What type of claim was it?

All claims

All claims include fatal claims, entitlement claims and medical fee only claims. Medical fee claims are claims that only require treatment from a registered medical practitioner, for example a visit to a General Practitioner.

Fatal claims

A fatal claim is a record of an injury that resulted in a fatality.

Entitlement claims

An entitlement claim is where ACC paid for more than just medical treatment. The most common example of an entitlement is where weekly compensation for lost earnings is paid while the injured client is off work. Other common entitlements paid for are: home help, housing modifications and vocational rehabilitation. These claims are generally for more serious injuries where people require time off work and take longer to return to independence. They therefore require more assistance and rehabilitation.
