All Personal Injury cases must initially be lodged with the Injuries Board. At the outset the Respondent may decline to have the matter adjudicated by the Injuries Board and if this happens, the next step is to bring Civil Proceedings in the Circuit or High Court. In the event that the Respondent (the person who is responsible for your injuries) does not decline to have the matter assessed, then the Injuries Board will examine your application and accompanying Medical Report before issuing an Assessment of the compensation due in respect of the loss or harm suffered.
At the end of the process the Respondent and/or the Applicant has an opportunity to accept or reject the Assessment. If the Assessment is rejected, the Injuries Board will issue an Authorisation, which allows the matter to dealt with by way of Personal Injuries Summons in the Circuit or High Court.
