ACC Revamp Tabled

A revamp of Accident Compensation Corporation legislation has been tabled in Parliament.

ACC Minister Ruth Dyson says the new Injury Prevention, Rehabilitation and Compensation Amendment Bill will make ACC fairer and simpler.

She says the amendments should also make ACC more responsive to the needs of claimants. An example is the removal of the need to find fault if a person is injured during medical treatment, which will speed up the claims process.

Ms Dyson says the current provisions are confusing and out-of-step with ACC's no-fault principle.

They must be getting pissed off with all the appeals they are losing.

One thing is certain the claiment will not be further advantaged.

One wonders what chicanery will be hidden in this new anmmendment to further disentitle the injured.

''ACC Minister Ruth Dyson says the new Injury Prevention, Rehabilitation and Compensation Amendment Bill will make ACC fairer and simpler.''

How often have we heard that phrase used by this lying piece of excrement and found ourselves worse off.

I think this is different from the changes that are to be notified about ACC legislation. That is supposed to be later on the year. Will check and get back to you.
