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.
