Lying professional assessor

PaulSalterPaulSalter Member Posts: 10 Connected
As some may recall, I recently had pip assessment. All seemed in my favour, as well as a promise from the assessor for the mobility component due to my epilepsy. Received copy of report and seems I've got someone else's report. No I hadn't. The assessor has lied. On every aspect she has disagreed with my disability (not just E). I told her for instance, I last had a seizure at the end of June while in hospital following 4 stents and having  a heart attack during procedure. She reported my last seizure was March and that I thought my seizures were controlled.  I last saw my neurologist on the 21st June. She reported that I hadn't seen my neurologist for many months. The lies go on and on. I think she realised I was weak had no confidence, no self esteem etc and thought she'd strike me off the governments list of burdens. How wrong was she. I'm waiting to see a professional person who specialises in these disputes. If her decision is over turned in a tribunal  can I perse to sue her for ********* of character and lying.

    You are extremely lucky in finding someone who will help you through the appeal process. I read on here that even the CAB are telling claimants to go somewhere else.
    No you can't sue anybody. The report from the assessor is not a factual statement bound by their code of ethics. It is an opinion much the same that your window cleaner could give.

    The Assessor should not have promised you anything. Mine made it very clear that she just does a report and that she does not make the decision.
