Appealing appeal

Lou1970Lou1970 Member Posts: 5 Listener
Hi
Could you tell me if it is worth my while appealing my appeal decision. As I did have a motoability car up till last year when it was taken away from me. I’ve had the same medical problems for last 10 years. Till 3 years ago I wasn’t in full time employment and I go a motoability car. Now I’m working full time with my medical problems the car has been taken away.

    What do you mean appeal your appeal decision? Which stage are you at Mandatory Reconsideration or Tribunal?

    You need to request the statement of reasons and record of proceedings. If no error in law is found then you won't be able to take it any further.

    You have one month to request a statement of reasons and a record of proceedings. You then need to use those to identify one of the five possible errors of law although you may need face to face advice to do that. Most decisions have an error of law within them. It’s near impossible to make a decision without one. However, whether it’s worth doing at all is something you’ll need advice on e.g. there’s no point in applying for leave to appeal if you would be unlikely to win a second first tier tribunal. So... request the SOR and ROP if you’re in time abd then go from there.

    They was asking stupid questions like how do you measure distance and what’s on my walk home any seats. No how does it make you feel when you walk. Which puts me in a lot of pain legs feel weak. Plus they didn’t even care that I’m getting strangers want to give me lift home as my walking is so bad.

    None of that is “stupid”. If you’re quoting distances at them then they’re entitled to ask how you know. If you walk home then they’re entitled to ask whether you stop; where; for how long and so on. How it makes you feel is not irrelevant but it’s also not central. All they need to know is how far can you walk reliably and the latter is very precisely defined. 

    You ask total strangers to give you a lift home! 

    Everything you’ve just posted suggests you were unrepresented and not really clear on what you were arguing about. You need advice.

    No i dont ask strangers to give me a lift home I’m not that stupid to as value my life. I have to walk a mile or more in dark very little lighting up very steep hill as I’ve missed the last bus up hill by time I got of bus from different company that don’t go my way. Their is no seating just handle rail to help up very steep hill. Most nights I could just as easy sit on pavement by horse and not move as I hate the hill and pain it puts me in. Other people  appear and Vanish by time Ive turn corner they are nowhere to be seen they walk so fast.
