CTP Insurance Tasmania
CTP Insurance Tas
In Tasmania, compulsory third party (CTP) personal injury insurance scheme is a no-fault scheme. As a result, the CTP insurance Tasmania scheme provides medical and income benefits to everyone injured in road accidents, whether it was their fault or not. Injured people can also sue for damages under common law if they can prove it was somebody else’s fault.
Motor Accidents Insurance Board (MAIB) is the Tas government insurer so there are no private CTP insurers.
MAIB carries out these tasks:
- Manage the CTP scheme
- Ensure injured people get the treatment they need
- Support road safety measures to reduce accidents.
MAIB’s Long Term Care program provides lifetime care to people who are seriously injured in a road accident. Also, it funds purpose-built group residences in Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone for seriously injured people.
CTP insurance Tasmania is compulsory and so it is automatically included in your vehicle registration fee.
