Who We Are

PIAB Liaison Unit

The establishment of the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) was one of the key initiatives in reforming the process of the delivery of compensation in personal injury cases.

It has resulted in a significant reduction in both the timeframe for delivery of an award and the costs involved in delivery.

The PIAB Liaison Unit has responsibility for policy relating to and liaison with PIAB.

The Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) was established on the 13th of April 2004 pursuant to the Personal Injuries Assessment Act 2003, as part of the Government’s insurance reform programme.

PIAB can be reached by calling 1890 829 121 (NI/UK 0870 8768121, overseas +353 23 8832826) from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, by email at enquiries@injuriesboard.ie, by post to InjuriesBoard.ie, PO Box 8, Clonakilty, Co. Cork or by fax on 1890 829 122.
