Claims Farming amendments to CTP legislation in Queensland

Overview

Make sure you understand the details of the Queensland Motor Accident Insurance and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2019 passed in December 2019. The legislation, which was designed to prevent claims farming, may affect members’ day-to-day practice and impact legitimate relationships between law firms and community groups.

Hear Neil Singleton of the Insurance Commission, Queensland Treasury, Greg Spinda of Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and Peter Gibson of Shine Lawyers explain the detail of this new legislation.

Topics

Greg Spinda – discussing the new key provisions and what this means for any referral relationships

Peter Gibson – discussing the practice management impacts of the claims farming legislation including the law practice and claimant certificates, new claim forms, proper recording of referrals and transitional issues

Neil Singleton – updating the profession on the investigation and enforcement mechanisms relevant to the new claims farming provisions
