Understanding Small Claims Forms



If you have ever filled out small claims forms you might be able to relate to the pain of many. To a first timer, filling our forms in Small Claims Court can be an intimidating task, mostly due to unfamiliarity and sometimes the complex look of the form itself. If you are someone who hasn’t ever filed a lawsuit on your own you might find this section helpful particularly as it relates to filling out small claims forms.

This short article must be read in conjunction with the other articles in this section about how to sue the airlines. If you have read some of my other articles you might already be aware that this website is meant for someone who has suffered from airline abuse and wants to sue the airline company. You are in the right place if you have an airline complaint!

To make filling out small claims forms simple, the key is to break it down into four fundamental sections:

-Plaintiff
-Defendant
-Registered Agent
-Personal Information

Whenever you file a legal claim in court, there is always a Plaintiff and a Defendant to the complaint. The Plaintiff is you, the person bringing on the complaint and the Defendant is the party you are suing.

An important thing to remember is the use of full legal names when filling out these two sections. Write your complete name and information in the Plaintiff section. If you are filling on behalf of your family write down everyone’s full legal name. Similarly, you must research the full legal name of the company you are bringing the lawsuit on. For example, The Airline Company may have a legal name like TAC Limited, Inc. So be careful here and do your research.

The trickiest part is probably the section where you have to address the complaint to someone. Many people write the name of the company they are suing here. This is wrong. Do your research and find out who the registered agent is in your State of the airline company you are suing. Address the complaint to them so that the process server can get it to the right party. It is the agent’s job to relay such claims to the airline company.

Finally, the small claims form is concluded by a small section asking your signature and your date. This is very important. Without your signature the process will not move forward. As always when in doubt always consult the court clerk or others nearby. Remain calm and most importantly go into the process educated and informed about how to sue the airlines and how to start and follow through the legal procedure until you collect your recourse.
