The Civil Liability and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2010, which received royal assent on 17 March, amends several aspects of common law damages and civil liability threshold amounts.

For injuries arising after 1 July 2010, a new increased schedule of general damages will apply under the Civil Liability Regulation 2003. This scale will be subject to indexation annually. Injuries arising between 2 December 2002 and 30 June 2010 will be subject to the existing general damages scale, which will remain unindexed.
