ACC launch campaign to prevent 'silly season' accidents

There's a reason they call this 'the silly season’, with stats showing we get sillier and more accident-prone around the holidays.

Last year, on Christmas Day alone, more than 4000 Kiwis had an accident worthy of an ACC claim.

Common mishaps include wine corks in eyes, falling trees and puppy scratches.

That's why ACC is launching a campaign highlighting unusual accidents you can prevent.

Over the next 12 days, ACC will be releasing videos highlighting some of the more quirky injuries and accidents that seem to pop up every year. Source: Seven Sharp
