Many hard-pressed charities, voluntary and community groups, sports and cultural organisations, motorists and SMEs are     .

    Examples of minor injuries that remain way too high following the Judicial Council review include:
  1. Minor thumb injury (no sprain, no breakage). Was €21,200 reduced to €12,000 (-43%) . Currently €4,582 in England & Wales
  2. Back. Minor, full recovery expected. Was €18,400. Now €12,000 (-35%). Currently €7,605 in England & Wales
