The Public Utilities Board has been requested by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador to review and report on a number of issues with respect to automobile insurance in the province, including the reasons behind increasing claims costs for private passenger vehicles and taxi operators, and options to reduce these costs. The Board has been specifically asked to examine the impact on rates and implications for claimants of introducing a monetary cap on claims for non-economic loss for minor/mild injuries or continuing with the current deductible of $2,500 or increasing the deductible.
The public hearing will recommence on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. at its offices in St. John’s. At the hearing the Board’s consultants will present their findings and interested persons will have the opportunity to present their views to the Board. Any person may observe and attend the hearing at any time.
