PIAB will notify the other side, or more usually their Insurers, of the application. The other side has the option of consenting to the The PIAB Assessment Procedure, or of declining. If they decline, then The Board take no further part, and we will then issue Court Proceedings for your injuries, loss, damage and expense. If the other side consent to the The PIAB Assessment, then they will consider the medical reports furnished by both sides, and possible, (any independent reports commissioned, and it will produce a valuation of the claim, usually within 9 – 15 months.
There is no oral hearing. If you are willing to accept the Assessment and provided the other side are willing to pay it, then this is the end of the matter. However if either you or the other side does not accept the Assessment, then the claim will proceed under the former system of Court Litigation.
