The Motor Vehicle Accidents NSW Publication has been amended in relation to the new regime brought in by the the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 which commenced in full on 1 December 2017 and applies to all motor vehicle accidents occurring after that date. The Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 continues to apply to accidents prior to that date and there are accordingly two separate regimes operating for at least three years.
This comprehensive and easy to follow publication helps practitioners to navigate the convoluted and restrictive legislation which applies to motor accident claims in NSW. There are two separate Guides – one for accidents which occurred prior to 1 December 2017 and another for accidents occurring on or after 1 December 2017. Each Guide contains commentary, precedents and forms specific to the relevant statutory regime.
The new Guide is available to all LEAP cloud users and via subscription to the ByLawyers website.
