Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
DO you have medical evidence that the further deterioration is a direct result of the injury?
You need to get a detailed medical report that confirms that the increased pain is directly linked to the initial injury.
An Xray is not enough.
What do your doctors say is the cause of this further damage, do they link it to the initial injury or not?
If your surgeon does not agree that it is linked to the injury you have a problem.
He is the expert that you have to rely on.
Why is he of another opinion and what does he say is the cause?
Your surgeon has to prepare a detailed report and has to be prepared to give evidence and cross examined on his finding.
This is what is required.
I am not sure how long you have to appeal the decision of the board but this has to be done ASAP and you should get solicitors that deal with personal injury claims to assist and get the evidence together but you require a detailed report to be prepared.
Providing the X-rays only does not give evidence that it is connected to the accident.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
