Personal Injury Claims in Spain

Filed under : Personal Injury in Spain

We frequently receive enquires at our offices regarding falls that our clients have suffered and the possibility of making a personal injury claim. Our answer is always the same: it depends where the fall has occurred.

If the fall happened in a street or a public place, then the responsible party would be the corresponding Town Hall. In this case, the victim should be aware that there is a special procedure to claim against the public authorities and that it is very difficult to obtain compensation. In any case, at De Cotta, we have obtained favourable judgments in different parts of Spain and we can provide you with advice before taking any action.

The most common claims are in relation to falls in establishments open to the public.  Our experience in these types of claims against well-known supermarket chains or building material warehouses, allows us to provide our client with a complete legal opinion. At De Cotta, we can deal with your claims for falls, from start to finish, calculating the amount to be claimed, negotiating a settlement with the insurance company and if necessary, start legal proceedings to claim the corresponding compensation.

If you find yourself in any of the above situations, please do not hesitate to contact us on [email protected] or by telephone on 951 315 161
