My case was adjourned. I'm still waiting for a new date after 2 months and an urgent hearing request
I applied for PIP back in October 2019 and I was awarded 0 points total and got the same result for my mandatory reconsideration a few months later. I appealed to tribunals around May/June ish 2020 and early January this year I got a date for the 25th of January. The hearing lasted 5 mins and I was told by the judge that my solicitor should collect more evidence to submit to my case and the judge also wanted the tribunals to be able to access my medical records. My solicitor strongly believes that I should have been awarded 26 points for daily living and 14 for mobility and I think the judge didn't want me to have an unfair trial and adjourned the case so that further evidence can be collected and that I can then be awarded what I deserve. Fast forward to today and 2 months after all the evidence was collected and my case has been ready to list, I'm still waiting for a new date even though I won an urgent hearing request 3 weeks ago. I call and they tell me the same thing every time, "as soon as a date is available we will give it to you" but I'm not buying it. what should I do?
