Making a claim

If you have suffered an injury and believe you are entitled to compensation, you can submit a claim to PIAB.  This page aims to provide you with information on how to do that.

A claim can be made following six clear and simple steps - laid out at this link

You can make a claim either using our online form or using the print paper claim forms here.

The PIAB process involves following clear and simple steps, commencing with filling out a claim application online or completing and sending a paper claim form to us by post along with a copy of your medical report and processing fee. 

(This website also provides information on how to make a claim As Gaeilge, or through other languages and links to that information are here.)

The fee for applications which use paper or email is €90.  The fee for using the online form is €45.

This PIAB process also involves us notifying the respondent (the person or organisation who you are making a claim against, or their insurers).

PIAB may also arrange to have an independent medical examination carried out before making an assessment of your claim.
