A New Zealand Navy veteran has received compensation after successfully linking his recently diagnosed Parkinson's disease to his workplace exposure to the chemical trichloroethylene (TCE) in the 1960s.

The NZ Herald reports that ACC has received claims for neurotoxicity in relation to spraypainting, but has not yet received a specific claim for TCE exposure in the workplace causing Parkinson's.
