Or did you jump on that to try to be a smartarse?

I'm sure there's a perfectly good reason why nobody noticed the target of today's ire was speaking from Newry.

Get him out of the country and put him on a list banning him from returning (can you do that for someone who's technically served their time?).
It's not real punishment for him and it leaves Latvia with a violent individual free in their society, but it gets him away from Ireland.

I may be recalling this wrong, but haven't guys agreed to go home and when they got out reneged and claimed to have been wrongly advised,
Pretty sure a guy assaulted a girl on a bus took the deal and is still here, about 6 years ago it was.

Mr Justice Kearns's report on the cost of insurance makes interesting reading:

1: for settlements under €50k (at least 92% of all claims) awards here 4.4 times the UK.
2: for settlements under €100k, its 5 times
3: Claims get more expensive as the time drags on and the litigation gets going. The average for claims settled within a yeasr was €11,635. the average for 4+ years was €30,086. Direct quick settlement of a claim is the cheapest was to deal with it despite what Pearse Doherty says.

But Lawyers only have the best intentions of their clients on their minds, and the Irish people think the large awards are worth it - Ken Murphy.

It's not that shocking giving the Tories capped damages for whiplash which makes up the majority of claims.

Eh it is shocking who are you kidding. Giving tens of thousands for a sore neck is a scam - we know and you know it

If an artificially low cap was placed on damages in the UK, it stands to reason that damages in Ireland will be higher on average.

Have you considered that perhaps it is the UKs cap that is correct (and seeing that whiplash is not universally recognised as a medical condition throughout the EU, that is a more than valid argument), and the Irish that are incorrect ?

So you have no real argument then, as that is a truly stupid statement for a barrister to make.

Your entire argument has been "it's cheaper in England, ergo it's correct." That's it.

You missed my reference to other EU countries then ?

And I certainly think that if the only other major Common Law country in the EU thinks that whiplash pay outs need to be capped to reduce fraud, then we should be seriously considering doing the same.

Arguably it won't decrease fraud and may actually increase it (because insurers have less to pay out so are more likely to settle) but at least it'll reduce overall costs.

Which won't be passed on to the consumer[/AJ]

There is no "correct" or "incorrect". It just is. Its a massive contributor to the cost of insurance here versus the UK. In our favour, our frequency (claims per hundred policyholders) is lower which mitigates the difference. Their injury costs profile, our frequency = far cheaper cover. Simples.

Of course it just is.

The point is that people are trying to interfere for political reasons, largely based on the fact that they've allowed the insurance industry develop into (or turn back into) a cartel who are happily fúcking consumers rather than each other after their disastrous dalliance with competition.

Yeah, mad cartels up in the Law Library. Requiring people to be qualified before letting them work, mad stuff. Next they'll want doctors and accountants to be trained too.

Are you suggesting there’s fair and transparent entry to becoming a barrister? Fair and transparent access to the services of a barrister? Fair and transparent pricing? Come on give us a laugh.

That's just hysterical ranting with no factual basis. Your evidence for both of these allegations are simply that prices rose having fallen previously. There is no cartel. No one is f**king anyone. Not even your profession. We have decided its OK for minor injury to get major money, and we're paying the rate for that decision.

Isn't the European Commission currently investigating the insurance industry for cartel-like practices?

Very familiar with it. I'll be happy to say I was wrong and you're the greatest if it decides there was market collusion to fix prices. Not going to happen though.
