Insurance law

Life is full of unforeseen events and that’s why it’s essential to protect yourself by taking out insurance in the event of a sinister, an accident or loss of property. For even more security, you may have also took out life insurance as well as travel insurance while traveling.

But while you’ve taken the trouble to protect yourself in the best possible way, sometimes it can be difficult to get the right compensation from your insurer.

In fact, if you have damage or personal insurance coverage, you have suffered a loss and your insurance refuses to compensate you, our lawyers can help you for the insurance claim.

Insurance contracts are sometimes complex in their interpretation, consult us for a legal opinion as to the extent of your coverage.

Civil liability or public liability

Each and every one of us, natural and legal persons, has an obligation to repair  the damage that we cause to others through our fault. This fault can result from a voluntary act,  negligence or from an omission.

In addition, the responsibility of a person can be recognized by the autonomous fact of a property (object, animal, etc.) in his care or another person under his supervision like an employee or a child.

If you have been the victim of an accident which caused you physical or psychological injuries due to the fault of another person, company or individual, you may be entitled to receive monetary compensation for your damage!

Does this accident deprive you of living a normal life? Did you miss work days? Do you have to pay for medical treatment? You may be entitled to receive compensation!
