PIAB To Deal With Medical Negligence?

The Department of Health is exploring a proposal which would enable the Personal Injuries Assessment board (PIAB) to deal with claims for injuries arising from medical negligence. The current system excludes such claims which are dealt with through the courts. PIAB was set up in 2004 to deal with compensation claims for persons injured at work or on the roads.
