Merit Reviewer’s Determination

The reviewable decision is the decision of the Insurer about ACJ’s post-accident earning capacity.

This is a decision that affects the amount of weekly payments of statutory benefits and is therefore a merit review matter under Schedule 2(1)(a) of the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017.

  • The reviewable decision is set aside and the following decision is made in substitution:
o   ACJ has no post-earning capacity from 7 April 2018 to 30 August 2018.

o   ACJ has no post-earning capacity from 30 August 2018.

o   The Insurer is to calculate ACJ’s weekly payments under Division 3.3 of the Act in accordance with this determination.

o   The Insurer is to pay ACJ the difference of payments already made and any amounts owed to him in accordance with this determination.
