Decrease In Motor Insurance Claims In The Midlands

The Motor Insurance Bureau Of Ireland is behind the figures.

The number of motor insurance claims in the Midlands decreased by 9% in 2019. 

Figures from the Motor Insurance Bureau of Ireland highlight the increase in claims by uninsured drivers nationally. 

The drop in claims comes solely in Laois.

Where there was 40% less drivers seeking assistance last year.

Conversely submissions from Westmeath were up by nine on 2018 figures. 

That's a jump of 30%. 

The number of claimants remained unchanged in Offaly leaving the total number in the Midlands at 89. 

Down from 97 the year before. 

Nationally - the total was more than 2,500. 

7 in 10 of those were made by uninsured drivers. 

The figures come as Gardai introduce a new recognition system to help them detect those without cover in the Midlands.
