If your files were in Wanganui last week then they were not private or confidential, watch this space.

Rivercity, my suggestion is to complain the Privacy Commissioner (and Health and Disability Commissioner) regarding both privacy breaches and possibly how ACC treats claimants health information and trust!!!.
Claimants are forced to attend appointments arranged by ACC, undergo assessments, disclose certain information etc. But that information should remain private to ACC (and then only some ACC personnel).

If your complaint was upheld then you can get compensation - either direct from ACC or after taking your complaint(s) to the complaints procedure beyond the Privacy Commissioner. (Sorry! I cannot remember name - it might be Human Rights Review Tribunal).

Money in your pocket is better than in ACC's. Unfortunately, your privacy has already been compromised. Seek compensation.

Lynne Lulham <[email protected]> of ACC complaints tells claimants the ACC do not lose files!

Check out the abridged email from my aunty's friend; someone she calls an amazingly strong, heroic, staunch mother of a seriously disabled vaccine injured boy:

Quote

Was SO good for the over-all health & well-being to bypass ACC altogether. The stress of dealing with the ACC AND taking care of a seriously disabled boy, didn't do the health any good what-so-ever! That's why she never continued pursuing it for her crippled son. As soon as the ACC "lost" files, the mother knew she wasn't up to the unequal fight, while at the same time trying 2 help the severely damaged boy relearn how to walk/talk (etc) It was for the mother a sense of tremendous relief & freedom to let it (ACC claims) go. If she had been without loving support of a hubby/family to fall back on & with her back to the wall, on her own, then yes, maybe things might have been different.
