Reproduced from the previous ACCforum NZ Posted by Popeye , Oct 05 2017 01:23 PM Originally from: https://www.stuff.co.nz Bogus-named case managers demeaning, ACC claimants say CATE BROUGHTON Last updated 10:51, October 5 2017 https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/97150377/bogus-case-managers-demeaning-acc-claimants-say Blenheim man Peter Firmin is one of at least 212 ACC claimants assigned a case manager with a bogus name. The ex-soldier was badly injured during a military training exercise in a Malaysian jungle in 1986 at the age of 23. A delay in hospital treatment resulted in permanent damage to his spine. SCOTT HAMMOND/STUFF Blenheim man Peter Firmin says he poses no risk to ACC staff.

Recovered from previous ACCforum NZ ACC causing 'unacceptable harm' to many rejected, legitimate claimants each year, research finds Started by Wing nut , Oct 05 2017 02:56 PM ACC causing 'unacceptable harm' to many rejected, legitimate claimants each year, research finds CECILE MEIER Last updated 11:51, May 23 2017 Hundreds of thousands of injured Kiwis are declined cover each year by ACC, causing "unacceptable harm" to many legitimate claimants, according to new research. Injured people who have been denied cover "find themselves pitted against a huge, billion-dollar specialist Crown agency", the Law Foundation and University of Otago-backed report said. The report, published on Tuesday, calls for the establishment of a personal injury commissioner to help people navigate the Accident Compensation Corporation's (ACC) "incredibly complex and difficult" complaints process. read the full story at Stuff http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/92845937/acc-causing-unacceptable-harm-to-many-rejected-legitimate-claimants-each-year-research-finds
