This case involves a claimant who decided to try and get at ACC without regard to proper process. The result of his actions earned him a severe rebuke from the Judge. The Judge even exposed wider issues that would allow ACC to really put the hurt on this claimant. The claimant only succeeded in empowering ACC significantly. Here is what not to do.

Rain, rain go away ...; [2 Edition]

BRISTOW, Robyn, CHRISTIAN, Peter. The Press. Christchurch, New Zealand: Jan 11, 2002. pg. 1
Abstract (Summary)
At the Woodend Motor Camp Colin Crequer, of Christchurch, said having a converted bus as camp headquarters had saved the day for the Crequer and Forman families. The children had slept in tents but used the bus to play in during the day.

Christchurch has also suffered with plenty of rain over the last few days. The bad news is that the rain will be around until Monday.

Hundreds of campers and trampers fled torrential rain in South Island holiday spots yesterday ... but some put on a brave face and stuck it out.

In Nelson's Abel Tasman National Park, an unseasonable deluge on Wednesday and yesterday -- more than 200mm rain fell in 14 hours -- sent holidaymakers scurrying.

At Totaranui's camping ground, home to nearly 1000 campers, about 80 people were forced to move when the ground was flooded.

Water and mud flowed through tents and the camp's workshop, washed away the camp's bridge abutments, and closed a toilet block.

On Wednesday night, some people found themselves trapped by slips on the Totaranui to Takaka road until they were freed when contractors cleared the way at 10pm.

Throughout Wednesday kayakers, day- trippers, and others using the park were uplifted by water taxi from the Coastal Track and the coastline and returned to Marahau.

One taxi company said their six boats, together capable of carrying up to 300 people, made three trips to the area to pick up those escaping the heavy rain.

Last night some parts of an already sodden Nelson City experienced more rain when an electrical storm let loose shortly after 5pm.

At Leithfield Beach the Palalagi and Teague families of Christchurch were determined to ignore the elements and enjoy a few days holiday.

Their only concession to the weather was to dispense with tenting and hire a bach.

Yesterday they spilled out onto the beach, despite the constant rain. They were in the minority. As far as the eye could see, there was not another soul in sight.

At the Woodend Motor Camp Colin Crequer, of Christchurch, said having a converted bus as camp headquarters had saved the day for the Crequer and Forman families. The children had slept in tents but used the bus to play in during the day.

They travelled into Christchurch to movies and darted to the beach during fine periods. "Most days there has been a dry spell," he said.

Christchurch has also suffered with plenty of rain over the last few days. The bad news is that the rain will be around until Monday.

D Crequer's children will be teenagers by now.

Anyone who has lost a partner/ spouse and parent in the manner this family have, through a drowning accident deserve compassion and not to be put through continuous retraumatising.

As someone whom has been in similiar circumstances and losing a family member through a tragic accident there is nothing worse than been retraumatised.

Maybe http://www.acc.co.nz should proactively look into current best practice in it's own backyard and minimise the harm done.

How many times for instance have http://www.acc.co.nz asked D Crequer for the same information that is already on file?

Knowing what some are like whom work for http://www.acc.co.nz they are asking for information that is already on file or simply doesn't exist.

Anyone would get annoyed with being asked repeatedly for the same information that is on file.

D Crequer, if he is the same person we believe he is, has by all accounts done well to bring up his children singlehandly.

Perhaps His Honour and http://www.acc.co.nz should do a Google search of their names and praise him.

Ashley, Margot and Harry could easily have gone off the rails without their mum.

It takes two to tango and both parties have obligations to ensure a healthy and conducive working relationship.

None of us know what pushed Mr D Crequer to address matters the way he has.

May we ask http://www.acc.co.nz and others reading this to walk in this man and his families shoes to understand what it must be like to go from being an independent man and breadwinner of the family to taking on the role of father and mum and ending up being a house-bound father on what appears to be the DPB.
