Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB)

The PIAB was established in 2003 under the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) Act. It is a legislative body that assesses personal injury compensation for victims of occupational, motor vehicle, and public liability incidents without the need for lengthy litigation.

The PIAB team is made up of a number of technical specialists as well as administrative workers who are in charge of preparing claims.

Personal Injury Assessment Board – Compensation

The Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) is an independent State body in Ireland that assesses personal injury compensation in a timely and cost-effective manner. Personal injuries sustained in motor vehicle collisions, workplace accidents, and public liability accidents are assessed by the PIAB. Unless plaintiffs and insurers/respondents reach an early settlement, all personal injury cases must go through PIAB.

Medical negligence claims are not included in the incidents that may be submitted under the legislation that created PIAB.  Since its inception in 2004, the PIAB has reviewed over 130,000 claims, with over 60% of claimants accepting its findings. This method has low transaction costs and can be more efficient than litigation.

Personal Injuries Assessment Board Model

Claims may be settled directly between the parties, through a PIAB assessment, or through litigation. Overall liability thresholds are largely determined by court rulings, and the PIAB model protects the fundamental right to access the courts.
