1 pointFor many of the people on your list, their fight with ACC is over. NTV for example I know has simply had enough , and is now enjoying life without the struggle, so I do not think she will be joining us. It is a shame because some of them have fought long and hard, and have beaten the corporation in the courts, and possess a huge store of knowledge. What we have to do is build this site up and the people will come.
1 pointHi all, first post... hope this is the right place. I was on weekly compensation after an accident in early 2017, while employed. Three operations later, after redundancy, unemployment and (between second and third operations) briefly working to establish a company I set up, ACC reassessed my weekly compensation using my 12 months' income before the date of my third surgery. Surprise, in those twelve months I earned a lot less than in the twelve months before my accident. ACC assessed my weekly compensation as less than immediately post accident. Can they do this? I thought that until the original injury was completely healed, I am supposed to get compensation at the rate that reflects my earnings at the time of the accident. My case manager doesn't see a problem. I'm hoping your combined experience and wisdom will let me know how to proceed. Thanks
1 pointWell I certainly hope this site can be all that we need it to be. We just need to get all of those members that have the experience and wisdom to participate. I see this site as the only viable option. I will be steering people here, and hope we can provide a safe place for those seeking help with ACC matters.
