Blenheim man Peter Firmin is one of at least 212 ACC claimants assigned a case manager with a bogus name.

The ex-soldier was badly injured during a military training exercise in a Malaysian jungle in 1986 at the age of 23.

A delay in hospital treatment resulted in permanent damage to his spine.

He started receiving ACC compensation payments in 1988 but maintained the amount was incorrect for 15 years before a judge found in his favour in 2014.
