How the ACC process works
ACC provides accident cover for all New Zealand citizens, residents, and temporary visitors to New Zealand. In return people cannot sue for personal injury, other than for exemplary damages.
If you are injured and a request is made for ACC to cover the costs of your treatment, you will be allocated a case file. If during the course of your case you feel ACC has made a decision that you don't agree with, you can apply for a review with ACC, which will then be forwarded to DRSL.
You must apply to ACC for a review within three months of the date of its decision. In special circumstances, ACC can extend this time, but you should not rely on this.
Mediation may also be an option for resolving your case. Please contact us for more information.
