Pip tribunal. How do I prove assessor lied
I have my pip tribunal tomorrow. I have Parkinson's and lost most of my pip. Have waited 13 months for a tribunal. When I was assessed, they abandoned the physical assessment after the first exercise where she asked me to reach around my back as she could see my movement is very restricted and painful. In the report apparently I passed the whole remit of physical assessments with flying colours including touching my toes which I couldn't do before Parkinson's. I lost points repeatedly because my grip and pinch strength were normal and yet these were never tested. The assessor said she would recommend enhanced for both. I went down to standard for daily component and lost all my mobility points. My whole appeal is based on these lies. What can I do to prove the tests were not done. They either believe me or her.
