Insurers Loose €17.0m

Insurance Ireland disclosed insurers lost €17.0m on Employers Liability Insurance Cover in 2014. These facts came to light after the Injuries Board mid year review confirmed an increase in employer liability and public liability insurance claims.

The number of employer liability claims in 2014 was recorded at 6,847 while public liability claims for the same period were recorded at 14,821 claims. These figures come in the wake of considerable media coverage and an increase in general motor insurance premiums
