Traffic Accident Handling

A traffic accident that you did not cause, a damaged car and perhaps even a bodily injury as a result of the accident – an incident that in itself is annoying and painful enough can often be followed by a real war of nerves against the insurance company of the other party involved in the accident during the subsequent insurance claim settlement.

Although insurance companies of the other party often contact the aggrieved party shortly after an accident, you need to know that they do not act out of charity.

The prime objective of insurance companies is actually to save as much money as possible during the claim settlement. Those who have no law background and try to handle the claim settlement themselves often run the risk of throwing away real money.

Victims of a traffic accident should therefore always employ a lawyer who will deal with the insurance company on an equal footing.

Accident claim settlement involves not only compensation for the repair costs or the purchase of a replacement vehicle in the case of a write-off but also in specific cases many other compensation items that a legally inexperienced victim can easily overlook.

These include:

  • Rental car costs
  • Compensation for loss of vehicle use
  • Surveyor costs
  • Reduced market value
  • General flat-rate cost
  • Towing/recovery costs
  • Damaged vehicle parking costs
  • Compensation for injuries suffered
  • Therapy costs
  • Housekeeping costs
  • Loss of earning capacity

and much more.

Compensation for lawyer fees can also be claimed if the accident was caused by the other party!
