Piab Injuries Board

There is a lot of misinformation that surrounds the utility of the PIAB that someone who suffers a personal injury should be aware of.

Why hire a personal injury* solicitor when you are going to the injuries board? Going the personal injuries assessment board route has a number of disadvantages without engaging a solicitor

What is a good award from the Injuries Board could you tell?
The PIAB can issue a award within a very large band that can differ in the thousands could you know that you can get a much bigger settlement? Only a Solicitor with experience and knowledge can identify this.

What are the Statutory Time limits?
Very strict deadlines are applied under the Statute of limitations and also the Civil Liability Acts concerning when a claim may be made. How can this affect you? Simply it can mean that if you the injured person waits for too long you may not proceed with your claim with the injuries board Ireland. A solicitor will immediately advise you of this.

Who do you claim against?
The Personal Injury Board will not advise you on who you are to claim against. This sounds fairly spurious but unless you get it exactly right in the naming of the insurance company for example this will result in delay and possibly the barring of your claim due to it being out of time. Again a solicitor will get this right for you.

Piab Injuries Board

How good is the quality of the claim paper work?
The PIAB will make no comment on the quality of your claim. This means that your assessment may be arrived at incorrectly due to the poor quality of your paper work in filling out the injuries board form a. A personal injury* claims solicitor will make sure that your application piab form a is good and complete, will explain what happens next if the insurance company rejects or accepts the Injuries Board’s assessment. They will advise on the amount of compensation award and will conduct any negotiations necessary.

Who will advise you if you decide to reject an assessment?
The PIAB are not allowed to advise you in these circumstances. Only a personal injury solicitor can do this for you.

Who negotiates for you if the insurance company makes you an offer?
Again the PIAB will not negotiate for you in these circumstances. All Personal injury solicitors in Dublin can do this for you and you have many to choose from.

you are not happy with the assessment and decide to take the matter to court who advises you?
Again you will get no help from the injuries board; only a personal injury solicitor can do this for you.

On the face of it the PIAB is a good system to have but you need a referred personal injury solicitor at your side to advise you every step of the way in your personal injury claims situation.
