    Yes, but total coin to accidents vs extra paid is a whole different number again. As opposed to regoed motorcyclists

    Hate to say it but I have had a good run with Acc , but then I don't abuse them , and try to keep any discussions constructive , and , probly most important , I have a genuine case , but I been on it for 8 years now and don't see it coming to an end any time soon. The only time I get grief is when my case worker gets shit from above and has to pass it down ...... but it always is the same deal , I go to a bunch of peeps who look the case and me over and report back to Acc , we meet , and discuss options and they leave me alone for another year . One guy , supposedly a Dr inspected my leg ( medical case review ) , said there was nothing more that could be done . the next day I went to the orthopod , he sent me for a CT scan and found my femur was again broken at the graft and had been for a while ............they didn't send me back there

    Injury statistics tool


    Interactive tool tells the story. If you scroll down to near the bottom of the main page, you will see an option for sports claims. Refine the search from there

    Me and acc don't see eye to eye. Wanted me to get surgery on a crook shoulder, surgeon said three months minimum at very best 90% good afterwards. Everyone else said don't, pyshio etc. So I didn't, two weeks later I was back into it and fine. Saved those fuckers heaps but they sniveled and whinged.

    your problem maybe by leaving it wirehunt your only alternative down the line is a replacement.
    hope not get it checked at least yearly to see if anythings degenerating.
