We can help and advise you with your claim * for personal injuries with the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB).

The (PIAB) is an independent statutory body which assesses the amount of compensation due to a person who has suffered a personal injury as a result of an accident. You should be aware that the Civil Liability & Courts Act, 2004 stipulates that the time limit for bringing a claim is two years from the date of the accident.

The PIAB make no rulings or determination as to liability or who was responsible but only assess what compensation is payable to the injured party on the basis of the injuries suffered. They make these calculations with reference to what is termed a Book of Quantum (amount) which lists common injuries and their related compensation.

What do we do?

We have over 25 years experience in personal injuries claims and can advise on the value of any offer or assessment which may be made by the PIAB. If the award is insufficient or has not been accepted or no offer has been made by the party at fault, we will then prepare Court papers.

If you would like to receive some advice in relation to a claim you are considering please contact us
