The Injuries Board Ireland figures for 2009 reveal that 25,919 new injury claims were made, an increase of 5% on 2008. There were 8,645 claims settled in 2009 for the amount offered by Injuries Board Ireland. The difference between the high volume of applications and and the comparatively small number of settlements is normal because only about 20% of claims are settled for the amount offered by the Injuries Board (the rest are settled before an offer is made, go directly to Court, or are rejected as too low).
The total value of the award offers that were accepted was over €200 million, averaging €23,163 per award.
