Dr. Neil Walker, Ibec Head of Infrastructure said: “Ibec’s preference has consistently been for the insurance cost crisis facing thousands to be resolved by the Judicial Council swiftly and voluntarily adopting new awards guidance in line with the 2018 report of the Personal Injuries Commission (PIC). We confirmed this in our submission to the Law Reform Commission last year, indicating our willingness to allow a reasonable period for the Council’s Personal Injuries Guidelines Committee to proceed with its work on replacing the current Book of Quantum.

“去年12月,委员会的报告草案被分发了考虑。安理会自此以来有十周才能考虑它。IBEC没有看到报告,但我们希望并期望在各种轻微的身体伤害,包括软组织鞭打,在奖项中减少高达75%的奖励。事实证明,采用的提案略微缺乏PIC的建议,我们将继续按下进一步减少。但如果缺口是实质性的或最糟糕的情况 - 经修订的指导完全被拒绝,然后呼吁“第二次最佳”方法,即奖励水平的法定章程可能会变得压倒。“
