What are the most common cases in which we can help you?

The term “personal injury accident” is very broad and the possibilities are many, with countless scenarios. However, some of the most common ones are car accidents in Italy, other road accidents, slips and falls in public places, medical negligence, accidents caused by defective products and others. Let’s take a closer look.

Road Accidents

Road accidents are a rather common event all over the world. In most cases, one party is solely responsible for the accident and the other (or others) must be compensated for the damage suffered. Our team of Italian lawyers is specialized in dealing with situations of this type.

Slips, trips and falls

Our Personal Injury Team can help you get compensation for an accident.

Slips, trips or falls are generally the most common injury cases we work with. They can cause serious injuries such as broken bones and back injuries. For example, if you fell in a public place due to a slippery floor or a broken step, it is possible that your injury was the result of negligence and could have been avoided by the owner of the place where you fell. Call us now to learn more about compensation after a slip, trip or fall.

Accidents At Work

Organizations and employers have a responsibility to make the workplace safe for their employees and if you think you are a victim of the negligence of others you can seek compensation.

Medical Liability

We have a separate team of Italian lawyers who specialize in handling personal injury incidents related to medical negligence. Considering that medical negligence is a broad area that can result in relatively smaller losses than loss of life, we believe that such matters should be examined by a specialized Italian law firm that fully understands the system. This will increase your chances of obtaining fair compensation for the accident from the negligent party or their insurer.

Accidents On Holiday

The possibilities for accidents on vacation are endless and it is the sole responsibility of the host to provide a safe recreational environment for visitors and tourists. In the event of accidents involving horse riding, swimming pools, hotels, skiing and other activities, you can get professional help from us if you believe the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence and carelessness.

 At What Stage Do You Need Us?

In some cases, both parties (or all parties if there are more than two) resolve the dispute outside of court through discussions and negotiations. In these situations, we can negotiate on your behalf and help you obtain fair compensation. If such negotiations and discussions fail, our Italian personal injury lawyers can attend and represent you in court to obtain the best possible compensation offer.

Legal Assistance For Road Accidents

When visiting Italy, driving around is the best way to see the city. However, if you are driving a car there is always the possibility of a road accident and, if by bad luck, you are involved in a road accident in Italy, you need to stay calm and know how to handle the situation .

Firstly, if anyone has been injured during the accident, it is absolutely necessary to call the ambulance and the relevant authorities by dialing 112. Do not interact in any way with the vehicles involved in the accident until the arrival of the police who assessed and drew up a report on the incident.

After calling all the necessary authorities and emergency services, take photos and note down the license plate numbers of the cars and the addresses, as well as the details of the insurance companies of the parties involved. If there are people who witnessed the accident, their telephone numbers, names and addresses are equally important. After the Italian authorities have arrived at the scene of the accident and have drawn up a report, read it carefully before signing it and ask for a duplicate which you will need to use for the compensation procedure.

It is possible to obtain compensation for the accident within a period of two years by submitting a damage compensation claim, by registered mail, to the insurance company and the other party. If the insurance company does not agree to pay the indicated amount for the damage, your only option is to go to court and file a lawsuit against the party who is responsible for the accident.
In most cases, many people tend to avoid going to court and submitting the form to insurance companies due to the complexity and details required. In these cases, our firm will provide you with professional assistance in compiling all necessary documentation and representing your case in court to ensure full compensation.

You can also claim compensation for injuries on behalf of someone else: for example, if your child was injured in a pedestrian accident, it does not mean that he cannot receive compensation just because he is under 18. TLA can help you file a compensation claim on his behalf.

Claims take longer to settle in the civil liability sector than in property insurance, as these are often personal injury claims where medical treatment and rehabilitation take place over long periods of time.

Victim Of Crime

If the foreign person who is the victim of a crime thinks that the language barrier may interfere with his right to obtain compensation for the damage suffered during an Italian criminal trial, this belief may be wrong.

The injured foreign party, who has suffered damage as a result of a crime, can appear at trial through a special prosecutor.

In this case, it is generally the defense lawyer of the injured party who acts on behalf of his client. It will be sufficient to give the lawyer a special power of attorney drawn up in two languages (Italian and the language of the foreigner), which will authorize the prosecutor to participate in the trial in place of the injured person and to present the request for compensation for damages on his behalf.

Foreigners involved in criminal proceedings in Italy are very often not informed of their rights under Italian law.

The Italian criminal procedure begins when the Police or the Public Prosecutor become aware of an fact that could be considered a crime. Some crimes require a complaint from the offended party in order to proceed. Others (the more serious ones) do not require any request from a party and the procedure is started automatically.

Once the crime has been registered in the crime register (RGNR), the investigation proceeds, the duration of which depends on the type of crime.

During the course of the same, the person who committed the crime and the injured party, supported by their lawyers or their technical consultants, can carry out defensive investigations, the result of which will be submitted to the judge assigned to the criminal proceedings.

Once the investigations have been concluded, the Public Prosecutor will decide whether to send the case to trial or present a request for dismissal to the Judge for Preliminary Investigations.

The suspect and the injured party can oppose the request for dismissal and, after the opposition, a hearing will be scheduled. In this case, the Preliminary Investigation Judge will determine whether it is necessary to carry out new investigations or close the case. In some cases, the Judge can also order the Public Prosecutor to formalize a charge against the suspect.

Italian criminal law allows the accused to request an alternative procedure for the settlement of the trial against her. Choosing an alternative procedure allows you to obtain a reduced sentence in the event of conviction.

Once the first level of judgment has been concluded, the Court issues a sentence which must be motivated and can be appealed by the accused (in case of conviction) or by the Public Prosecutor (in case of acquittal).

The injured party also has the right to appeal the sentence.

In Italy there are three levels of judgment: Court (with a collegial or monocratic structure), Court of Appeal and Court of Cassation (i.e. the Supreme Court).
