Merit reviewer's determination
The reviewable decisions are the decisions of the insurer about the amount of ADO's pre-accident weekly earnings and the date from which ADO's weekly payment of statutory benefits are payable. These are decisions that affect the amount of weekly payments of statutory benefits and are merit reviewable matters under Schedule 2(1)(a) of the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017.
My determination of the merit review matters are as follows:
1. The insurer's decision in respect of the amount of ADO's pre-accident weekly earnings (PAWE) is set aside and the following decision is made in substitution for that decision. The amount of ADO's PAWE is $705.02.
- This determination has effect from 19 September 2018.
2. The reviewable decision that there is no entitlement to a payment of weekly statutory benefit on the day of the motor accident is affirmed.
A brief statement of my reasons for this determination are attached to this certificate.
