We are an Auckland-based firm specialising in accident compensation law. Partners Philip Schmidt and Hamish Peart represent claimants in all areas of ACC and personal injury law, including:
- ACC reviews, appeals and mediations
- injury cover, including treatment injury (medical misadventure)
- weekly compensation and loss of potential earnings
- attendant care and home help
- vocational independence decisions
- lump sum (major injury)
- surgery costs
- historic claims
- fraud investigations
In addition to our ACC practice, we litigate personal insurance cases (e.g. claims under total and permanent disability, income protection or trauma policies). We also represent victims in criminal sentencing matters relating to reparation for injury and emotional harm.
We have professional relationships with medical specialists and other assessors who we can instruct to provide independent advice and expert evidence.
We do not do legal aid work. There are different fee options available depending on the type of case. We are happy to have an initial discussion to assess the merits of your case.
