Accident compensation in New Zealand: The law relating to compensation for personal injury by accident in New Zealand [Blair, A. P] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Accident compensation in New Zealand: The law relating to compensation for personal injury by accident in New ZealandAuthor: A.

P Blair. Summary: This study offers a comprehensive historical account of political and legislative developments in accident compensation in New Zealand, leading to the no-fault comprehensive compensation scheme, which came into force in It also discusses the sociology of work-related injury. Personal Injury in New Zealand is an essential resource for anyone who is required to research or provide advice on personal injury compensation.

New Zealand is a world leader in intervening legislatively to recognise and mitigate the impact on society and individuals of the social and financial consequences of accidents causing personal injury. The introduction of the Accident Compensation Act. InNew Zealand established the Accident Compensation Corporation (“ACC”).

The ACC oversees a scheme of no fault compensation. Although the scheme is detailed, the core idea was to abolish personal injury claims and replace them with compensation for the treatment and recovery of those who suffer injuries.

In the New Zealand system, injured patients receive government-funded compensation through the ACC. In exchange, they give up the right to sue for damages arising out of any personal injury Cited by: 5 Compensation for Personal Injury in New Zealand: Report of the Royal Corn- mission of Inquiry, Govt.

Printer, Wellington, (Hereinafter quoted as. The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides compulsory insurance cover for personal injury for everyone in New Zealand, whether a citizen, resident or visitor. This means if you are injured by an accident in New Zealand, ACC may pay some of your medical and rehabilitation costs.

Since New Zealand has had a comprehensive no fault accident compensation scheme for those who suffer personal injury. This means that all personal injury victims whether they are injured on the road, at home, in a hospital, at play, or at work are covered by the one Act - the Accident Rehabilitation and Compensation Insurance Act 1.

If there is cover for personal injury or death under the legislation, no civil claim for compensation may be brought in the courts. The statutory bar to proceedings means that there is no civil liability in New Zealand for most personal injuries. An alternative approach requires the amount of compensation to properly reflect the amount of harm that has been caused.

It does cover the big topics which arise, such as definitions and parameters of cover, personal injury and accident which underpin the whole legislative scheme.

When first introduced, New Zealand’s Accident Compensation Scheme was widely applauded as a commendable social response to the vagaries of common law personal injury litigation. Undoubtedly, the common law provided a very clumsy and inappropriate mechanism for dealing with personal injury.

Additional information is available from the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) .In New Zealand the ability of students (and parents on their beha lf) to sue a school for negligence is severely limited by the accident compensation legislation which bars claims for compensatory damages for personal injury other than mental injury not suffered as the result of physical harm.The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) (Māori: Te Kaporeihana Āwhina Hunga Whara) is the New Zealand Crown entity responsible for administering the country's no-fault accidental injury compensation scheme, commonly referred to as the ACC scheme.

The scheme provides financial compensation and support to citizens, residents, and temporary visitors who have suffered personal injuries.
