The Irish Claims Authority is the independent provider in Ireland of assessments and information relating to claims. We provide high quality, relevant and up to date information on all types of claims for compensation from product liability to road accidents. We hope that through the provision of such information the public will be made fully aware of their legal entitlements to obtain compensation.
The Irish Claims Authority provide a panel of human experts who can assess cases on merit and quantum. We do not charge for this service. They are on hand to provide you with a detailed assessment of your case regardless of type, including whether the circumstances give rise to a viable claim and also the level of damages you should expect to receive. This is a service provided to the public free of charge. If you case involves an injury, or experts can arrange for a full submission to the Injuries Board or in other cases to the Irish Courts Directly.
We also provide an automated online claims calculator (specifically related to personal injury claims in Ireland however). This tool can show how much you can claim and the amounts of personal injury awards, should it be assessed by the Personal Injuries Assessment Board following an accident. Our claims calculator uses the most up to date Personal Injuries Guidelines which replaced the old Book of Quantum.
