ACC REVIEWS

An ACC review occurs after an application has been lodged with ACC. Usually FairWay or ICRA handles ACC's reviews and they have locations around New Zealand where the parties meet to discuss the case. Prior to the review, submissions are lodged with a review company. The Applicant's (you) and Respondent's (ACC) submissions contain the facts, medical opinion, case law, legislation and the expected outcome of the case.


ACC Legal can handle all of your review and district court appeal requirements such as the required applications, submissions and teleconferences.


The Cost of going to review is based on the complexity of your case. A simple review is usually at no direct cost to you. ACC is required to cover the applicants legal fees up to a prescribed amount. A reviewer will not grant an applicant legal fees if the case has no merit.
