    Your Questions On Personal Injury Claims Answered

    There is a 2-year time limit from the date of your accident or ‘date of knowledge’ of your injury for making a personal injury claim in Ireland. The respondent (defendant) must be notified by the injured party or plaintiff (claimant) of their intent to make a claim within one month of the accident/injury occurring.

    The date of knowledge is the day when the injuries become apparent to the injured party. In many cases it is the day of the accident but sometimes injuries/illness can take longer to manifest. Where injury/illness becomes apparent at a later time, that date is known as the ‘date of knowledge’.

    We will advise you if you have a claim and on the strength of your case. Eligibility for making a claim rests on whether you have been involved in an accident or injured in an incident that was the fault of another person and that the incident occurred within the last two years.

    Many factors considered to reach a settlement on a compensation amount. The Injuries Board Book of Quantum is a useful resource for estimating personal injury compensation claims. The book lists amounts awarded in the past and can help inform compensation estimates based on the injured party’s specific injuries.

    Factors taken into account in a personal injury claim settlement include pain/suffering, impaired quality of life, loss of earnings past and future, medical expenses as a result of injuries and future medical care.

    Any personal injury sustained as a minor (under 18 years) can be subject to a claim for two years after the person’s 18th birthday.

    The Personal Injuries Assessment Board is an independent State body which assesses compensation in relation to personal injury claims. All compensation claims for personal injury sustained by people in motor accidents, workplace accidents and public liability accidents must be submitted to and assessed by the PIAB, unless settled early between the parties involved.

    Psychiatric or psychological injuries which are not directly related to a personal injury claim will not be assessed by the PIAB. If there is a psychological or psychiatric element to a personal injuries claim, the Board will likely proceed to assessment.

    On average, claims made to the PIAB are currently assessed in a little more than 7 months, according to recent figures. However, this is an average processing time only and some assessments may take longer. Personal injury claims which are processed in the courts can take up to 36 months.
