TAC lawyer John Voyage has practiced in personal injury law for
his entire career. John's commitment to his specialty aims at
redressing the balance between powerful insurers, such as the TAC,
and people vulnerable through injury and consequent loss of
John has assisted many thousands of clients in their disputes with
the TAC. These have included test cases protecting clients' rights,
and extending (or clarifying) TAC's responsibilities. John says
that winning a dispute with TAC regarding its contribution for
payment of a pair of glasses, or its contribution for the purchase
and modification of a motorcar, is just as important as when he
wins a big settlement for a client.
He chairs the Law Institute of Victoria's TAC Committee, is a
member of the Road Trauma Committee, and has been a state and
national convenor for the Motor Vehicle Accident Special Interest
Group within the Australian Lawyers Alliance. John has also been
involved in many hands-on efforts with outreach groups.
John has submitted a Motorcycle Safety Inquiry Submission to the
Victorian Parliament. Read about this submission and post your own comments on our
