An Overview Of Personal Injuries Litigation Since PIAB In 2003 & The Civil Liability and Courts Act, 2004

This webinar gives a broad outline of developments in Personal Injuries litigation since the commencement of the Personal Injuries Board Act, 2003 and the Civil Liability and Courts Act, 2004. The purpose of that legislation, and the associated media campaign against Personal Injuries litigation, was an effort to tackle insurance costs and insurance fraud and to change the way in which personal injury actions were processed. In this webinar Emmett O’Brien BL refers to some of the numerous High Court cases since 2004 that have interpreted the provisions of these Acts from the perspective of fraudulent and exaggerated claims. Topics covered also include:

  1. Detecting fraudulent claims
  2. The role of verifying affidavits in Personal Injuries litigation
  3. Court procedure and how to defend a case on behalf of an insurance company where a Plaintiff has engaged in fraud
  4. The role of An Garda Síochána in fraud cases
  5. Section 26 of the Civil Liability and Courts Act 2004 and the implications of the section on Personal Injuries litigation
  6. Low Impact cases and personal injuries.
