    acc supplying a vehicle

    Did you have your assessment done using the Holden Colorado? Regardless of the vehicle type is the height an important factor because of the ease of getting in and out of it?

    AON NZ Ltd

    They did the same thing to hundreds of Long Term Claimants. They contact the specialist/s and under the pretense of seeking advice they, Leanne and Rob, give advice on what should be recorded in the claimants medical report to ensure a speedy exit onto a waiting winz benefit!

    Are there any ACC claimants out there who were exited by either Catalyst or AON between 1999 and 2004ish but have since had their rightful ERC etc reinstated and been paid loads and loads of money by either AON and/or Catalyst and/or ACC to keep quite and not tell anyone/media?

    AON NZ Ltd

    From the wayback machine as like the quote in the previous post. I never did like AON Aon NZ Ltd (WorkAon) was a very successful 3rd party case management service provider contractor to the ACC between 1998 and 2003-4 By early 2003 AON NZ Ltd (WorkAon) had successfully exited their long term claimants (Tail enders) injury file quota and wanted ACC to transfer more files to case manage. ACC declined to give them more long term claim injury files. I'm guessing too many questions were starting to be asked and complaints made about their case management style/practices! Does anyone want to know how they were so successful?

    "Quotes from Aon Discussion Paper on Private Sector Competition for Accident Compensation Insurance August 2004" "Aon was very successful in exiting claims In the 12 months to 30 June 2003, ACC only managed to exit 256 long-term tail claims, despite a target of 1,500 planned exits"

    Why we are here

    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.

    The Steps To Take when injury occurs

    In reference to number 4.1 - Be honest with the NZ ACC. On the now defunct other accforum I was following the adventures of member "Alan Tomas" Only days after "Brucy" (I think that's the correct spelling) posted a link to this person Alen Tomases court stuff the whole forum disappeared! database error? I hope that Bruce guy joins here and re-posts that link in the judgement section of this forum. What clearly stands out in this Judgement, from what I did manage to read of it before getting bored, just like the Judge and everyone else in that Court Room must have been except Mr Tomas, is that he, Mr Tomas totally failed to inform the ACC of his Directorships in numerous registered limited companies! Being honest with the ACC is paramount! It also puts you in a much better position than the ACC when they attempt to screw you with altered file documents and the like which leads to your compensation being suspended and you having to take (fight) the basterds at Review then most likely just before it gets heard in the District Court of ACC Appeals they the ACC will back off and reinstate your erc because once its in ACC Appeals its in Public Domain land and everyone will know what they the ACC did to screw the life out of you and exhaust your funds for the time they were staring you out!
  12. 1 - Ensure your incident/accident/injury is correctly recorded by your employer 1.1 - Get a photocopy for your records 2 - Ensure your incident/accident/injury is correctly recorded by your or your employers GP 2.1 - Get a copy for your records 3 - Ensure your GP or Employers GP fills out all the required documentation for lodging a claim with ACC and sends to them 3.1 - Ask for a copy/print out of everything forwarded to the ACC 3.2 - The Medical History File your GP has about you belongs to you, NOT the doctor/GP! He/She is only the caretaker/administrator/case manager of your Medical History File/Records! 3.3 - Request a full and unedited copy of your Medical History File every six months or so. Make sure you request this at the very first consultation with your doctor/gp and ensure all your records are as they should be. This prevents any changes being made to your file history without your knowledge 4 - When communicating with the NZ ACC only do so in writting - emails NEVER Talk To Anyone from the ACC over the phone/cellphone 4.1 - Be honest with the NZ ACC. The Steps To Take when injury occurs I'm very much open to discussion on this topic so be my guest and lets debate the right and wrong procedures/steps to take in the lodging of an injury claim with the ACC.

    I also think that an OPEN ROAD DRIVING endorsement on licenses for anyone driving out of town/city limits is a brilliant idea!

    Lime Scooters

    NZ PM Jacinda Ardern says Lime scooter company should pay 'fair share' of tax https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/110859511/jacinda-ardern-says-lime-scooter-company-should-pay-fair-share-of-tax Lime told Stuff on Saturday the bug had already been fixed thanks to a firmware update. "That update has eliminated [the glitch] and will reduce the number of incidents," Mitchell Price, Lime's director of government affairs and strategy, said. Dear Mr Price It is quite obvious why the Auckland Council are reluctant to reinstate Lime's operating license "That update has eliminated [the glitch] and will reduce the number of incidents," I understand Lime was supposed to "Fix" the issue/problem, not merely reduce the number of incidents/injuries! May I suggest first fix the issue and then trial run in the USA where riders are able to sue if injured. Is NZ being used as a testing ground where Lime can't be sued for injuries caused to users/riders of Lime Scooters? Have a great day.
