Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality

Access to Justice and Legal Costs: Discussion (Resumed)

Mr. Gerry Hassett:

I am not 100% sure of that. We have seen significant inflation in that area in the past number of years. For example, the report from the National Claims Information Database, NCID, shows a drift from €31,000 to an average of €47,000, which is approximately 40%. I am not 100% sure why that is, but I know it seems to be a fact.
