Personal Injury

It is a fact of life that accidents happen. Unfortunately, the resulting injuries can not only impact your health and quality of life but also create financial worries if your earnings are affected. RDT Abogados handle many cases of personal injury in Spain.

The injuries arising from an accident and the compensation a person can be entitled to are circumstances very difficult to assess.

This is even more complicated if you do have an accident in Spain, with a different language and legal system.

I had an accident during my holiday in Spain; can I claim compensation for personal injury?

If you’ve been injured in an accident on the road, in your accommodation, in the street or in any circumstance whilst in Spain and it wasn’t your fault, it is your right to claim for personal injury.

However, it is necessary to review case by case, as an important point is that the liabilities in Spain are regulated very differently to those in Anglo Saxon jurisdictions.

What about traffic accidents? Can you assist with these too?

Yes, very much so. Road accidents in Spain, as much as everywhere else, are regulated by a very strict system of the minimum insurance requirements for driving.

It is very important that a solicitor is called as soon as possible. The solicitors who specialise in these matters will request the traffic and medical report, and will promptly contact the insurer of the car and / or driver which caused the accident.

Quick action is paramount to protect the rights of any injured party and secure fair compensation.

Our legal experts can pursue your claim and achieve the maximum compensation award, in recognition of both your injuries and for your financial losses.

In general, how much compensation can I ask for following an accident, is there a formula?

It is very difficult, somewhat impossible; to give even an estimate of the compensation someone can claim after an accident.

This will depend on many factors, starting with the actual circumstances of the accident or negligence and its relation with the damages / injuries.

Also, it is necessary to take into consideration the sequence of events, and then put these in relation with the personal circumstances of the injured person.
