There is a lawyer in Wellington who has specialised in these claims called Sonya Cooper of Cooper Legal. http://www.sonjacooperlaw.co.nz/ I suggest you click on her website and see if you want to instruct her. These calims often have difficulties with the time to make a claim, and of course MSD will have lawyers acting for them. If you are not feeling confident about confronting them, and experienced lawyer can be very helpful
