Tailored support for you
Most accidents result in injuries like sprains, strains and breaks. If you’re recovering from these kinds of injuries, you usually just need us to help pay for your treatment.
If your recovery is straightforward, we have a team ready to answer your questions and help you get what you need. This means you can always talk to someone when you get in touch.
If you need more support, or it's likely you will have a life-long relationship with us, you’ll have a dedicated person helping you manage your needs.
As your needs change over time, we’ll work with you to tailor the level of support you’re getting.

We asked for feedback from our clients and their whānau about how we could improve our services. Some people told us that we need to get out of their way, and others said that they need more support from us than they currently receive.
In September 2020, we finished making changes to how we provide support based on that customer feedback.
We’re still listening, adapting and improving how we support injured New Zealanders.
