What is the Injuries Board (PIAB)?

July 20th, 2011

PIAB assesses compensation for victims of Workplace, Motor and Public Liability accidents. It does not assess claims that are the result of medical negligence. PIAB will only assess a claim if the other party admits responsibility. The other party must consent before the claim can be assessed by PIAB. PIAB assess claims based on the medical evidence they are provided with and with regard to the level of compensation that is awarded for particular injuries, as set out in the PIAB Book of Quantum. If either party is dissatisfied with the award, PIAB will issue an authorization to allow you to take your case to Court*.

If a court action has to be raised, it is of course open to the other side at any stage in a court action to make a settlement offer.
