Merit Review's Determination

The reviewable decision is about 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 determination of the Merit Review is as follows:

  • The reviewable decision is set aside and remitted to the Insurer for reconsideration with the following direction:
o The Insurer is to determine the amount of statutory benefits that are payable under Division 3.3 (Weekly payments of statutory benefits to injured persons) to ACT, on the basis that the amount of ACT’s pre-accident average weekly earnings (PAWE) is $504.93.
  • Effective Date: This determination has effect from the date of the reviewable decision, being 5 October 2018, until 13 November 2018. A brief statement of my reasons for this determination are attached to this certificate.
