The Injuries Board received over 17,000 new claims in the first six months of the year.
According to a mid-year review, that is an increase of 7% on the same period last year.
Motor claims are up 6%, workplace claims are up 8.5% and claims for accidents in public places have increased by nearly 9%.
The average compensation award for the first six months of 2015 is €22,375, the board also made 5,741 awards for compensation to the value of €128.45m.
Figures released by the board also reveal the average waiting time needed to process and award was about seven months.
Interim CEO of the Injuries Board Maurice Priestly described the increases as “modest”.
“It is not surprising that there has been a modest increase in claims volumes year to date given the general economic upturn with more people at work and a lot more vehicles on the road,” said Priestly.
“Greater economic activity would be expected to generate greater numbers of policies and premium income for insurers.”
