Personal injuries actions in Dublin
From Tuesday 2 February 2021, the High Court will be in a position to list a number of personal injuries cases each day to be heard remotely using the Pexip platform.
Listing by consent
Personal Injuries actions will only be listed for a remote hearing if the consent of both parties has been notified to the Court at a callover of the cases for the following week, which will take place on the preceding Wednesday. Depending on demand, the Court will list up to four such cases each day, with priority to be given to cases already fixed for hearing in the Hilary Term.
Further information, including practitioner requirements, is available in a notice published on the Courts Service website.
