Injuries Board Ireland – interesting facts

May 31, 2016

At a recent briefing with the Irish Injuries Board, we were given some interesting information, by one of their solicitors, Suzanne Hill,:-

  • Motor injury claims account for 75% of total compensation awards
  • Public liability claims ( eg. fall on footpath, injury in supermarket etc.) is next at 17%
  • And injury compensation claims against employers is last at 8%

The amount of claims has increased in the last year, but this is being put down to more people at work and more people driving on the roads.

The average award by the Injuries Board has fallen from €23,166 in 2009 to €22,878 in 2015.

The lowest amount of claims per hundred of population is Kilkenny !
