My electric wheelchair as been damaged going down a so called "drop down kerb" which as resulted in the footplate, and the arm it fixes to, getting bent which means it get stuck on the left wheel, i have reported it but they have said any repairs have to be sorted out by me as there not guaranteeing the council will accept liability,so if i pay out and they dont admit fault what would be my next step, also is there anywhere i can get a bit of free legal advice about were i stand on this?
