No fault accident insurance scheme for Qld

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Terry O'Connor

Total Signatures - 830

Sponsoring Member: Evan Moorhead MP

Tabled Date: 11/11/2008

Responded By: Hon Andrew Fraser MP on 3/12/2008

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the inadequacy of the current compulsory third party insurance system in Queensland. The current system leaves many motorists and their families vulnerable to financial and emotional devastation. Your petitioners therefore request the House to amend the existing CTP regime to introduce a scheme like that existing in Tasmania and Victoria where, regardless of fault, every injured driver is insured for the costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation services, disability services, income assistance, travel and household support services that are required as a result of injuries from a transport accident and, in the case of drivers killed in a transport accident, funeral expenses, family support and grief counselling.
