I was reading this article about two women who were accidentally served dishwashing liquid instead of wine when I came across this passage;
Under New Zealand's no-fault accident law, victims do not sue for damages. Instead, treatment costs and income loss are met by the nation's Accident Compensation scheme.
The company will be sentenced next month and faces a possible fine.
What a great sounding system! The law is effectively removed from the health/treatment side of the house, and the punters still benefit of having their interests looked after.
Go the Kiwis.
