My man has just been chucked from the system. We really need a good lawyer FAST in the Manawatu or Southern Hawkes Bay area. TIA

Several lawyers will take cases from outside their own area. Can I suggest you contact ( in no particular order) one of the lawyers below as they are known to specialise in ACC law.

Phil Schmidt (Auckland)
Ivan Gough Young (upper north island??)
John Miller Law (Wellington)
Johnathan McCarthy (Chch)
Peter Sara ( Dunedin)

After 3 yrs of accepting he had a traumatic pneumothorax (diagnosed by numerous specialists) they found a specialist in Wellington to state ( after reading 5 inaccurate reports) that it was a spontaneous pneumothorax, therefore wiping their obligations even though it followed a workplace accident. Have been in touch with a legal advocate this afternoon and will be visiting with him tomorrow. Thanx for the other names. Will keep them on standby.

usuall story accept the claim and then say that there is no cover.

Should sue the employer or tell the employer that the cover has now been declined.

Except in this case doppelganger they accepted the claim and cover, and have been contributing (albeit slowly) towards his rehab for over three years. I think the fact that ACC have accepted his claim for lump sum disability was a prompter in getting him off the books before a payout was granted. Sorry for the delay in responses but am sharing this PC with teenagers right now.

And the ex-employer (he terminated the employment after six months of cover on medical grounds) flew from Auckland today to assist in bearing the news.
