Three-Year Review of the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2019 (ACT)

1st Nov 2023



The ALA made a submission to the Three-Year Review of the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2019 (MAI Act). The ALA’s submission raises a number of matters in response to the Review’s Discussion Paper with regard to how the relatively new Motor Accident Injuries Scheme (MAI Scheme) is operating to date, including:

  • the significant power imbalances contained in the MAI Act;
  • drafting issues in the MAI Act, which affect the MAI Act’s application and how the MAI Act’s provisions interact with other pieces of legislation;
  • concerns held by ALA members about the Whole Person Impairment assessment framework;
  • the uncertainty for injured motorists regarding how the MAI Scheme interacts with workers compensation entitlements; and
  • the resolution of common law claims.
