Glossary of ACC terms

Ageing process causation

Ageing process causation

Where a client's natural ageing process is a significant and contributory cause of an injury.

In this situation, ACC will seek specialist advice as to how much support will be provided, to reflect the effects of the injury only.

Conditions that arise totally from the natural ageing process cannot be covered by ACC.
