Getting out of her car at a post office near Hervey Bay, Lyn slipped and seriously dislocated her knee.
The dislocation cut off circulation, meaning without urgent surgery Lyn would risk losing her lower leg. Fortunately, a LifeFlight crew flew Lyn to Brisbane, where a vascular surgeon saved her leg.
Even so, Lyn needed extensive rehabilitation to recover and ongoing specialised assistance and equipment to live comfortably. Her compensation claim with Shine meant Lyn knew her medical expenses would be looked after.
