Is it teething time for your little one?
 
As Mum-in-Residence for MummyPages.ie, I am often asked to review mobile apps, so I can test their ease of use and relevance to mum and the family. While I hope that nobody in or connected to the MummyPages community has the bad fortune to experience personal injury, unfortunately it does happen. 
 
If it happens to you or a member of your family, it is reassuring that the Injuries Board – a government body that makes personal injury awards – is there to help you find appropriate compensation for your situation if you intend to make a personal injury claim.   
 
The Injuries Board mobile app, now available for iPhone and Android, is particularly useful for those who may have experienced an injury and are unsure of their entitlement to compensation. The very fact that it is an app on a mobile device makes it more accessible to the wider population and takes away some of the perceived barriers in trying to make a claim yourself. 
 
The Frequently Asked Questions section is very effective in informing users what they may or may not be entitled to in a very logical and plain-English manner - no legal speak here! 
 
The Estimator tool gives you a map of the human body and indicates a potential level of compensation depending on the nature of and likely recovery time following the injury. This dynamic feature of the app is particularly useful for illustrating the varying levels of claims, information that would be very helpful for somebody who intends to make a personal injury claim.
