How can a court case proceed without proof that the defendant was notified? This seems ludicrous. Now nearly a year after the court case, we have been served with papers to attend a hearing regarding what I can only imagine to be payment. Can someone please explain the process?
The details of the case was that someone alleged to have fell in front of our commercial property and broke their leg. There isn't any record of an ambulance being called, nor were we notified or aware of the event previously. They apparently sent paperwork for the initial court hearing to both us and the adjacent property, whom they are also suing. Neither of us received such paperwork. As an obvious result, neither defendants were at the case, yet it proceeded anyway! Is this some sort of dodgy tactic?
