The new expanded cover ensures that all people catastrophically injured in motor vehicle crashed in WA are provided necessary and reasonable treatment, care and support.
The increase for per family car and motorcycle is an additional $99 for the first year of the new scheme. The additional cost for most tractors will be $25, while the premium increase for mopeds, farm fire-fighting vehicles and vintage cars will be $30.
