Ought to I settle for the 5k restrict and go to the small declare courtroom? Since I nonetheless haven’t fastened my automotive I don’t know the precise restore prices, What ought to I present within the courtroom to help my claimed quantity ? Ought to I declare the quantity prematurely and I can’t change it later within the course of like after the fault is determined?
