Understand how you can best support injured people accessing the MAI Scheme.

If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, the scheme you are covered under depends on the date of the accident, not the date of the application. Any claims for accidents that occurred before 1 February 2020 will be managed under the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance scheme, regardless of when the claim is made. Visit this website to find out more about the CTP scheme.
