Yes, indeed, Tomcat. Kantilal Kanji has stuffed around heaps of Auckland claimants, both on independence allowance & lump-sum assesments, and on cover and entitlement suspension as Takapuna branch BMA.

Almost as bad as Brian Otto and Jeremy Hopkins, ACCs pet orthopaedic assessors in Auckland, both of whom seem to think that soft tissue spinal injuries are always fully resolved within 3 months. My own lumbar disc prolapse history can put the lie to that theory.

If you want a fair assessment of a spinal injury in Auckland, I would suggest Peter Robertson, who has a reputation as one of the best spinal surgeons in the country. Unfortunately, Gordon Howie, who is equally competent, is so pissed off with ACC that he refuses to do medico-legal reports any more.

The problem is that you have to usually wait 4-6 months to get an appointment with Robertson, but it is worth the wait to avoid being dicked around by the likes of some of the others.

Hi Tomcat,

Would this Takapuna Kanji be related to Garish Kanji from Wellington region ( though I'm led to believe he travels the country hawking his wares)

He definitly needs to be watched as he has a habit of cutting claimants of at the knees

He does Vocational Indepence Medical Assessments, the ones that lead to being Work Capped.

Not sure if any relation.

I do not think that Kantilal Kanji is qualified to do VIMAs to exit claimants, although I know he does IMAs to get them started on the process, as well as his other good deeds for the Corporation.

But it is probably a good bet that he is trying to get the qualifications to do VIMAs as well, so he can exit claimants just as his namesake Garish does.

Greetings,
Neddy... no not him... but maybe a reli... was at Northcote sports Med...
now a full fledged ACC TOAD.

Ernie... post was prompted by several previous accounts and personal experience,
as support person... but to day had another story told... He needs some heavy exposure.... It does show clearly ACC's preference for "money hungry imports".

Greetings,
To get get "Honest Reports" we must pay out of our own pockets...
which varies, depending on who... BUT...nowhere as much as the $7500 and $4500
that we know of, paid by ACC to effect 2 exits....
Unfortunately... even tho one may obtain an HONEST FACTUAL report...
there is more than likely a 90% chance of an unqualified ACC Toad, rubbishing it...

You are not the only one, maungataniwha. A claimant I am working with tells me that Kanji's examination aggravated his injury too.

Well - it would appear this mongrel also goes down to Invercargill to do ACC's dirty work on patients who are currently receiving treatment, and just had surgery, and whats more - awaiting further surgery.
Send the Ba...rd off shore where he belongs. How does he live with himself.
Thats right - we (as claimants) all know the answer to that - MONEY $$$$$$$$

Is he a registered IMA Dr ???? or just sneaked in through the back door? :ph34r:

usuall that mongrel is not qualified to do that type of assessment and that is no worry to ACC.

Lies and untruth is what ACC goes on.

It would be good if the claimants of Invercargill ACC Branch
understood that they CANNOT BE FORCED to see this Kanji person. They must, like every other claimant in NZ be given a list of assessors and be able to choose whom they want to assess for IMA. This is in the Act and this is law "as given by Parliament" and must be enforced.
So all folk of Invercargill, please refuse to see this man unless you want to be shafted and injured further. Let then fly hiom down and see noone. ?He will soon get sick of that??
STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AND DO NOT BE TOLD LIES BY YOUR CASE MANAGER. yOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO AND SEE THIS MAN EVEN IF IT IS 24HRS NOTICE AND ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

Assessor reports are private information of which you have control by way of the Privacy Act. The best time to control the decision-making is at the beginning. Use the Privacy Act to prevent the existence of wrong information being published to the ACC.

Remember that it is essential to get a copy of the draft report before it is released to the ACC. This will give you a chance to have another expert, (make sure your expert is better than their expert), determine whether or not the draft report has been produced properly, accounting for all information and is reasoning and reporting properly. Frequently the ACC only provide the assessor with information that will produce a report in their favour with the excuse that you can provide the other side of the story yourself. You need to ensure that the assessor as had all of the available information and has demonstrated that fact within the report. A proper report will have a list of the information considered. For example if a doctor is assessing you for a particular occupation then this task activities need to be described to the doctor. This is far more extensive than just saying moderate bending, occasional reaching, light duties. That type of wording has been provided by the ACC to occupation descriptions for the express purpose of downplaying the vocational assessors report. Reports that only generalise are not acceptable under any circumstances. If the report is wrong or unsatisfactory in any way, in fact or reasoning, notify the assessor of the errors. The assessor must be required to provide a comprehensive report.

A report produced that not known to be correct by the assessor and if the report writer has no substantial information to justify the report then the producer of the report, a false document, has committed a crime resembling theft in that the report writer is a party to fraud by producing the false document intended for a fraudulent activity. If the report does not have substantial backing by way of fact then it will fall over at this point.

To achieve this process you simply write a letter to the assessor instructing them that they do not have consent to release any information about you until you give them written consent to do so. In order to gain your consent tell them that they must first give a draft copy of the report so as you can check whether or not the information is factually correct. Once you are happy with the report you write them a letter giving them consent to release their report to the ACC.

The fact that the ACC has commissioned the report and is paying for the report is absolutely irrelevant. The ACC may threaten to suspend your ERC if this process takes too long. He ACC and the assessor may not breach your rights to privacy. It is your information and you have a right to control that information.

If you suspect that the ACC are attempting to obtain a document to exit you from your entitlements while you have not yet rehabilitated then you have good reason to believe that the ACC are attempting to commit something resembling theft, fraud. The best time to protect yourself from theft it is in the beginning when the thief is manipulating facts so as to misrepresent the ownership of your entitlements.

If you have sufficient money have an independent assessment done prior to the ACC assessment and hand that assessment to the ACC assessor before they begin.

Any questions about these procedures can be addressed directly to my e-mail.

Help!
I am supposed to see Kantilal Kanji in a few weeks for a VIA. There is no way I can work more hours than I am now, but as I have chronic pain there is no visible injury. I wasn't ofered an alternative - I think I was supposed to be, so I will tell my case manager that I want to chose my own Dr. Can anyone suggest other names for the Whangerei area?
And what do I do then?

Jeez that creep turns up all over the place.
Ask your case manager immediately, in writing preferably, ie. email,fax ,letter etc so there is a record, for a list of assessors in the area to chose from as they are reguired to under the act.
I would also suggest you get in touch with the Whangarei support group who should be able to help you through the process.

If he is such a good Dr why does he travel all over the country for ACC. Most of the assessors who travel all over NZ have a bad name.

Same goes for those who are less than reliable ... they get the odd one right .

Its not the mistakes them selves that are the problem , everyone makes them..
Its the culture within ACC ( and other organisations) that encourages coverups ,rather than rectification .

By the time a situation has gone beyond branch level too many people have participated in the flawed activity so when it hits a review the levels of misinformation generated by all those party to the complication sway the reviewer .

CM,TL,BM,AM,GM,CEO,MD's and a host of other service providers .

Ron Patterson The Health And Dissabilities Commissioner and others who should be our advocate lack the skills required and in reality are only high paid professional pacifiers

I did send Ron patterson a babies dummy once and asked if they were related . to date he has not advised me one way or the other...so i don't know yet.

Then once you have been through all these folks we end up in desperation falling into the clutches of bent lawyers or advocates .

We were screwed .

BUT thanks to the those who started this forum , and the create collective brain power with both moral and legal input from those who participate we are now no longer along .
Its value in educating the positive players within ACC , and there are far more positive than negatives , into the flaws and the suffering as a consequence will encourage them to be more proactive .

We now have reprresentives the ACC listen to and invite to meetings , this has got to be good..

Now its time to put the pressure on.
