I need an affidavit as I have been on ACC since November 2018 but should be on the weekly comp that I was on in 2016

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: HelloI need an affidavit as I have been on ACC since November 2018 but should be on the weekly comp that I was on in 2016 from a neck operation.I have had two back ops since then the first one was a stuff up and a locking cap came off a screw and now I have seen another surgeon who deals totally in spinal surgery.The weekly comp I am on at the moment is only 80% of a 25 hour week which was at 20$/hour before tax. Ihave a letter from my old boss at Harcourts; Helen Larson, see attached.Since the second neck op I have only worked part time and have been incapacitated ever since. However; as I was a sole trader and could work my own hours and didn't get a med cert, so therefore; ACC have declined me for this and now I am reviewing their decision.This is why I need an affidavit stating that I have been incapacitated since my operation in August 2016 and therefore should be back on the same compensation I was on back in August 2016, this means they will need to back pay me from November 2018.Hoping you are able to help.Cheers Bronee

To draw up an affidavit is fairly simple. The reviwer will probably accept the letter as it is, but if you want to produce this you can use an affiadvit form-have a look at this site for guidence

Thank you did you get the letter attached so you could see that too?

Yes, I saw that. You can produce that on the review or redraft the letter and get her to sign an affidavit which says the same things

Customer
Thank you very much Chris
