Important information for NSW road accident injury victims
In March 2017, the New South Wales parliament passed the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 which introduced the states new CTP scheme. Under the new scheme injured people are now eligible for statutory benefits for up to 6 months (26 weeks) which includes a percentage of their pre-injury earnings, medical treatment, rehabilitation and care.
Compensation for pain and suffering
Since the implementation of the new scheme victims with relatively serious injuries are now only eligible for pain and suffering compensation if they are able to prove Whole Person Impairment (WPI) of over 10%. This means the rights of many innocent car crash victims have been significantly reduced.
Comment from the NSW Bar association
‘The New South Wales Bar Association cannot support these aspects of the new system which undermine the legal rights of people injured in motor accidents. We urge the Government to reconsider its position and adhere to the Minister’s promise of providing adequate compensation to accident victims.’
So what now?
If you have been assessed as having less than 10% WPI we may still be able to help. Our expert panel of car accident lawyers acting in Sydney and NSW have on numerous occasions successfully challenged unfair medial assessments of below 10% WPI.
