A 2018 report by the Personal Injuries Commission found the average amount paid out in Ireland for whiplash injuries was 4.4 times higher than in England and Wales.

Golf gate is the best thing to 'ever' happen to Ireland.

Not because it really mattered, that there was anything wrong, or anything untoward at all happened - it was all fine and nothing wrong with it to be honest..

It's because finally the Marie-Antoinette of Irish life, the judiciary, felt the red hot poker coming for their jacksies. Keep acting like dictators ignoring the political, legislative and public outrage and you can get one right up your hole too!

Once accountability was added to the list of concerns for these fckers they moved - it was only when they for the first time ever had accountability though....

I keep extensive dossiers on all of you that contain all the real world info i have gleaned over the years. For example, your real name Gary "Gunty" McGinnan, 16 years old from Lucan and, unknown to many, are the person behind the notorious Lucan Letch, a peeping tom known to wear oul wans bloomers while watching the yummy mummies at the local yoga breast feeding class

By setting it at a reasonable amount for genuine cases. Unfortunately this would damage the viability of the ambulance chasers business model

They introduced legislation that capped damages for whiplash only.

So the exact same symptoms would be compensated differently depending on what part of the body suffered.

How did you get it?

Neck snapped back in an accident

Sounds like the exact symptom as whiplash but given it's in your foot, we're good to go

Or somebody suffers a bad injury to their knee because of a car accident and is compensated at the par value but somebody suffering a bad injury to their back receives less compensation for injuries that interfere with their life to the same degree.

Whiplash sounds much scarier and violent. As if your head is attached to your body by a coiled spring. A sore neck doesn’t elicit the same emotion.

This is the problem.

Let's put aside tax, you've clearly not practiced. Nothing wrong with that either, but you've clearly spent fúck all time doing anything even approximating litigation.

You clearly understand very little about PI either, because you're still parroting lines that the Central Bank has very belatedly had to acknowledge were false.

The link between premium levels and damages has been demonstrated on a number of occasions to be tenuous at best. Most noticeably, for several years premium levels skyrocketed with no commensurate increase in the number of claims, the amounts paid out or the cost of claims.

Indeed, it emerged that the cost of claims has fallen.

I'd link to think that somebody with three degrees would be able to work out that when the cost of insuring risk goes down and the price of insurance goes up that the problem isn't the risk.

I like that you're trying to place the argument on a moral level rather than a factual one. It must be awkward when the numbers are so unfavourable, I suppose.

The villains in this story have always been the insurers. Every decade or so they start blaming the lawyers and every decade or so gullible idiots like yourself fall for it.

What reforms are you suggesting the judiciary resisted?

They don't make the law.

They're not behind the review of the book of quantum either.

Saying a small reduction in claims from a shitload is still a shitload is just you limping away with your tail between your legs. There was no increase in their cost of business and a massive increase in the price they charged consumers. It's that simple.

They tried to pull a fast one and people fell for it and are now too embarrassed to admit they were hoodwinked.

Competition is a factor yes. But why do you think that there are so few additional entrants to the Irish market? Could it be because payouts are massive comparatively to other jurisdictions?
A small reduction in claims from a shit load is still a shit load.
Why sell car insurance in Ireland where whiplash, the apparent popular example, costs roll a dice to decide how many multiples of 10k you get when you can sell in France. Where you get....

It all comes back to the intransigence of the judiciary and the chronically slow pace they adopt reforms. How long has this current review of the book of quantum been ongoing?
What reforms are you suggesting the judiciary resisted?

They don't make the law.

They're not behind the review of the book of quantum either.

Saying a small reduction in claims from a shitload is still a shitload is just you limping away with your tail between your legs. There was no increase in their cost of business and a massive increase in the price they charged consumers. It's that simple.

They tried to pull a fast one and people fell for it and are now too embarrassed to admit they were hoodwinked.
What year did quinn insurance collapse and when were their policy holders bailed out by the other insurers?

Not the point I was making.

The rest of the insurance industry had to pitch in to rescue the policy holders.
The year you quoted above was when the bulk of this started to hit the financial results of these other insurers.

Its another reason why policies costs have been increasing. Your assessment is rather simplistic. 'Insurance companies bad' while great to the ears of SF esque populists does not encompass the full scale of the issues.

Cost of doing business in Ireland is high and Ireland is a small market. As a result its difficult to attract multinationals to Ireland to deliver products that require specific Irish compliance (you see this with banks insurance companies etc). Compliance costs are usually standard enough if you sell to 60m or 5m. Adding to that is that Irish handouts by judges are the largest in Europe. Unless you want to cut compliance costs - which inevitably results in more shit hitting the fan - to attract business in youre going to have to cut costs. Handouts are by far the biggest component of this.


I went more granular in the explanation than the initial post above as the laughing smiley says you appear to not have grasped the point.

You're again claiming something occurred to increase policy costs.

What was it?

When did it happen?

How much did policy costs rise by?

What was the cause of that?

No matter how hard you try and indulge in sophistry, you cannot point to the cost of claims, be it legal or payouts going up to such a level that the insurers had to raise premium levels.

It's really not difficult.

If the problem was increased costs, you'd be able to point out when the costs went up and by how much. That you can't says it all.

The insurance company fúcked up by being overly reliant on the construction boom to fuel profits generated by investing premium money. They then needed to increase premium levels to restore and then increase profitability. Nothing else. The cost of claims was going down at the same time.
