Claims of people with a disability that had an accident on a footpath

I want to find out how many acc claims there were from people that have a disability and had an accident on a footpath. Either caused by cyclist or an (e)scooter.

This will actually help with NZTA’s proposal for the innovating streets package.

Have clear data for people voting for or against the NZTA’s proposal for the innovating streets package.

Data does not exist

Kia ora Jessica Unfortunately, ACC cannot provide you the data you requested, as we do not collect information about whether or not people with a claim have a disability. This is because we do not need this information to make a decision on a claim. We are declining your request under section 18(g) of the Official Information Act 1982, as ACC does not hold the information and we believe no other agency holds it. If you have any queries, please contact me at If you are not happy with this response, you have the right to make a complaint to the Ombudsman. Information about how to do this is available at or by phoning 0800 802 602. Nga mihi Sasha Wood Manager OIA Services, ACC
