The Domestic Care Calculator calculates past domestic care in respect of gratuitous attendant care services which are claimable under:

  • s.128 of the NSW Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999
  • s.15 of the NSW Civil Liability Act 2002
  • s.174 of the Victorian Transport Accident Act 1986, or
  • s.281B of the Victorian Wrongs Act 1958

To use the calculator, enter the relevant periods of care between the date of
