Nominal Defendant

Sometimes people are injured by a vehicle that was uninsured or unidentified (eg hit and run), meaning the injured person wouldn’t usually be able to apply for CTP compensation.

However, in NSW all insurers are required to be part of the Nominal Defendant fund. Where a vehicle is uninsured, or unidentified the injured person can make a claim through the Nominal Defendant, meaning they don’t go without adequate treatment or compensation.
