Road accidents, collisions, bumps – these happen to us every day, but often through no fault of our own. What should you do in this situation? Have you experienced a traffic damage? Has the insurer understated your compensation? A common practice among insurers is lowering the amount of claims paid out.

STAGES OF WINDING-UP PROCEEDINGS (PERSONAL INJURY):

I The initiation of proceedings by submitting a claim to the Insurer of the perpetrator. It is necessary to have at least the registration number of the vehicle, which caused the traffic incident. In order to complete the relevant application, it is necessary to obtain a set of complete documentation indicated in the statement above. In a situation when the perpetrator of the event is not known or does not have the compulsory third party liability insurance, we can also initiate the claim settlement, by registering your claim to the Insurance Guarantee Fund.

II The Insurer’s decision endorses the payment or refusal of compensation/damages. If the decision is positive, it usually comes to the payment of the so-called “undisputed amount”, whose sum is significantly undervalued in relation to our claim and often does not reflect the real damage, although nothing stands in the way of applying for further funds.

III Lodging an appeal to the Insurer in relation to the issued decision. At this stage, it is needed to gather further medical documents and possibly further documents from the criminal proceedings, which would constitute an additional argument and confirm the need for further treatment of the affected person. Sometimes the affected person is undergoing treatment, which continues for many years, therefore, they should be informed that it is needed to systematically sent us these documents and report about the need for continued treatment.

IV Another decision is issued, under which the Insurer once again responds to our appeal and decides whether it is possible to grant additional funds or not, or whether he maintains the decision to refuse compensation/damages.

V Alternatively, you may receive the possibility to move on to settlement negotiations at the stage of arbitration proceedings, which resulted in the simultaneous consent of the Insurer and the concerned Affected Person to sign the agreement and pay the agreed amount of funds on behalf of the Affected Person.

VI In the absence of a proposal, or an agreement on amicable settlement, the possible further action is sending further medical documents indicating the deterioration of health condition or payment of funds for reimbursement of travel costs to medical facilities, etc. or bringing proceedings to the court.

STAGES OF WINDING-UP PROCEEDINGS (PROPERTY DAMAGE):

I The initiation of proceedings by submitting a claim to the Insurer of the perpetrator. It is necessary to have at least the registration number of the vehicle, which caused the traffic incident. In order to complete the relevant application, it is necessary to obtain a set of complete documentation indicated in the statement above. In a situation when the perpetrator of the event is not known or does not have the compulsory third party liability insurance, we can also initiate the claim settlement, by registering your claim to the Insurance Guarantee Fund.

II The Insurer’s decision endorses the payment or refusal of compensation. If the decision is positive, it usually comes to the payment of funds in the amount determined by the Insurer on the basis of their expert’s opinion.

III In a situation when the amount paid is too low and does not fully compensate for the damage, we lodge an appeal to the Insurer referring to the calculation of repair costs.

IV Another decision is issued, under which the Insurer once again responds to our appeal and decides whether it is possible to grant additional funds or not, or whether he maintains the decision to refuse compensation.

V Alternatively, you may receive the possibility to move on to settlement negotiations, yet in property matters this stage is not a standard.

VI In the absence of a proposal, or an agreement on amicable settlement, the possible further action is bringing proceedings to the court.
