In 2020 the New South Wales Parliament passed the Personal Injury Commission Act 2020
which was legislation to establish a Personal Injury Commission. The idea behind the Personal Injury Commission is that it will combine the Dispute Resolution Systems of the Workers Compensation and CTP Insurance Schemes into one Tribunal. The commencement date of the Personal Injury Commission is 1 March 2021.
The New South Wales Governments hope is that the new Personal Injury Commission will make it easier and more cost effective for injured people to claim in their respective jurisdictions.
The Personal Injury Commission will adapt a digital platform and it is expected that regional cases will now proceed on par with city matters, avoiding unnecessary delay.
Importantly, there will be no changes to the entitlements to injured workers.
