Merit Reviewer’s Determination

This determination relates to a merit review matter, which is a reviewable decision under Schedule 2(1) (a) of the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 (the Act).

The merit review is about the amount of weekly payments of statutory benefits that is payable to the claimant under Division 3.3 of the Act.

My determination of the Merit Review is as follows:

  • The reviewable decision is set aside and the following decision is made in substitution for the reviewable decision:
o   The amount of the claimant’s pre-accident weekly earnings (PAWE) is $893.42
  • Effective Date: This determination takes effect on 8 August 2018. The Insurer is to pay the claimant the difference between what they have been paid and was entitled to be paid in accordance with the decision above.

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