The Transport Accident Act protocols

The Transport Accident Act protocols


The Transport Accident Act Protocols (the Protocols) are changing on 1 July 2016.

Why change?

In 2005, the Protocols were established by agreement between the Australian Lawyers Alliance (ALA), Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) and Transport Accident Commission (TAC). The Protocols were designed to provide an efficient, expeditious and transparent process to deliver appropriate compensation to TAC claimants and to minimise disputes and lengthy litigation.

Over the last 10 years, the Protocols have successfully reduced the time taken to deliver common law compensation to TAC claimants with over 90% of common law matters resolved within 12 months of serious injury decision. Over 80% of common law cases and no fault disputes are resolved through the Protocol processes.

In recent months, representatives of the ALA, LIV and TAC have been working together to identify and consider a number of changes to enhance the operation of the Protocols and further improve the efficient and effective delivery of outcomes for TAC claimants.
