Catastrophic Injuries Support

Insurance Commission of Western Australia

Why do we need catastrophic injuries support?

A crash can happen to anyone.

People catastrophically injured in crashes need a lot of care and support, but many miss out as the existing Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance scheme doesn’t cover them.

That is the reason why motor injury insurance is being expanded from 1 July 2016.

It will ensure that all people catastrophically injured in motor vehicle crashes in Western Australia from this time will be covered for the treatment, care and support they need over the course of their lives.

From this same date, vehicle regos will go up to help cover the cost of this care.

The cost of the expanded insurance cover will be a maximum of $99 in the first year for each vehicle and motorcycle.
