You’ve got more chance of a successful ACC review to overturn a declined claim if you seek the help of an experienced ACC lawyer.
In New Zealand, the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) scheme provides compensation if you’ve had an accident and suffered certain personal or mental injuries, work related injuries or treatment injuries. But the ACC claims process can be difficult to navigate and many people miss out on the cover available and potentially significant entitlements.
ACC Reviews and Appeals
If you’ve had an ACC claim declined, our lawyers can help you challenge that decision by applying for a review. If you have had an unsuccessful ACC review hearing, our lawyers can assist you to appeal the review.
Qualifying for cover and entitlements from ACC is informed by medical expertise, but it is ultimately a legal determination. While the ACC review process is set up not to require a lawyer, our experience shows that those who go through the process with a legal advisor enjoy higher rates of success.
Our ACC lawyers have an in-depth understanding of the ACC claims and review process, and they can advise you on the best course of action for a successful outcome. We’ve had high rates of success in overturning declined ACC claims and decisions to suspend cover.
Seeking help with ACC can ease the pain of what is already often a stressful situation. However there are relatively strict timelines on challenging ACC’s decisions, so it pays to act quickly. Get the advice of an experienced ACC lawyer today.
Please note, legal aid is generally not available for ACC reviews.
