"Overturned" means that a higher court has reviewed a decision made by a lower court or tribunal and has decided to change or reverse that decision.

When making a personal injury claim, if a decision in your case is overturned on appeal, it means that the higher court has determined that the original decision was incorrect and has made a new decision in your favour. This can result in an award of compensation, or a change in the amount of compensation awarded to you.

Overturned is the opposite of 'upheld'.
