Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC)


This agency administers New Zealand’s accident compensation scheme, which provides no-fault personal injury cover for all New Zealand citizens and residents, and visitors to New Zealand. The ACC scheme is governed by the Accident Compensation Act 2001.

An ACC claim is made when treatment for an injury is first sought from any recognised health professional, such as a doctor, a physiotherapist, or a dentist. Claims that are accepted by the ACC are divided into different categories for funding purposes. Only claims involving employees injured in work-related activities are included in this release. Customers, visitors, or bystanders injured at a workplace, who are not employees of that employer, are not included in the count unless they were performing work-related duties on behalf of their employer.

See Work-related claims for more information.
