3 Personal Injury Self- Help Kit Launched February 2013 by Qld ARorney- General A guide to comple5ng pre- procedure processes in Personal Injuries Proceedings Act 2002 (Qld) ( PIPA ) Public Liability claims made unviable for no win, no pay firms by Civil Liability Act 2003 (Qld) Doesn t cover workplace, MVA, medical negligence

4 The need

5 Who remembers the early 90 s? The Insurance Crisis The HIH Collapse The Darwin Awards The Ipp Report

6 A new legislaive scheme Civil Liability Act (Qld) 2002 Personal Injuries Proceedings Act (Qld) 2003 Similar schemes in other States further to Ipp Report findings Further restricted rights interstate in years since

7 Civil Liability Act 2002 (Qld) Significant amendments of Common Law re liability - obvious risks of dangerous ac5vi5es - - no responsibility to warn intoxica5on presump5on of contrib And more tellingly re damages - No exemplary, puni5ve or aggravated damages - General Damages to be calculated using tables and Injury Scale Values ( ISVs )

8 Personal Injuries Proceedings Act 2003 (Qld) Restric5ons on law firm adver5sing Pre- procedure process (essen5ally disclosure) and addi5onal limita5on periods Limita5ons on costs - - linked to mandatory offers process zero under $30K, $2950 under $50K

9 Legal Profession Act 2003 amendments to Qld Law Society Act now in the LPA Aim of protec5ng consumers Legal Services Commission was established The 50% rule for con5ngency fees on PI marers

10 The result Reduced Poten5al Awards PLUS Increased Expense PLUS Reduced Costs Recovery PLUS 50% rule = Significant retrac5on in availability of no win, no fee services THE SKY IS FALLING!

11 In reality Insurance Company profits stabilise (natural disasters to be the new villain) PI firms more profitable than ever (increased predictability) Older people, PWD, long term unemployed can s5ll be injured in Queensland with impunity

12 The Kit Ini5ated by one frustrated volunteer Mr Alex McKean Drans kicking around since 2009 Deterred by expense of publica5on and concerns re poten5al risk Inferiority complex
