$48.91 million has been paid out in compensation under the no fault scheme by the Accident Compensation Commission of Fiji since 1st January 2018.

$32.66 million of this payout was for motor vehicle accidents, $15.2 million for employment accidents and $1.03 million for school accidents.

The ACCF says 80 percent of the $48.914 million would not have been paid if the applications for compensation were made prior to the introduction of the Accident Compensation Scheme.

One of the recipients of the compensation expressed their appreciation to the ACCF for the decision to compensate their younger brother for the death of their nephew and son.

A recipient lost their brother in a motor vehicle accident some years ago and they never received compensation because of the requirements at the time.

Another recipient said her husband was the sole bread winner for her family, she will invest half of the money received from ACCF and she will use the other half to fulfill his wish, that is to renovate and extend his family home.

Another recipient says with this compensation, she is able to plan her child’s knee treatment and it also gives her some peace of mind because she had a lot of costs after the accident.

ACCF CEO, Parvez Akbar informed the ACCF board has continued to receive positive feedback from satisfied applicants.
