How our Advice Helped Daniel

Daniel was told he wasn't entitled to Disability Living Allowance even though he suffered from uncontrollable seizures and his medication for the seizures caused him some terrible side effects that had a real impact on his day to day life.

With our help Daniel was able to appeal the decision, and attended a tribunal with our support.

We were able to demonstrate that he satisfied the criteria for an award of the enhanced rate of the mobility component on the grounds he has severely limited mobility, so the decision was overturned and the family income increased by £58 a week as a result.

If, like Daniel, you believe that your benefits claim has been rejected unfairly we might be able to help you to challenge the decision. Get in touch now for free and impartial advice
