The most common cases handled by Attorney Marie Cilinkova are road-traffic accidents, work-related injuries, injuries and damages related to criminal offences and damages, and medical malpractice cases.
What is the law for Personal Injury in the Czech Republic?
In the Czech Republic, there is a no-fault compensation system for injuries related to road-traffic and work-related accidents. For road-traffic accidents, damages can be claimed directly against the vehicle’s insurer. In medical malpractice cases, fault must be proven by the injured party.
How is compensation assessed in the Czech Republic?
The only legal criteria to be used in assessing the extent of compensation to be paid to an injured party is the “decency principle”. This is set out in the Czech civil code. This means that the compensation must be decent in relation to a particular case.
The supreme court of the Czech Republic has published a methodology in personal injury cases. This methodology is fully accepted by the courts and, in practice, is applied to all personal injury cases. The compensation for wrongful death in most cases is around the sum of 20 times the monthly average nominal wage (€25,400.00).
*In contentious business a Solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
