Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury in the Workplace and Home

Concussion Awareness New Zealand made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

The request was successful.

From: Concussion Awareness New Zealand

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

1) Does the Corporation have any updated information/guidelines that include Concussion/mTBI issues solely in the context of Workplace and in the Home rather than Sports

2) Are there statistics held whereby claimants have made a claim where there has been an initial injury/trauma to cranium (or any other part of body) and then a subsequent claim has been made afterwards for a Concussion/mTBI complication

3) Where does ACC obtain their Concussion-related Guidelines/Professional advice from in order to assess Concussion-related injuries and Entitlement's applied for by Claimants

Yours faithfully,

Concussion Awareness New Zealand
