Judicial council formally adopt the personal injuries guidelines. This is seen by many as the most significant development in the area of the quantification of damages in personal injuries claims in Ireland since the publication of the original Book of Quantum in 2004 and it is expected that the Guidelines will alter the landscape for personal injuries claims in Ireland not only in relation to the level of awards but also in the practice of litigation.
Adopted by the Judicial Council on 6th March 2021, these long-awaited Judicial Council guidelines on general damages in personal injury claims will come into effect once S.99 of the Judicial Council Act 2019 (“The Act”) has been commenced and at the latest by 01 August 2021.
