    Hello jose2

    When a decision is challenged the award already in place can be considered. This means a tribunal could increase the award, keep it at the same rate or decrease the award.  It is very rare for a tribunal to reduce an existing award but unfortunately it can happen, and i cannot offer any guarantees.

    One thing to consider if you are worried, is what length of award PIP gave you.  If it is a short award, then you can wait for the renewal to see if an increased award can be made.  If it is a long award, then it may be worth you seeking advice for example from a local CAB, Law Center to discuss your case.
