    How long has Scott Pickering been at ACC now? Not sure but may have been last year or the year before that Scott Pickering's yearly wage is $850.000.00 Not bad money for screwing claimants is it?

    That database error page is still showing up on that other forum. I certainly haven't shed any tears over the demise of that very unsafe and extremely dangerous and now hopefully defunct forever forum and I'm not about to start! One person in my opinion destroyed that place. I really hope everyone will just try and put that forum and it's criminal element owner or owners behind them and start getting in to get our new forum where that other place used to be in its hay day, and that's being a massive thick rose thorn up ACC's backside at all time's! It's time to start.

    People are just in too much of a hurry these days! They don't keep to the left of their lane They don't STOP at STOP signs They STOP at round abouts when no other traffic around! They STOP to let pedestrians cross on pedestrian crossings when pedestrians on ther side of road and haven't even yet set foot on the crossing .... on the other side of the road The rule book states traffic don't need to stop until pedestrian or pedestrians are on your side of the road/crossing There needs to be an OPEN ROAD DRIVING endorsement on licenses for townies!

    For 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.

    Hi 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

    Good to see everyone. As I have alluded to earlier there are some big issues which I will be personally tackling, hopefully with all your support. With your support I will be able to bring down the Executive who have failed us for the last time. I seriously believe this and I as always will stake my own credibility on the line but to achieve this goal, unity and a bit of effort from all of us will be required. If you all follow my lead and amplify my legal and political attacks, we will finally show the Corporation that we will take no more of their failures. That is my commitment to the claimant community of New Zealand. I am in discussions with other groups. I want hundreds if not thousands and anyone who wants to fight and actually win, the fight is right here and right now. I will make an official post with more detail very soon.

    Well 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.

    I reproduced the above Stuff story for a good reason. About 8 years ago a select group of ACCforum.org members were attacked on that forum by a then newly registered member. That individual is allegedly the same person featured in the following story published by the Herald.

    Found this excellent opinion on another site that I need to share with everyone The writer is Chris https://www.neighbourly.co.nz/message/view/55722440 I hope the writer will consider joining this forum and sharing his views and opinions about, not only Lime Scooters but ACC as well. ACC operates on a No Fault system. To cut to the chase, it's the NZ ACC Levy Payers that foot the injury bills including E.R.C (earning related compensation) My opinion is that if a product and or service used in NZ is proved/known to cause any level of injury, the importer/manufacturer/service provider should be required to pay a huge percentage of the cost of the ACC claim and charge their clients/customers extra money which goes direct to the ACC Levy Payers fund/account to off-set costs associated with the injury causing whatever. An example - NZ tobacco/cigarette smokers pay an extra tax on any tobacco product which I believed was to help the District Health Boards look after smokers when/if their health deteriorates The same system could also work on Lime scooters. The more people use them, the more money goes into the ACC levy payers account/fund. Why did Lime not cease hiring out these scooters everywhere as soon as they became aware of the issue? One, maybe Two "Brakes Locking" issues should have been enough for LIME to hit the pause button until the serious issue was fixed and tested! Since Lime Scooters suddenly appeared in NZ I have been waiting for that breaded News Flash that a person has been killed while using a Lime Scooter! I hope I never see the day. Just a note, Its no use asking some users/riders of the Lime Scooters to slow down and ride responsibly some wouldn't give two hoots on how many old folk and kids they hit - some more than others think they're indispensable when riding a lime. Until its too late. sadly next is rip I'll try and make contact with someone at Lime and invite them to join and participate in these discussions.

    Women stand naked on Auckland's Karangahape Road in protest of police inaction after alleged assault Hannah Martin and Charlotte Carter13:13, Feb 09 2019 https://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/110471269/women-stand-naked-on-aucklands-karangahape-road-in-protest-of-police-inaction-after-alleged-assault Jazmine Rose Phillips and Kyah Dove stood naked on a busy Auckland road as a protest after an alleged assault. The victim of an alleged sexually-motivated assault stood naked on Friday on Auckland's Karangahape Rd in protest, after she says police ignored her calls for help. Auckland performance artist Jazmine Rose Phillips stood hand-in-hand with her friend, Kyah Dove at the entrance to St Kevins' Arcade, covered in fake blood and with black tape over their mouths. Other women were handing out flyers to passersby, detailing the reasons for the protest. The flyer stated the women were physically assaulted by a man on Karangahape Rd on January 21. Phillips said a man began "doing sexual gestures" towards her and her partner after they had hugged on a street corner. She hit his car window, then he jumped out of his vehicle and struck her across the head, before trying to hit her partner, she said. This flier was handed to passersby by people at the scene. The pair got away and asked a passerby to stand with them while they phoned 111. They then gave police a description of the man who attacked them, along with his car registration number, Phillips said. On the phone, they were told there would be CCTV footage, and police would contact them that evening or follow up the next day. But they never heard from police, Phillips said. "The officer at the counter made [my partner] tell the story in a line in front of people, then after she told the story he said 'we can't do anything unless you both come in'," Phillips said. Phillips' partner left the police station in tears. "I walked away from that experience feeling really hurt, powerless and unsupported with a lot of shame and fear," Phillips said. She decided to protest on K Rd to process her trauma through art. "I kept hearing stories from all my female friends about their similar stories of sexual harassment and reporting rape, far more traumatic stories than mine and decided this is what I would do." She said the protest prompted an outpouring of gratitude from women who confessed they went through similar experiences and it was "amazing to not feel alone", but also awful to know that so many people shared her grief. A police sergeant approached the two women after they had been standing on the street for quite some time and gave Phillips his card, she said. "He said, 'when you're ready to talk I would like to further explore the case', but for me that was far too late, I wanted them to arrive when I made a 111 call. "Last week a 57-year-old women died in her home and Grace [Millane] was found in a bush near my house. What I would like to know is at what point do [police] start arriving after calls?" A bystander who was meeting friends for lunch came across the protest, which she said made her "pretty emotional". Lots of people stopped to look at the "amazingly brave" women and to take flyers, she said. "The women being there on a busy street, naked, covered in fake blood with the tape over their mouths was a pretty powerful statement," she said. "I almost cried." Auckland District Commander Superintendent Karyn Malthus said the matter was "being followed up urgently". Police were contacting the two women to discuss their concerns with them, she said. "We understand they have concerns about an incident where one of the women was assaulted in January, and the way it was handled. "We need to establish the exact circumstances around the incident and what happened when they reported it. "It is very concerning that these women feel let down by police and we are doing everything we can to establish exactly what happened, work with the victims and address their concerns."
