The Herald reported:
A lawyer has won a three-year battle against ACC, which claimed pain she suffered after a car crash was from degeneration and not a neck injury.
When Madeleine Flannagan appealed against the decision to cut her entitlements – and before the case could be heard in the District Court – ACC accepted her injury was caused by the accident and offered the Orewa woman a settlement.
It’s a pity it took a court case to achieve this.
Madeleine blogs about the case in more detail here.
