The Injuries Board / Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) is the state body which was set up under legislation to assess, in the first instance, every personal injury case in the country. It is entitled to make an assessment of the compensation which should be payable in cases.
We represent claimants in the Injuries Board process. We make the application to the Injuries Board and advise on the adequacy of the compensation awarded by the Injuries Board.
Where either party reject an Injuries Board assessment of the case then the case can proceed to court where the court will assess the appropriate compensation. We have extensive experience of representing claimants in court proceedings to recover appropriate compensation for their injury and losses.
Where the Injuries Board or a defendant makes an offer to settle a claim we advise the client on the adequacy or otherwise of the settlement offer. We have experience of achieving significant compensation for clients. We have succeeded in the following cases recently:
- A leg injury sustained by an employee in an accident at work
- A whiplash injury from a road traffic accident where a car was rear ended
- A neck and back injury due to a trip / slip and fall on a dangerous public footpath
- An ankle injury from a hazardous hole in a public footpath
If you have suffered an injury and believe that you may have a claim please ring us for a consultation to discuss your case.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, an accident at work or anywhere else or believe that you may have a case of medical negligence please contact us now for your first consultation. You should note that a claim can be barred as out of time unless it is commenced within a certain period of time. Therefore you should contact your personal injury solicitor immediately to make sure that your case is commenced within the permitted legal time frame.
