Lawrence Liew replied to Jeroen Heymans's discussion Liability of council in an accident?

"IIRC, in NSW the MAA randomly allocates the management of nominal defendant claims to a licenced CTP insurer.  I think there is an equalisation process such that each licenced insurer pays a proportional share of all nominal defendant claims…"

"Josh is right. It is also very expensive to get copy of transcripts. It can run into thousands."

Josh replied to Lawrence Liew's discussion Nominal Defendant v Hawkins [2011] NSWCA 93
"If the victim can't find the motorist, the "random" insurer has incentive to try as well. I'd suggest that once an offending motorist is identified, it should no longer be a Nominal Defendant proceeding - ie. the case would be…"

"Yes indeed. Legal research is very important to me and sometimes, I wish every decision ever handed down is published."
