Can anyone define when a broken bone that has not healed and will never heal, becomes ok to walk on and your suddenly fit to work. This causes constant pain but none of ACC specialists seem to think its an issue. Of course it is not part of their body we are talking about. Also why is the word of the Doctor you have trusted with your health not good enough for Acc to accept their word as they treat you all the time. Acc specialists see you once ( most of the time they haven't even read your file before you arrive) and they are suddenly an expert on you and your condition.

It sounds as if your private GP's sympathetic opinion has been outranked by a sergeants.
You may need to consult in another specialist opinion thats independant of the Acc if your not inclined to except their opinion as to your work abilities in your current state.

Your Gp is more than likely NOT qualified in particular fields as the specialists you have already seen are, and the Acc rightly don't have as much respect of Gp opinions when specialists have done specialised training.

Start by clarifying your argument.

Which bone. What type of fracture. Why did it not heal. Was this due to [i] a problem with rehabilitation [ii] a metabolic problem or other disease process [iii] other.

What causes the pain. Here you will need a professional medical opinion. Assuming for the moment that the pain is caused by the original injury and can be elucidated medically, then, you have made your case with regard to 'cause in fact'. What remains is to make your case through 'cause in law'.

Clearly ACC are looking to negate your entitlement. You will need then to start the fight through review.

INDEPENDENT ALLOWANCE ... DO you already have this.?

If not then you must start the process... case Mangler must give you the correct info on this...
as this will establish the correct extent of Permanent Injury and related problems...

Do this application via your GP with
each injury / or injury issue listed on a separate medical cert...

please ask for a referral to an Orthopaedic Specialist...(your GP will be able to access this)

then also ask for CT or MRI of non working bone are

perhaps a bone density scan as well, which will prove whether there is live bone capable of healing....


those are the only reports you will need, as VERY FEW of the "so called acc specialists" have any qualification apart from manipulating medical reports!!!

this is now being challenged more and more in courts...as acc offer opinion only and cannot treat you, or change any treatment plans!...

keep it as simple as you can...

all the best.
