d’finitive | Motor Injury Insights June 2020

  • The lockdown and beyond

    Our latest Motor Injury Insights d'finitive discusses the possible ramifications of COVID-19 for motor injury insurance due to the consequential shutdown and social distancing measures.

    We suggest that beyond the short term impacts of reduced traffic and congestion, there will be longer term consequences for CTP and lifetime care schemes.

    In this issue we focus on:

    • Short term reductions in traffic volume and collisions
    • Will the CTP claim frequency reduce?
    • What about accident severity?
    • Other claim impacts and impacts on NIIS.

    We also provide our regular round-up of motor injury news and take a look at the regulation of e-scooters in Australia.
