Factors that Influence Personal Injury Settlements & Awards in Ireland:
The Book of Quantum

The Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) introduced the Book of Quantum. It lists many of the most common types of injury and allocates a value based on the severity of the injury and how long it may take to heal.

The Book of Quantum is more of a guide than anything else.

Age & Gender

The Book of Quantum does not address age or gender, and so particular regard will be had to your age, and how the injury may impact someone of your gender, for example, a permanent scar.

Psychological Injury

Injuries often go beyond physical injuries to your body, and so consideration will be given to any ongoing emotional trauma or distress.

Family Circumstances

Personal injury awards must recognise the particular needs of the injured party. For example a single parent looking after a family will have greater responsibility, and financial expense than a person who has no dependents, living at home with his or her parents.

Loss of Amenity

Seeks to address a deterioration in your quality of life, whether that is participating in a hobby, going dancing or attending local football matches.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is responsible for my personal injury?

    Who is responsible for your personal injury will depend on how the accident happened. If your injury was sustained in a road traffic accident, the driver who caused the accident will be responsible and we will seek damages from their insurance company. If your injury was sustained in a public place it may be the owner of a property or a government body who will become the mark. If your injury was sustained at the workplace due to the negligence of an employer or colleague, it will most likely be your employer who is responsible and we will seek damages from their insurer.

    Every accident has different elements to it, and because of that, no two cases are identical. The process of getting the best result in a personal injury case may differ according to the unique circumstances of the case. We at Personal Injury Solicitors Dublin specialise in getting the best result for you.

    What am I entitled to as a result of my injury?

    Your entitlements resulting from a personal injury will depend on the circumstances surrounding the accident, and the losses suffered. You may be entitled to loss of earnings if you have been absent from work as a result of the accident. You may also be entitled to general damages as a result of pain and suffering as well as out of pocket expenses. Many factors influence the outcome, such as:

    •  Your age
    • Whether you were partially at fault
    • The nature and extent of your injuries
    •  The nature and extent of your losses
    • Other involved parties

    How long will my personal injury claim take?

    Every personal injury claim is different and lots of factors will determine how quickly Personal Injury Solicitors Dublin can bring your case to a conclusion. Factors can include things like -  if the fault of your accident is disputed, or if court proceedings are necessary to resolve the issues in your case and the nature and complexity of the personal injury suffered will dictate how long a case takes.
