Accident Compensation Tracker


Available exclusively on Westlaw NZ, Accident Compensation Tracker is a comprehensive, searchable collection of accident compensation appeal cases. Accident Compensation Tracker is a research tool which enables practitioners to locate accident compensation cases involving similar injuries and to assist them to advise their clients on the level of compensation that they are likely to be awarded in relation to the types of injury that they have sustained. Accident Compensation Tracker includes approximately 3500 cases, and is updated daily, as relevant judgments and decisions are released.

The Accident Compensation Tracker’s search function allows practitioners to conduct targeted searches of accident compensation case law by means of search fields and pick lists which enable them to locate the exact case or range of cases that they are looking for based on the type of injuries sustained, the injury site, the cause of the injury, the circumstances of the accident, the outcome of the case, the category of cover, the industry in which the person who sustained the injury was working, amount and type of ACC entitlements awarded, the successful party, and the grounds of appeal.

The Accident Compensation Tracker provides users with invaluable guidance on the merits or otherwise of conducting a successful appeal against an ACC decision to decline compensation to their clients.


Our editors provide specialist analysis of thousands of cases both reported and unreported and a unique search template enables users to conduct research over the relevant circumstances of each accident compensation case. Using the advanced search template, users can quickly identify relevant cases using a number of factors, as:

  • Type of Personal Injury (including treatment injury and mental injury)
  • Industry type
  • Injury cause
  • Standard and burden of proof
  • Injury site
