Hmm ... reading though this thread raises some interesting points...

ACC are attempting to get someone who is already under duress (pressure/outside influence namely ACC) to sign something, that they may not totally comprehend, either due to lack of formal education in law/medicine or through the effects of their injuries.

Now, if it were possible to get legal support either through community law or otherwise, perhaps a PROPER statutory declaration made with the assistance of a paralegal, and containing ONLY the correct information from the ACC Claimant (and not the ACC corp spin versions) - and have that document signed before a JP or other suitable witness, and provide that to ACC. It might also be worthwhile to have that document read by your GP and/or specialist before it is signed off to ensure accuracy and full validity of information contained. It would even be worth spending a few hard won $$$ to get this done ...

At least that document has been checked, done properly, and done without coercion by ACC case (mis)managers ...

Now, if ACC refuse that, you've got something to take to review ...

Just a thought from the wop wops...

ACC are not attempting or asking to sign the document. They demand you sign the document, as a statutory declaration, on the stated threat that entitlement will be suspended using S117 for failing to sign as they demand.
This is the part that is illegal!
Secondly, the only matter that can be taken to review is the act suspention of entitlement under S117 - and and on anything else the Reviewer cannot rule on. So the facts become irrellivant.
Been there - done that - and now am a little bit wiser.
