Are you a victim of a car accident?

Driver victims or drivers at fault, simple car passengers, or truck passengers and others, you have suffered a bodily injury following an accident - Contact the firm without obligation.

THE RIGHT REFLEXES:

As soon as you are involved in a traffic accident, as a driver or even as a simple passenger, if you can, you will have to secure the premises in order to avoid the accident or the pile-up, while waiting for first aid. .

Interview people in your vehicle to verify their state of consciousness and their ability to exit. If you can, get out of the vehicle very quickly and take cover, behind the security barriers, 150 m away. Remember to put on your safety vest before you go out. Also, don't forget to place a safety triangle about 30 meters before the accident.

Do not hesitate to take pictures of the position of the vehicles and to collect some testimonies

→ YOU ARE NOT WRONG: Case of the driver and passenger victims

You are therefore a victim within the meaning of the BADINTER law and as such, you are entitled to full compensation for your bodily injury.

The case of the passenger will be resolved much more quickly because the latter is never responsible except in very exceptional cases where he participated in the realization of the accident by suddenly turning the steering wheel for example. Some insurers, in order to delay any payment of indemnities, will not hesitate to indicate that they need to consult the procedure to look for possible responsibilities before any payment. You will now have understood that these are clearly delaying measures.

The legislative framework for the passengers or the driver not responsible is the law of July 5, 1985, known as“ Badinter law ” ” Lawyer in the law of the bodily injury

The Badinter law provides for a “right to compensation” for any victim of a traffic accident in which a land motor vehicle is involved.

A traffic accident (or road accident)

There must be a traffic accident that involves a land motor vehicle (car, motorcycle, scooter or another two-wheeler, coach, tractor, etc.), whether or not it is moving ( how to prove the involvement when 'there is no contact? ).

On the other hand, accidents caused by trains and trams which run on their own tracks are not considered as traffic accidents involving a land motor vehicle, except in exceptional cases (see Case law on train and tram accidents Bodily injury or bodily injury?

These two concepts are often confused.

The injury is damage (injury) more or less the body of a victim of a road accident This attack can indeed affect the physical integrity of the victim of the road but also his psychological integrity The prejudiced body  is in turn is the consequence of the injury

Are you responsible for a traffic accident as the driver of a land motor vehicle?

You are then a victim at-fault within the meaning of the BADINTER law and as such, your insurance will not fail to compensate the other victim passengers, other non-responsible motorists but no compensation will be paid to you on the basis of this same law. . Indeed, in principle it is up to the insurer of the person responsible to compensate the victims within the meaning of the Badinter Law but the driver at fault is not considered by this same law as a victim Unless …


You may have taken out a contract with a Driver's Body Guarantee. This is a guarantee that covers your bodily injury even though you would be held responsible for an accident, wherever you “messed up” alone.

This driver's guarantee, known as the driver's contractual guarantee, nevertheless remains less protective than that granted by the Badinter Law. Indeed, the guarantees contain a floor below which no guarantee is granted, but also a compensation ceiling, not to mention the compensable damages listed strictly.

We can only recommend that you get closer to the firm because we have significant resources to obtain some compensation even though you thought you were not getting any. In this matter, expertise cannot be improvised, and do not let yourself be influenced by the false good advice of your insurer or the opposing insurer, see associations of victims or non-specialized lawyers ...


Beware of too quick proposals from your insurance, experts (in reality a simple insurance consultant ) appointed by your own insurance, good advice from the insurance agent who will, in reality, seek only one goal, the preservation of its own interests to the detriment of yours ...
