Merit Reviewer’s Determination

This determination relates to a merit review matter about weekly payments of statutory benefits to injured persons. This is a reviewable decision under Schedule 2(1)(a) of the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017.

My determination of the Merit Review is as follows:

1. The reviewable decision is set aside and the following decision is made in substitution for the reviewable decision:

o AAO is entitled to weekly payments of statutory benefits.

2. Effective Date: The reviewable decision referred for merit review by AAO is about her entitlement to weekly payments of statutory benefits payable by the insurer to AAO from the date of accident. It is the function of the Dispute Resolution Service on merit review to arrive at the correct and preferable outcome in respect of the weeks covered by the reviewable decision that is referred for review. Accordingly, this determination has effect from 28 March 2018. The insurer is to determine AAO’s entitlement to weekly payments of statutory benefits in accordance with the decision above.

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