Traffic offence lawyers

20 posts in this topic

I know there is a page on lawyers on Toytown, but most of them seem to be tax or business related. Can someone recommend a lawyer for car accidents? Basically have a friend who rolled into the back of a car. Both got out, agreed that everything is fine and no information was exchanged nor were police called. Now 10 days later, he got a letter from the insurance company saying he is getting sued for 1200 € worth of damage.

Hi

specialist law firms will be hard to find on the net as german law prevents them advertising except under special cases and they have to adhere to all sorts of standards. one English speaking firm I know of is

 

http://www.ra-blohberger.com/eng/index.htm

but they are more business and tax but if you contact Astrid she may be able to point you in the right direction for an english speaker that can deal with car damage.

 

As far as I know one of the best for car damage law is Dr Hintermayer und Kollegen Residenz 27 (behind the lions at Odeanz platz) telephone is 2199990, They represent some of the large car rental firms with claims. But this firm I dont think they speak English.

Sadly this is an all too familiar problem. I've fallen foul of this myself. I realise its too late for your friend but in future if any of you ever have an accident here, always call the police, even if it appears clear cut. There's a good reason you always see people stood around there cars, not moving them until the police come. Most people have a legal insurance here and some of them will try it on knowing it won't cost them anything.

Good lawyers normally aren't cheap. But it might help if you mentioned the area of expertise you were hoping to be covered by said cheap, good lawyer.

I know a very good lawyer in Munich. He helped me with important financial issues.

Great outcome.

 

He actually covers a few areas of the law itself.

Call him and see.

By the way he speaks English, thank God .

 

His name is Florian Mechnernich

You can find good. You might find cheap(er). You cannot find both in one. You need to be a bit more specific about what kind of lawyer you're looking for.

 

woof.

I'm in trouble with road traffic police.

 

I had a bit of an accident (wasn’t my fault), and now the police and the other party are after me...

 

To be honest I don't understand any of what’s going on as my German isn’t so great. So I really need a lawyer I can communicate well with

Call the consulate. Btw, the police should have told you you have this right, especially because you don´t speak German.

One of the duty of the consulate is to assist citizens in these cases.

Another advantge is everyone is careful when dealing with a foreign citizen represented by the consulate.

Good luck!! :)

recycling this old thread instead of creating a new one...

 

So I am in need of good a lawyer specializing in Traffic Laws for a damages claim. I have legal insurance. Any recommendation apart from the one's already advertised on TT?

 

Would be better to have a recommendation for Munich.

 

Thanks!

 

PS: From the recommendations above, none of them mentions traffic law in their expertise at their websites.

Ditto-ing D_J's post.

 

I bought a car from a dealer and its broken down within the guarantee period. The dealer has some issues itself and is not considering bearing the liability of his guarantee.

 

Can someone suggest an English speaking lawyer for this purpose based in the Laim/Hadern area, preferably.

So, I have had the exact same experience as the friend of the original poster. I basically rolled into the back of a car which came to a halt right behind me. The damage was so slight that it was barely visible. Both got out, exchanged insurance details. My insurer felt that the fair thing would be for the damage to be split between both parties and therefore paid them 1000 euros. However, I now have a court letter advising that I have 2 weeks to pay up an extra 1000 euros as the other party feel they should not have to pay towards the costs at all. I'm not sure how they can chase me up directly. Surely this should be between insurance companies. In any case, the details of a good traffic offence lawyer would be much appreciated. All the paperwork is in German which is double dutch to me.

To confuse the matters further, this happened in the north of Italy whilst we were all on vacation.

 

If i agree to pay the 1000 euros, would that increase my premiums by even more? is that seen by my insurer as me accepting full responsibility?

Leave it to your insurance to sort it out. In a case like this they will fight it out in court at their expense,  if necessary.

Don't do that! Immediately contact your insurance and send them the letter, THEY need to sort that out!

He was too close. I thought a back ender was always the fault of the guy behind unless you re in reverse gear.  

 

Logically, if you make a claim your premiums will increase. Bummer.

You would have thought that the driver behind was always guilty when he hits the vehicle in front, but there are judgements where the driver in front was held guilty, at least in part. Many other opinions are available.

..

I was very pleased to read that someone was prosecuted for showing a 'Stinkefinger' to officers doing speed checks. He was fined several thousand €uros😃
