Personal Injury Law Updates in 2017


   Speaker: Pamela Keegan B.L.                                   2.5 GROUP STUDY POINTS



This seminar will consider:


1)      Updates re: legislation for periodic payments

The Civil Liability (Amendment) Bill 2017 has finally reached report stage in the Seanad and this seminar will review the provisions of the Bill and consider how it will impact PI cases in all courts.


 2)      The Supreme Court ruling on The Law Society –v- the MIBI  (Setanta case)

Both the High Court and the Court of Appeal have held that it is the MBI and not the Insurance Compensation Fund that should pay the claims arising from the liquidated Setanta Insurance Company Limited. The Supreme Court has now heard the MIBI’s appeal but what will its ruling be and why?


3)      An overview of High Court, Court of Appeal and Circuit Court cases in 2017

This seminar will consider the judiciary’s current attitude to personal injury claims and the level of general damages from the Circuit Court up.


 4)      The new Personal Injuries Commission
