Settlement of international claims

Settlement of personal injury and property damage claims

With over 30 years of professional experience in providing legal assistance to accident victims and surviving dependents, our specialized team of lawyers is committed to enforcing the rights of those affected in all types of accidents (road traffic, airplane, ship, rail) at home and abroad.

In this context, it is important to us to provide quick and unbureaucratic support to the injured parties in order to limit the hardship suffered through targeted relief measures.

In cross-border cases, we identify for our clients the right contact person at the insurance company of the damaging party as a negotiating partner and also advise with regard to a possible determination of the most favorable place of jurisdiction. For example, the compensation for pain and suffering in the case of an accident in Italy may be significantly higher if it is also claimed in Italy and not in Germany - for example via the claim’s representative of the insurance company.
