Dr Benjamin Hinchcliff, DPT, LLB
Specialist ACC Lawyer



An ACC review occurs after an application has been lodged with ACC. FairWay handles ACC's reviews and they have locations around New Zealand where the parties meet to discuss the case. Prior to the review, submissions are lodged with FairWay. The Applicant's (you) and Respondent's (ACC) submissions contain the facts, medical opinion, case law, legislation and the expected outcome of the case.

ACC Legal can handle all of your review and district court appeal requirements such as the required applications, submissions and teleconferences.

The Cost of going to review is based on the complexity of your case. A simple review is usually at no direct cost to you. ACC is required to cover the applicants legal fees up to a prescribed amount. FairWay will not grant an applicant legal fees if the case has no merit.
