Now to start my  story,

I  was a first class  fireman driver   and  was going  for  a promotion  November  1977  Just after  the Hannah's  fire 

 I  sustained  an accident on the  20th November  1977  while  on an exercise   with probationary   fireman    to  become  a senior  fireman  driver

I  didn't   go to hospital  in fact  turned  up  to  work   the next  day  and continued  my  course

 Some  of  this  I can't  remember  to well

My  Last  day  as a fireman  was  the   big  fire  at   the meat  works  aprox   August  1978   when  I  think  i  collapsed on the  job == Think  from  memory   taken to  hospital  Lower Hutt 

I  do remember being  in  Hospital  Lower Hutt

 I  do  remember   going  back  to my  specialist   Mr  Simmonds  who referred  me  to  a Mr  Russell Worth   in Wellington  hospital

I  was admitted  to Wellington  March  or  April  1979   to find  that i  had a broken neck==

This  was  the  real starting  of  all my   major  problems  when  I  was injected  with  a diagnostic  dye  called Myodil    This  i  found out   years later   went  to my brain  after  suffering  for  years  wondering  what  the hell was  wrong  with me   I personally  only have one  word   for  Russell Worth

 

I  left hospital   think  September  1979  well according  to my  records

 I came home   walking  into  more problems When  I found  out  that  ACC  had not  paid   for some  6 weeks  and  that my  taxi  driver  was sleeping  with  my  x wife

 She  walked out    October  1979  and left me  in big  debt  with  5  young  Children  

Then  to   think  that  it  couldn't  get worse    my  world  come  crashing down  around my  ears

ACC  stopped my ERC Earnings  related  compensation  due to a letter  they  received stating  that I was  working == building == driving  taxis  ==  yes  you  got  that right   the letter  came  from my  X wife  and  her  man  friend   and  to  think  I just  came out of  hospital   The  letter  was endorsed  by Russell Worth   I now  know  why 

By 1981  Have lost my health  my  wife== Lost my Taxi's==  then  lost my home  thrown out on the street  with 5  young  children

 at  the top of  the  page  it  says   senior  fireman

 

 to add  to  this is  when I had my accident  I was  a first  class  fireman  driver

 I  was paid by  the  fire service  until  i  was medically  boarded   Or medically  retired

That   was  aprox  November   when  my case  was  handed over  to   The  State Insurance  who  run   the ACC

At  this  stage  I was being  Paid  still  at  the  first  class  rate

Until  recent  when  I picked up  through  my  fire  service notes  that i  did  get my promotion   and  when ACC took over  I was a senior  fire man

But only  got  paid  for  first  class

In  working it out   over the years  a  short  fall of   around  about  $43,680    this is  gross  but  not counting  interest

 

  this is just  the  start

Now ACC down graded my injury  to a strain  or  a sprain

Lump  sum  $400-00   took ACC  to court  up graded  to $800-00  that cost me legal fees 

Good one ACC

From  the  moment  that Myodil was injected in 1979  I started  to have  major  health problems   like  Blackouts  ==Electric  shocks ==  bad  cramps= and many other    issues 

 some  recorded == Doctors  were  saying it is all in  your head 

Well  guess  what  they  were  right   that i  found out  in 1990s

 

Now  to start  a new life  we  being  me  and my 5 children  moved  to Hastings

We moved into a  run  down  condemned old  house  This  was yet another major problem== holes in the  floor  roof leaked  very damp = and cold

Then  came  more problems

Bankruptcy  took me  to  the high court in Napier  over statements  that i made   ==  today  i  still say  i was right   and it  was  caused  by  medical== ACC==  and my x had  a part  to play in it

Finally   got  help  from  our  local MP  who  got us into a  housing  corp home  

 while  living  in Hastings  i   looked out  for  decent  doctors   specialist  ==  by this  time  didn't have much faith in  the medical profession

But   did  go  to see a  Mr  Tain   well  that  didn't  turn out   good  ==  want  to  a Mr  baker specialist   who carried out  a nerve conduction  test==  I  could have  kicked him  where it  hurts 

In all of  this   not matter  how  there  reports  gunned me  down   Guess  what   they  were  spelling out  arachnoiditis   This i  found  out many years later 

I  then  went  to  see  a Mr  Gale  Curtis    Hastings  specialist  now  he  was much better

I  was sent   for  another  mylogram  into Napier  hospital

 You have it   another  OP  was needed   with many  question marks  about my health

 in 1987  my  second OP  fusions  bone  taken  from hip ==  this made my neck stable   but   still had   major  health problems  that  where  getting  worse  by  the year 

Medication   way  heavy  and  knocking  me  round 

 

More  to come

re: Fireman John HUNTLEY of 40 Kowhai St., WAINUIOMATA.
I am sorry to let you know that this unfortunate Fireman has ot as yet been employed in light duties at the Wellington

a Taxi Driver .
I am sure that he will manage as a Taxi Driver, as he 1s,an extremely well motivated young man . I only think how sad it is that you have lost a good Fireman.   •
Yours sincerely,

In  reading through my  files I have found  that some lines  have been  blacked out  even  some  words == question  Why

Tonight  while  reading  one of my  files  There is  a miss leading  statement  or  straight out lies   == It states  that  in  1989  I fell out  of my milk  truck == Well I never  owned  a milk  truck  and  was not  working   with a  milk  truck

This  is history  repeating  it  self    back  again   it  was  stated  that i  was  working   a milk  run  

 

Some  files  can't be  read   let alone   scan  them

Some  files have  wrong   dates   not  sure  if  from medical  or ACC

 

 I  can assure  you all   that  more is  going  up  as  soon  as possible

I have  found  that  i am  a little  confused   regarding  dates ===  that  is    because of   the  time  span

Also in reading    my files  I see  that some  amounts paid  and  taxes  paid  maybe  slightly  wrong  This  if  because of ACC confusing  paper work  but over  all  this is my  story  with  a mount en  of  files  to be posted ==  this will  take  time

Can  you relate  to  this

In my  second  lot of ACC files  which  are in some  cases different

First up very important  medical  reports missing

 Then  whole  lines and  some  words  blacked out

Dates  wrong  statements  wrong  =etc [ owned a milk  truck]

In one  document  I was  a  Vietnam solder shot in  the neck

 Other  sufferers    information = Names = Date of  accidents = date of  birth   type of  accident =  specialist one page up on line  another  still  on my  files

When ACC   send  you  for  an assessment   ACC  send  what  will help   them  not  the  accident  victim =  so  they mislead   there  doctor    that is  assessing  you

 

In  one  case  resent  ACC lied  by  saying  that   they had  a document  from  my  lawyer  stating  damaging   things  about  me

This  was in a  fairway  hearing  They  will take  part of  a statement  and  twist it

I  do have much more  to post  when I have my  scanner   working

​I  forgot to mention   that I had  dealings  with A  Mr  Hornabrook  who  also   worked  for  the  fire service  There  doctor 

When living  in Wanganui   I  saw him again  I  do have names  for him as well

​He  promised  me  that he  would investigate  my  files  and  the myodil  He  also had  all of Russel  Worth   files 

2 weeks later  he  resigned   as  a  doctor  == never heard  from him again

This is  a wage  slip  from  the  fire  service  NOTE  fire service  controlled   fireman's  ERC until  you  retired  then  it was handed over  to ACCAttached File  re taxis.jpg   172.45KB   0 downloads

 

this in  relation  to Taxi's  and  fire  service   pay

 

Question   Why  did  i have  the  reduction  in  fire service  pay  when i  was   working  taxi's   before  my  accident 

Owned   cab  52  53  59   then  in 1978  before i  left   or  medically  retired  owned  another 2    total 5  taxi's 

this  did  take  a long  time  to process 

 

It  takes  months  it  get approval  before  you   are  granted  a  cab  and licence 

 

Now  to explain further  when  My \ x  left her  Get  applied  to the  court  and   took  one of  the  taxis  leaving me  with all  the large  bills
