Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 “An Accident Waiting to Happen"

Simon Harben SC and Simon Hunt, 16 June 2017

All of us here are familiar with the so called reform of Compulsory Third Party Insurance over the years and in particular, since the mid 1980s.

On 9th March, 2017 Victor Dominello, the then Minister for Finance, Services and Property, introduced the Motor Accidents Injuries Bill 2017 into the NSW Parliament. The Bill was read for a second time and has now been enacted (the MAI) and, as Hunt points out in his paper, is due to commence on 1st December, 2017.
