Personal Injury Solicitor Dublin | Personal Injury Claims Law Review
PIAB, the Personal Injuries Assessment Board is to release new findings on personal injury claims in Ireland, particularly in relation to whiplash claims.
By: Personal Injury Solicitors Dublin
On a substantial review of the personal injury claims case history in Ireland, PIAB reviewed over 4,500 individual cases and found that claimants in Ireland are receiving more than four times the amount of damages, compared to similar claims in England and Wales.
The study shows that whiplash accounts for almost 70% of claims related to car accidents.
Former President of the High Court, Nicholas Kearns has warned that there is a high risk of abuse of the personal injury claims process in Ireland because the system is very genuine in seeking to recompense victims of personal injury, and additionally because the risk of prosecution for fraudulent claims is so low.
It is thought that part of the reason for the publication of the PIAB report is to shine a light on the personal injury claims process in Ireland, to understand if the system is being preyed upon by spurious claims, and to better correlate the damages with those available in other legal jurisdictions.
