is a way that this information could be requested and obtained. Basically, if you are suggesting that an illegal act has been committed (I don't know whether that's correct), there's potential civil action that could be taken. You could argue that there's been some form of nuisance or other tort that has taken place, and you're then considering legal action against that company for civil damages. Perfectly reasonable. Your course of action then is a pre-action disclosure application to the Court, arguing that you need that information to assess the merits of the claim. Without the information, you don't know whether the claim has merits or not. The further basis of the application is that if the information is provided, and there is no claim, then the Court's time won't be wasted. Judges love that argument. As a potential Party to a civil action (they're potentially the Defendant if you can find an arguable tort), then you have every right to make the application, and I would strongly suspect that TW would cave and give you the information you require. Just my thoughts anyway.
  2. Hi, I'm sure we could help you. We're a wedding band, and I'm sure can do what you need (in fact we've played a couple of those as first dances before). Have a look at our website for an idea of what we do - http://www.rockandsoulmachine.co.uk Any questions, just give me a shout. Thanks
  3. Does anyone have a map of the route please? I can't work out the Norfolk Arms bit. Also, does anyone know if the junior fun run starts around the same time? Ideally I'd like to do the half and then the fun run with my daughter but I'm doubting that's possible.
  4. Two people will need to supervise them too. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android

  6. Someone on Sheffield Online found it. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  7. Excellent news. I'd dread my daughter losing her favourite bear! Glad they're reunited! Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  8. Never been on West St on a Saturday when the students aren't here then. It happens every week due to alcohol and the large number of people who drink. Some are students. Plenty aren't. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  9. Any idea what time the fireworks start here? I've not been to this one before. Do they have other things on too? Thanks Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  10. Old rectory in Handsworth? Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  11. Indeed! Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  12. Other offences apply too. The definition of road in the RTA includes roads or other public places to which the public have access. For that reason car parks like Asda would fall within the definition. I've had clients arrested for drink driving in car parks before. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  13. Definitely went not guilty. It's a public car park though so standard traffic law applies. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  14. Between Morrisons and Asda, probably not. Between Aldi and Waitrose, there's a huge difference. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  15. Exactly. And cars of course! Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  16. I've been driving 20 years and have yet to have a car where the head rest sits against the back of my head. I've never seen anyone's do that come to think of it. Added to that in rear end stunts it makes no difference as the injury is caused by moving forward away from the headrest. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  17. I was talking about this the other day. It's hideous. Cacamax is the dog one. Collect dog poo. Why? Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  18. It's land that the public have access to and therefore falls under the Road Traffic Act unless the car park is gated (ie with no public access). Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  19. Not much to say on point 2, but on point 1, I've plenty to add. The clampdown on claims, whether genuine or not, continues. There are a number of points to mention. Firstly, you mention low speed collisions (LVIs - low velocity impacts). These have been dealt with for some years now - at least 8 years, and the medico legal industry is live to the problem. Where LVI is alleged, insurers are very, very keen to deal with these. Claims are taken out of the MOJ portal system, and dealt with fully, whereby Defendants will get their own experts to argue this point, if they feel it relevant. Claims for accidents under a certain speed will ALWAYS result in this happening. Can it be stopped? No. In the same way that people claiming on their household insurance for items that weren't stolen in a burglary can't be stopped. That one is never mentioned as much in the Daily Mail though, despite it being far more common. It still puts up premiums though, and is still fraud. Mind you, people lying on insurance proposals isn't mentioned either. LVI claims are certainly decreasing, and I can assure you, lawyers don't mind this. I wouldn't personally take on a claim if someone told me they'd been injured at 4mph. I'd tell them to get a grip. In terms of claims generally, there is a huge push to stop people being able to claim altogether. Costs are limited to the point of being ridiculous (£500, regardless of how long the claim takes), doctors fees are now very limited, and even where someone is entirely blame free, they're generally expected to lose 25% of the damages they're entitled to. That's another argument though. The only good point to come from the government's anti-Claimant stance is that claims management companies seem to be largely dying out, since the referral fee ban. That's a good thing. Solicitors don't stand on street corners trying to get claims (that would be illegal). Solicitors don't cold call/text (again illegal). These are claims management company tactics, and I, along with many of my colleagues, won't miss them one bit as they give us a bad name.
  20. Seconded. Although I'd rate them more highly. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  21. Don't use WebMD. Everything is cancer. I had a headache once - brain tumour. A sore throat was apparently a symptom of throat cancer.
  22. If that's true and I'm sure you're right then what use are they? Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  23. Frightening isn't it. It stuns me that people believe the tarot cards are anything more than a pack of cards. Ah the seven of diamonds. That means you're generally a quiet person, particularly with new people, but when you're with your friends you can really come out of your shell. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  24. It's no more a ridiculous notion than religion, astrology, any form of mediumship, tarot and many others but they still have "experts". You can even do degrees in religious studies. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  25. I was considering Google Adwords (is that the one you use?). So you've had a good success rate with it? I'm trying to work out how it's done - I'm considering getting an SEO type person to look at it I think.
