Piab Injuries Board – not in use
People get very confused about the Personal Injuries Board when they come to submit a claim. They think that it is just like dealing with a Personal Injury Lawyer and that all they have to do is fill in the forms and send it off and all will be straight forward.
Why use a Lawyer?
When you use the Piab there are a multitude of facts and information that you need to find out and that you need to take into consideration. Who do you claim against? The Personal Injury Board will not advise you on who you are to claim against. This sounds very unusual but unless you get it exactly right in the naming of the defendant for example this will result in delay and possibly the barring of your claim due to it being out of time. Again a Lawyer firm like Baggot Law will get this right for you. What are the Statutory Time limits?
