What is the PIAB Injuries Board?

The Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) is the Government body which makes personal injury awards.

Any person that has suffered such injury can make a claim to this body and their forms are available on their website www.injuriesboard.ie.
So why should you seek independent legal advice, if you can make the claim yourself?

 

Well there are a number of reasons to do so and they are as follows;

  • The Injury board can issue an award within a very large band, and this can affects a claimant in regards to the amount they are awarded.
  • A qualified Solicitor with experience and knowledge of the workings of The Personal Injuries Assessment Board can assist and therefore clearly identify the award that is relevant to your claim.
  • Also all claims are subject to Statutory Time limits. These very strict deadlines are applied under the Statute of limitations and 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 PIAB in Ireland. Your referred solicitor will immediately advise you of this.
  • Who do you claim against? The Injury Board will not advise you on who you are to claim against. The Board can not advise you on any aspect of your claim and must remain impartial at all times. This may have an impact upon your claim as if you do not get the details exactly right, and that includes the naming of the insurance company and or the person you are claiming from as examples, this may will result in delay and possibly the barring of your claim due to it being out of time, or the person you have named is not to person in regards to the claim.
