Court orders Atos to pay disabled woman £5,000 over dishonest PIP assessment

A court has ruled that a disabled woman should be awarded £5,000 compensation by the government contractor Atos, after a dishonest report by one of its assessors led to her being awarded the wrong level of benefits.

Vanessa Haley, from Huddersfield, told the county court in her written evidence that the assessor had tried to “impede her entitlement” to the enhanced rate of the daily living component of personal independence payment (PIP) by “falsifying” her assessment report.

The assessment report also led to her being denied any PIP mobility support.

Not much indeed jeff3. 5 grand is a pinch of what they ATOS et-all earn.

Could it be the fact of awarding more. DWP would use it as having an amount over the limit for any payment to be made. Some post around the net stated this, and I have to agree maybe they were right. Anything more, then she would have been hit for having to much savings.
