Changes to Monetary Jurisdictions in Personal Injury and Other Matters.

There have been key changes to the monetary jurisdictions of the Courts of recent,  which any claimants/plaintiffs should be aware of.

Formerly any matter over circa €6000 would be dealt with in the Circuit Court, that has now changed to €15,000.
Formerly any matter over circa €38,000 would be dealt with in the High Court , this has now been increased to €60,000 in Personal Injury Matters and €75,000 in non Personal Injury Matters.

The full breakdown is as below. 
The changes to the monetary jurisdictions of the civil courts provided for in section 2(1) and part 3 of the Courts and Civil Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2013 took effect on 3 February 2014.
From that date, the new limits of the civil jurisdictions will be:
  • District Court – €15,000,
  • Circuit Court in civil proceedings other than personal injury actions – €75,000,
  • Circuit Court for personal injury actions as defined in section 2 of the Civil Liability and Courts Act 2004 – €60,000.
