The Government's paper indicates that a workers compensation-style scheme may be introduced for innocent victims of motor accidents. The President of the Bar Association, Noel Hutley SC has this morning issued a media release expressing concerns that a model which concentrates upon time restricted and modest no fault benefits (as opposed to common law remedies) for all but the most seriously injured will adversely affect many thousands of innocent motor accident victims. View the President's media release. Members will be kept up to date with developments via In Brief.
