Before signing a contract with a potential client, we will give a non-paid legal advice and we will assess if the limitation periods under the polish civil law were not exceeded. Polish civil law sets up various time limits for personal claim litigation. A limitation period will commence at the time that the damage was suffered by the claimant (time of accident) and generally it is 3 years. If the damage was done by a criminal act than the limitation period is 20 years. If claimant is a child than the limitation period is extended till the claimant reaches 20 years old.

In some cases our lawyers will evaluate contributory negligence (passenger of vehicle driven by a drunk driver, crossing a road in non marked foot crossing, driving without seatbelts fastened).
On behalf of our clients we negotiate with an insurer or a person causing damage the highest sum of damages. We represent claimants in front of polish courts. Our personal injury lawyers know how to act if the person who caused the accident or his vehicle were not insured.

The lump sum of paid property damages by insurer is lowered very often. Our property damage lawyers will fight for much larger sum of damages. It is common that the insurer propose low damage due to lowered appraisal report (i.e. lowered value of vehicle, lowered number of man-hours for repair, depreciation rates of car parts). Sometimes the car hire costs are not accepted or you get the towing cost refusal. We solve your problems. Even if your car is leased – we get you a compensation of your property damages.

WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS
According to polish civil code the surviving close relatives have the right to compensation from the person whose negligence caused the death or from the third party insurer.
The aim of the compensation is to compensate the noneconomic and economical damages.
The types of noneconomic compensation available due to wrongful death claims include compensation for loss of care, emotional suffering and grievance, loss of guidance and companionship.
The relatives can also claim economic damages reimbursing costs of funeral and burial expenses, giving deceased a financial support or compensating lost support until the child reaches adulthood and reimbursing other financial losses that the estate experienced as a result of their loved one’s death.
Apart from the above claims our lawyers will fight for punitive damages which are intended to punish the wrongdoer rather than to compensate for a loss.
The polish civil code limits the categories of people who can claim wrongful death damages. Literally it says that entitled are only members of close family. It means: children, spouses, parents, grandchildren, grandparents and siblings.
Analysis of emotional bonds with deceased brings up the answer if a life partner, stepmother or stepfather can be also entitled to successful wrongful death claim. The wrongful death claim can be transferred on to the successor if the responsible for death or its insurer were sued prior to decedent death.
Prowadzimy także sprawy Klientów, którzy zostali poszkodowani przez działanie osób niepełnoletnich (np. potrącenie przez nieletniego rowerzystę).
Pamiętamy, że zgodnie z orzecznictwem Sądu Najwyższego, zadośćuczynienie musi stanowić ekonomicznie odczuwalną wartość majątkową, aczkolwiek nie może stanowić źródła nadmiernego wzbogacenia osoby poszkodowanej.
Przed podjęciem się sprawy nieodpłatnie udzielimy konsultacji prawnej i ocenimy, czy roszczenie o odszkodowanie nie uległo przedawnieniu oraz określimy krąg podmiotów odpowiedzialnych za powstanie szkody. Wykształcenie medyczne mec. Aleksandra Stala, na podstawie przedstawionej przez Klienta dokumentacji medycznej, pozwala we właściwy sposób ocenić wielkość procentowego uszczerbku na zdrowiu osoby poszkodowanej. Jest to niezbędny element do prawidłowego oszacowania wysokości możliwego do uzyskania zadośćuczynienia i odszkodowania. W szczególnych sprawach ustalimy, czy w sprawie zachodzą przesłanki do ustalenia przyczynienia się poszkodowanego do szkody (np. przyczynienie przez poruszanie się z nietrzeźwym kierowcą, przyczynienie przez spożywanie alkoholu z nietrzeźwym kierowcą, przyczynienie przez przechodzenie przez jezdnię w miejscu niedozwolonym).
Reprezentujemy Klientów zarówno na etapie negocjacji z Ubezpieczycielem lub bezpośrednim sprawcą szkody, a także przed Sądem. Co ważne, wiemy jak właściwie prowadzić sprawy, w których osoba odpowiedzialna za zdarzenie nie miała ubezpieczenia, nawet jeśli było to ubezpieczenie obowiązkowe (odszkodowanie z UFG).
