  3. Hi All I am in the process of buying two mobility Scooters via the internet I have paid for them and one has been delivered to me Friday. The one that was delivered on Friday is not fit for purpose as it is a fold up electric one that is dangerous for me to use as it is to flimsy.

The question I would like to be answered is is it the case of the company can refuse to take it back or offer me something back! Richie

  6. I have mobility problems which only really affects me when the weather starts to change.

  10. Hello, I hope someone can put us right on this please? Mum is now in care home permanently. We know about Attendance Allowance for dad as the local authority (welfare rights) have taken over making an application for him. What we are confused about is mum's DLA. She gets both components at the higher rate and has done since the early 90's. She always exchanges the mobility element for a Motability car. She obtained a new one some 5 months ago. The car is our dad's lifeline (mum can't drive as she has never passed a driving test) due to the complete lack of local shops/bank/post office

  12. Hi, Need some advice regarding a mobility scooter that my wife and I bought. It developed some problems and we tried to get the company to rectify them. They refused and during the swapping of emails they tried to bully and intimidate me. I sent them a formal complaint about this and about the refusal to fix the scooter. They totally ignored the formal complaint. I sent a letter before action, which they have also totally ignored. In the letter before action I said that if no response was forthcoming that I would then send them a bill for the cost of the replacemen

  14. I was having a chat with my parents about various benefits and it started a big debates on DLA and Mobility. I don't know if anyone can help ... basically my parents (both 68 years old) recieve DLA and Mobility component plus their pension and housing benefit. They are worried that DLA and mobility is changing and worry over losing this benefit as it is a large amount that contributes to their bills and general expenses. My Father who is ill gets the top rate on both components and my Mother who is also unwell but not as serious gets the middle rate on both components. They are worried sick as
  15. I had an accident last year and i fractured my coccyx. It never got any better. I have recently been referred to Muscular Skeletal Clinic and diagnosed with severe Coccydinia. I cannot sit for longer than 10 mins without being in agony and that pain makes it horrendous to move positions. I cannot stand up properly, takes me a good 5 minutes to do so. I cant walk at normal speed, I have a stick to help me and I have to have help getting into bed as i cannot lift my legs onto the bed. Is it worth appealing?

My employer has decided to move me to another site this is part of the outcome of a disciplinary I am also getting a final written warning. at my appeal hearing I said I was not happy to be moved and asked how they can move me without consultation as there is no mobility clause in my contract it just states my place of work.

  20. Hi everyone, Just received notification from motability that my car for my disabled son is being collected in a month as he no longer qualifies for the higher rate of mobility component for DLA. Curiously this arrived BEFORE any notification from DWP. We only had any warning as we had telephoned them on the previous day. As we are only 1 year into the contact that means we get 2/3 of the advanced payment back however: The paper work says that we are still liable for the 24(ish) outstanding payments as it is a 3 year contract, and this is confirmed by the small print of the
