The Outside Independent Surgeon's Report to ACC...

This is what the Cochlear implant specialist said in his report to ACC. Unfortuantely I wasn't able to cut and paste text but had to upload them as images as it was a scanned document.

Hi Robyn,
This is frustrating. They get an expert opinion who provides a very concise and unequivocal endorsement of your claim for 'Treatment Injury'.

They then get legal support to add semantics and distortion to the expert advise, They should not have wasted his time or yours.

I'm pretty sure you would have won if challenged. Here is a copy of an email I received tonight.

"John Pittar here in Gisborne has been battling with Acc to prove his hearing impairment was industrial. Anyway he took them to review and has won his case! He is booked in for his second implant next month ..His first implant was publically funded. It's such an opening for many more we are hopeing. The Southern implant waiting list is simply horrendous ..heaps of assessments and just no funding to follow this through. It's so sad."
