With the Queen of Personal Injury Lawyers Noor Blumer running the Law Society we should not be surprised they’re stoically defending the personal injury system which drive the cost of Compulsory Third Party car insurance.
Ms Noor Blumer, the President of the ACT Law Society released a comparative table of CTP premiums today.
“As the table shows it is difficult to directly compare ACT premiums with NSW premiums because there are so many factors that influence NSW premiums including age of driver, age of car, driving record and location,” Ms Blumer observed.
“What we can say is that ACT premiums are significantly lower than Sydney, Parramatta, the Blue Mountains and Sydney suburbs and about the same as Wollongong and Newcastle,” Ms Blumer said.
“You can’t really compare Canberra with Queanbeyan. Even so, a 24 year old can expect to pay as much as his/her equivalent in the ACT,” stated Ms Blumer.
“The major difference is injured people are properly compensated if they are injured in the ACT. That’s the point of insurance,” said Ms Blumer.
