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”) about the amount of statutory benefits that is payable under Division 3.3 (Weekly benefits of statutory benefits to injured persons).
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 claimant’s pre-accident weekly earnings (PAWE) is $3,853
o The insurer is to make eligible weekly payments to the claimant in accordance with sections 3.6 and 3.7 of the Act and having regard to Clause 7.230 of Motor Accident Guidelines (effective 15 January 2019).
- Effective Date: This determination has effect from 1 July 2018.
- Legal Costs: Not recoverable.
A brief statement of my reasons for this determination are attached to this certificate.
