Civil traffic law

An essential part of civil traffic law is the settlement of claims following a traffic accident and we provide support in the context of claim adjustments of insurance companies. There are regular difficulties with the opponent’s liability insurance in the assertion of liability and with regard to individual damage items. We support our clients if relative objections are raised against the claims to which they are entitled.

As a participant in an accident, you may be exposed to material damage and/or personal injury.

Material damages may include repair costs, decrease in value, total loss, expert costs, loss of use and rental car costs. In principle, you can choose between different billing modalities (fictitious billing based on an expert opinion or concrete billing).

In turn, personal injuries include compensation for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and housekeeping damages.

The costs associated with our activities may be part of your claim for damages, so they will also be claimed against the other party’s liability insurance.In the event of an unjustified claim, we will also provide support in defending such claims.

Traffic criminal law and administrative offences law 

In addition to civil traffic law, we also assist you in the field of traffic criminal law and administrative offences law. 

 After a traffic accident, the police usually initiates fine or criminal proceedings against the person responsible for the accident. In particular, the following offences can be considered: drunk driving, endangerment of road traffic, coercion in road traffic, driving without a driving licence or unauthorised removal from the scene of the accident. 

 If there is no evidence for a criminal offence, a fine procedure may be considered. For example, in the case of violation of the right of way. A secondary consequence can be the entry of points in the driving suitability register or even a driving ban. 

Other examples of administrative offences that can be considered are speeding violations, red light violations or failure to observe the safety distance.
