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, about the amount of statutory benefits payable under Division 3.3.
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 statutory benefits that is payable to the Claimant under Division 3.3 must conform to the requirements of Section 3.7(2) of the Act.
o 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 December 2018 to 18 March 2019.
A brief statement of my reasons for this determination are attached to this certificate.
Merit Reviewer, Dispute Resolution Service
