We have three or four Greeks, but all but the one I am now fighting, had bad marks against their name, for one thing or the other.

Does anyone one have any idea, if I could be saddled with huge legal bills, if the insurance company decided to back the restaurant, and I lost in the small claims court?

So far, two people have added their comment in the review bit of said restaurant on FB. If anyone else would like to 'donate ' a few words, to keep the ball rolling, then yes please.

I am Rhea (from Hampshire).

It can be quite easy to cross  'that ever wavering thin blue line' with matters posted online; words misinterpreted or inadvertently spiked by an unknown jester.

My advise would be, just to stick with the Small Claims Court.  ( In my understanding , Judgements are usually proportionate to damages)

It is not my favourite way of communicating, and I was quite apprehensive about it, but it seems to work sometimes. And it was actually one of the routes advised by CAB to get results. The lady was quite surprised I had not gone there already.
I think it is going to be the small claims court in the end.

I am no Legal eagle Re, but as I understand it, they accepted Liability by informing their insurers, and your claim will likely be successful!

Whether or not their insurance reimburses them is their seperate problem in matter - ::) Public Liability Insurance premiums etc.

I am quite surprised that CAB suggested FB  as that root can be an open house to twist'n of words.

I am not sure that informing your insurer, is a form of accepting liability. Through their insurer, they now contest liability, and have come up with a totally different version of events. But at least they do not deny 'an incident' happened on that day.
It is over to me again.

Informing an insurer is merely asking them to deal with a claim on the insured. It does not in any way indicate acceptance of liability, just the existence of a claim.
