Merit Reviewer’s Determination

This determination relates to a merit review matter, which is a reviewable decision under Schedule 2(1)(k) of the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 (“the Act”), about verification of expenses. This determination is in relation to the claimant’s costs in that matter.

My determination of the Merit Review is as follows:

  • Legal Costs: In accordance with section 8.10(3) of the Act, the Authority directs the Insurer to pay the claimants legal costs as detailed by the solicitor for up to 4.5 hours of legal services in relation to the application for merit review only.
  • In accordance with regulation 23 of the Motor Accident Injuries Regulation 2017 (NSW) (“the Regulation”), no costs are payable in respect of any legal services provided in the preparation of an application for internal review.

A brief statement of my reasons for this determination are attached to this certificate.
