Ireland Experiences Rise in Personal Injury Claims

The Injuries Board in Ireland saw a 7% increase in new personal injury claims in the first six months of 2015 compared to the same period last year, taking the total number of new claims received to 17,132.

The Injuries Board is the independent statutory body which makes personal injury compensation awards in Ireland.

Of the three claim categories the Board deals with, motor claims are up 6%, workplace claims are up 8.5% and claims for accidents in public places have increased by nearly 9%.

According to the Board, the increase in new claims to the end of June is most likely attributable to increased economic activity, with more people at work and more vehicles on the road.

Compensation to the value of €128.45 million was awarded to 5,741 personal injury claimants in the first six months of the year, compared to compensation totalling €144.68 million in respect of 6,552 awards in the same period last year.

The Board apparently expects to assess a similar number of cases in the full year 2015 to the total number assessed in 2014.

The average compensation award for the first six months of 2015 is €22,375, compared to an average award of €22,082 in the same period last year.
