Mandoraty reconsideration put into lcw instead of lcwra
Hi i was wondering if any one had any advice or information on a WCA decision. I was put into the lcw group instead of the LCWRA one. The assessor left out loads of key factors in the report basically stitching me up and putting me in the lcw group when I believe I should be in the LCWRA. I had an accident at work 10 years ago leaving me suffering with ptsd, anxiety depression and body dismorfia, I suffer with social anxiety and suicidal thoughts on a daily basis I also receive pip high rate daily living allowance. Ive recently requested a mandatory reconsideration and sent in further evidence. I've sent in my award letter off pip and a typed letter off my probation officer stating the fact I have a very long history of violent outbursts in and out of prison and that he believes me being putting into lcw instead of lcwra could have serious consequences on the state of my mental health and could put me and other people at serious risk of violence due to me being stressed and anxious about the decision.Also there could be a good chance of me turning to alcohol an drugs again due to stress an anxiety. I also take anti depressants and strong nerve damage pain killers which cause me dizzines and confusion on a daily basis. What i wanted to know was do you think the pip award letter and the letter off probation would change there decision at mandoraty reconsideration or even what are the chances of them standing up in the court of appeal tribunal? Should these factors be enough to put me into LCWRA group. Thanks in advance
