A bystander who was shot by the police is to appeal against a court decision throwing out his claim for compensation.
In 2009, Richard Neville was driving his truck along Auckland's north-western motorway when he was hit by shots fired by police officers chasing the fugitive gunman Stephen McDonald.
This month, the High Court rejected his attempt to sue the police under the Bill of Rights.
Mr Neville's lawyer Charl Hirschfeld said the decision to appeal was about more than just compensation.
He said Mr Neville wanted a chance to present his side of the story, which the police have denied and labelled as fanciful.
Mr Hirschfeld said he would file papers to the Court of Appeal next week.
Mr Neville has said he still has shrapnel, including lead, glass, tungston and copper inside his body from the incident.
