What is compensation?
Were you involved in an accident for which you are not liable? As a victim, you are entitled to compensation. The party responsible for the accident must compensate your (physical) damage. But how exactly is this damage calculated? A lawyer will guide you through the process of expert assessments and calculate correct compensation.
Did you cause an accident yourself and are therefore liable? A lawyer will then check for you whether the insurance will intervene in your situation. He is biased and only represents your interests.
