Discrimination, harassment, maladministration, negligence, personal injury
Hi, I know a little about the law. Capita have asked me to attend a PIP assessment twice, I rang up and told them I could not. Despite this, Capita and DWP have sent yet another appointment. I will not be attending and I will send a letter before action because as far as I can see, this is harassment, discrimination under the Equality Act 2010 and maladministration, Breach of European Convention on Human Rights, (including a breach of my Right to life when they know this could threaten my life, and my right to freedom from torture as putting me through mental anguish deliberately is torture. This is because I have mental health issues of severe depression and anxiety and they don't care, they know that putting me through this could cause me to take an overdose as I am not at all well at them moment (Bipolar/ ADHD, Aspergers, OCD, fibromyalgia, joint hyper-mobility syndrome, Heart problem, blood lipid problem, severe risk of heart attack, asthma and severe allergies, they have repeatedly been told by medically trained doctors who are superior to their health assessors to leave me alone as I am not well enough to be assessed at the moment. I will send a letter before action and if they continue to harass me throw the book at them.. The difference is that I do know the law and I know how to take them to court and I will. This is making me ill and I know its a risk to my life by getting stressed out taking them to court but I feel i have no choice; I will get stressed out from an assessment and I know my rights. They have been repeatedly told by two doctors not to put me through an assessment at the moment and they are ignoring the doctors. My claim will be for failure to make a reasonable adjustment under the Equality Act, Harassment, maladministration resulting in negligence and personal injury. Wish me luck. I will look at doing a class action if I can cope with this. I may be disabled but Im not stupid as they seem to think I am.
