Settled Before PIAB Authorisation

Our client was a passenger in a car involved which collided with another car and suffered soft tissue injuries.

It was uncertain which of the drivers was responsible for the collision. We wrote to the both drivers notifying them of our client’s intention to make a personal injuries claim. Ultimately one of the insurance companies indicated that it would be prepared to deal with our client’s claim.

We made an application to the Injuries Board and then received an invitation from the insurance company to discuss settlement of our client’s claim. We met with the insurance company representative at the Four Courts and settled our client’s claim for €18,500 plus outlays and a contribution towards legal fees. This meant that the client did not have to wait for the Injuries Board assessment to issue which in our experience generally takes at least a year.
