PERSONAL INJURIES UPDATES IN 2018Book Now

         

   SPEAKER:  PAMELA KEEGAN B.L            2.5 GROUP STUDY POINTS

 

In addition to the pressure that has been put on the Irish Government in recent years to finally legislate for catastrophic injury cases by way of periodic payments, there has also been much media spotlight and criticism of the size of awards made by the Irish Courts in personal injury actions over the last decade or so.  On foot of this, the Personal Injuries Commission was established in 2017 and its first report issued in December 2017. During 2018, it has worked on establishing a high-level benchmarking of international awards for personal injury claims against what occurs in Ireland and the Commission will explore this and indeed recommendations for the industry in its next paper, which is expected later this year. Accordingly, this lecture will consider and discuss:

 

The Personal Injury Commission - it's reports and recommendations for the   

     transformation of the personal injury claims process in Ireland 

 

New rules for insurers

 

Updates in Personal Injury case-law, including fraudulent claims

 

The Civil Liability (Amendment) Act 2017 - introducing periodic payments

     leglislation
