Personal Injuries Board – The Estimator

What Compensation Should I Expect to Receive?

The Injuries Board has prepared an estimator which is intended to provide injury victims with guidelines in relation to the value of their injury claim. Each case, however, is considered on its own merits which take into account the individual circumstances of each injury victim such as age, occupation, severity of the injury, the impact of the injury and the prognosis for recovery. The estimator set out below is a visual display of the information contained in the book of quantum prepared by the Injuries Board. This is not to be taken as a definitive guarantee of this level of compensation in each and every case.

In addition, claimants can also claim for out of pocket expenses such as medical expenses, vehicle damage, costs and loss of earnings. In more serious cases there can also be future loss of earnings and medical claims.

For advice in relation to what compensation you should expect to receive please contact Vincent, personal injuries Solicitor, at +353-1-84017800 or simply email him at vincent@shannons.ie
