When decisions relate to elderly people, disabled people, single parents, small business people or immigrants, there are large numbers who suffer from erroneous decisions without filing a complaint. Indeed, the total volume of injustice is likely to be much greater among those who accept initial decisions than among those who complain or appeal. For this reason alone, thoroughness and procedural fairness are more important in primary adjudication than they are in appellate processes.

There may also be an assumption in the minds of some that "administrative justice" can apply only to questions of determining legal entitlements, as opposed, for example, to considering whether an individual has been the victim of maladministration or poor quality service.
