    Need Information On Filing A Lawsuit Against Canadian Tire

    I am filing a lawsuit against Canadian Tire for cutting up the drivers seat in my Chrysler Prowler. To replace the seat it costs $5500. At first they wanted to pay for it. Then started giving me the run around and not taking responsibility for it. I need to know who to file the lawsuit against, Canadian Tire Automotive Department, Canadian Tire Store or Canadian Tire Corporation ?. I need to make sure I do this right so I don't have to go through the process again. This will be just a small claim court case. One Lawyer I talked to wanted $3000 to go to court and $500 to send them a letter. I figured its better just to file the lawsuit in small claims court. That might get them to pay and avoid court costs. Sending a letter through a lawyer I doubt they will pay for damages and I will be out a quick $500. Thanks

    I believe you'll need to get the paperwork together and then serve the papers (or have them served) to the owner of the store (since most of them are independently owned).

    I got the forms from the courthouse I have to fill out and return. I don't think the one in Sault Ste. Marie is independently owned. I should contact a lawyer and try and get some information. If I do it wrong then I will have to re-do it over again.

    Every single Canadian Tire is independently owned....Canadian Tire Corporation is not allowed to have any corporate stores....contract dating back 86 years now.

    Dear "Last Ride" I sued in small claims court using the name
    Canadian Tire
    store # 123
    address .
    You can find the store number by Google search,phone book etc.
    The judge told me that it was proper to use the legal business name of the company
    that operated that store but went through anyway.

    Re: Need Information On Filing A Lawsuit Against Canadian Tire

    To "Last Ride" , You are not suing persons nor departments,
    You are suing the company that owns that Can.Tire. Store.
    I would refer to as: Canadian Tire, Store number, complete address with postal code,
    and Name of the company that owns and operates that store.
    Ask the Small Claims Court they will also give You a bunch of pages instructions
    on how and what to do,prcedures etc.
    You have to have CLEAR claim that is a specific exact amount of $$ and how you
    came up at that amount detailed and precise so the Judge then can award You with that,
    or else even if he wants to award to you the claim he can not justify it to the court.
    You do not have to have all the needed "Evidence Proof, witness etc.(if you have it its great
    but what matters it is that the Judge will understand).
    Just try to write your case in a simple way any way you think it is good,
    the Judge needs that to help You, -make it easy for the Judge -.
    The cost to file a claim $ 75.00 and do not need a paralegal or lawyer -its up to you- at start at least,
    you may do that later.
    Also dig some info through Google (Canada or USA just about the same) such as
    small claims court - Google Search
