Responded By: Hon Yvette D'Ath MP on 19/03/2018

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that victims of catastrophic personal injury, who are unable to make a claim, due to their medical condition at the time, have their rights extinguished at the expiry of the three year limit stipulated by the Limitations of Actions Act 1994.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to amend the limit placed on personal injury stipulated in the Limitations of Actions Act 1994 to ten years and allow an amnesty to victims whose rights have already been extinguished regardless of elapsed time frames.
