To the Editor: Weisbrot and Breen’s proposal1 for a no-fault compensation system for medical injuries should extend to all injuries in Australia, including those from motor vehicle accidents and in the workplace. It should also apply to recreational injuries that may lead to common law compensation cases. After 40 years of clinical experience in the rehabilitation of patients with severe neurological injury, I argue that such change is long overdue.
