NIIS Queensland: Motor accidents

The Queensland Government today introduced the National Injury Insurance Scheme (Queensland) Bill 2016.

Despite the broad title of the Bill, it only seeks to ensure that persons who suffer particular serious personal injuries as a result of a motor accident in Queensland (after 1 July 2016) will be entitled to receive necessary and reasonable treatment, care and support, regardless of fault: section 3.

It appears that the proposed scheme will be optional, in the sense that injured persons who can prove fault will be able to claim under the existing scheme.
