traffic law


Have you had a traffic accident and want to assert your claims effectively and comprehensively against the opposing liability insurance company?

Get legal advice. If the damage is not absolutely minor and the other party caused the accident, you can commission a lawyer to carry out the damage settlement.


The advantage is obvious: no damage item is forgotten and disputes about the extent of the damage and the enforcement of claims are clarified without any further effort for you. The possible damage positions are:

  • appraisal costs

  • housekeeping damage

  • treatment costs

  • rental car costs

  • loss of use

  • repair costs

  • personal injury compensation

  • loss of earnings

  • replacement cost

Immediately after the accident, the first thing to think about is securing the evidence. Except in minor cases, the police must be informed about the accident and called to the scene of the accident. Due to the damage reduction obligation of those involved in the accident, carefulness is required afterwards. It is important to note that not every accident damage may be repaired, since in the event of a total loss, only the replacement value will be reimbursed and higher repair costs can only be claimed in exceptional cases.

There are pitfalls lurking in the details of all damage positions, which sometimes lead to costs that you incur not being reimbursed. For example, rental car costs can only be reimbursed up to a certain vehicle class, which is why, to be on the safe side, you should inform the car rental company about the traffic accident and ask them to recommend a rental car, the costs of which will be reimbursed by the liability insurance without objection.

If you have any questions or problems in this context, legal advice is also recommended.
