Personal Injuries Assessment Board make 258 awards in Kerry

The Personal Injuries Assessment Board made 258 awards in Kerry in one year.

The board revealed the total number of motor, employer, and public liability awards paid out in 2015 in the Kingdom came to 258.

Jonathan Hehir, who’s the Managing Director of insurance brokers, the CFM Group, says while most of these claims would be genuine, if even a fraction were false, then businesses in Kerry could suffer, and their livelihoods could be in trouble.

He’s calling on the government to speed up the establishment of the insurance claims register to stop so called ‘trip and trick claimants’ and other professional fraudsters.
