There were just over 1500 awards made in PI cases in 2022

The number of new personal injury cases lodged in the High Court and Circuit Court last year was down 17% on 2021, according to the Courts Service Annual Report.

It comes following new guidelines compiled by the country's judges that came into force last year.

There were just over 1,500 awards made in PI cases in 2022 down from just over 2,000 in 2021.

The value of such awards fell by €36 million – from €307 million to €271 million in the same period.

The number of applications for possession of property increased last year after restrictions implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic were lifted.

There were 837 new possession applications to the Circuit Court – an increase of 73% on 2021.

However, the Courts Service says last year’s figure is still 25% lower than 2019 – before the pandemic.
