About this course

The Personal Injuries Resolution Board Act 2022 was enacted on 13 December 2022. The first phase of commencement of the provisions of the Act took effect on 13 February 2023.

The legislation enhances the role of the Board and represents a further step in the reform of the personal injuries framework in Ireland. It reforms the PIAB process in a number of ways which will have important implications for litigation practitioners.

This webinar will provide you with an overview of the changes introduced and assess their significance in day-to-day practice.

Course Syllabus

The webinar will address the following:

  • The new mediation process: what practitioners need to know.
  • The Board’s expanded remit to deal with claims which are wholly or partly psychological in nature.
  • The Board’s procedure for dealing with long-term injuries.
  • Costs and cost protection: what are the costs implications where a claimant brings proceedings following an assessment accepted by the respondent, but fails to recover an award higher than the assessment?
  • Fraud Prevention: how have the sanctions been strengthened for knowingly or recklessly providing false or misleading information in relation to an application?
