The Personal Injury Education Foundation Ltd was established in 2006 by a consortium of Australian and New Zealand accident compensation regulators, insurers and claims management organisations who shared the vision of creating leading educational programs, initiatives and events focused on the needs of those working in the accident compensation industry.
The programs and events developed by PIEF have been designed to enrich and enhance the range and depth of personal injury management skills, leading to better outcomes for all accident compensation schemes and the communities they are designed to serve.
Some of the events PIEF host and are involved with are:
