The laws governing compulsory motor vehicle insurance in Western Australia changed on 1 July 2016 with the introduction of the Motor Vehicle (Catastrophic Injuries) Act 2016 (WA).

The expanded motor injury insurance cover provides treatment, care and support for people who are catastrophically injured in a vehicle crash in Western Australia, irrespective of whether another driver is found at fault in the crash.

Geoff Bourhill and Fab Zanuttigh will provide a detailed overview of the changes including all of the entitlements and exclusions, and will assess the practical impact of the changes on motor vehicle insurance in Western Australia.

This seminar is highly recommended for all practitioners who practice in the area of motor vehicle accident claims and personal injury law in general.
