Defective wheelchair refunded

Bob is a paraplegia.  He recently purchased an electric wheelchair for approximately $9,000. It turned out to be defective.

Law students volunteering at Suncoast Community Legal Serivce assisted him by preparing a letter of demand and, subsequently, an application to QCAT. The Tribunal agreed that Bob was entitled to a full refund of the purchase price.

*Not his real name.
