The Personal Injury system in Denmark
Denmark has a no-fault compensation scheme relating to accidents at work, to medical injuries, to personal injuries due to a defect in products and also to personal injuries sustained from traffic accidents involving a motorized vehicle (also trains and airplanes).
Litigation regarding accidents at work and medical malpractice is replaced with an administrative compensation system. The system uses neutral medical experts to evaluate claims of injuries and does not require the injured to prove that a specific person was negligent to receive compensation. Decisions from the first instance can be appealed to a higher authority. And in cases of medical malpractice only decisions made by the appeal authority can be brought before the courts.
In regard to traffic accidents involving a motorized vehicle, the dispute will as well only relate to the size of the claim (not fault). If the injured party and the insurance company cannot agree the case can be brought before the courts.
In other matters, the injured party must prove fault.
