Fast track pilot consultation.
Earlier this year, the Common Law Division invited representatives of the Transport Accident Commission, the Law Institute of Victoria, plaintiff and defendant firms, judicial officers of the County Court and court staff to explore and identify initiatives that might improve the management of proceedings for damages in respect of death or personal injury related to a motor vehicle accident.
In response to the matters discussed at the Workshop, the Court proposes to conduct a pilot ‘Fast Track’ case management procedure for certain types of motor vehicle damages proceedings and seeks feedback from stakeholders on a draft Notice to the Profession - Motor Vehicle Accident Damages Proceedings Fast Track Pilot. The Consultation Paper including proposed criteria and procedure can be downloaded below.
Feedback should be provided via email by 30 September 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org@seirujni.lanosrep using the subject line ‘MVA Fast Track Pilot Consultation’.
