ACC tells minister justice issues have been fixed, but advocates not so confident

Cate Broughton17:02, Feb 26 2019



ACC says it has fixed problems for people who want to challenge its decisions, but advocates say the process is still stacked against claimants.  

A briefing to ACC Minister Iain Lees-Galloway said ACC had concluded 19 of the 20 recommendations made in a 2016 review by Miriam Dean QC. 

The review found it was difficult and expensive for claimants to get representation and medical expert opinion, which was critical to dispute a decision.
