On Friday, 24 April 2020, the High Court handed down an important decision on the interaction between the Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”),1 and State law. The decision also addressed the meaning and scope of “personal injury” claims under the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) (“CLA”). This article considers the decision predominantly from a Victorian perspective. Victoria’s definition of “personal injury” in the Wrongs Act 1958 (Vic) (“WA”) is identical to NSW’s definition in the CLA.
