Traffic accidents

All persons involved in traffic accidents are entitled to compensation, with very few exceptions, even if they are responsible for the accident.

Any claim for compensation may be directed at the opposing party’s insurance company, and it is also possible to claim compensation under one’s own insurance. Your demand to the opposing party’s insurance company must be calculated according to the rules on Liability for Compensation.


In case of a traffic accident during working hours, your may demand compensation both under the rules of the Danish Workers’ Compensation Act, see Industrial Injuries, and under the Liability in Damages Act, see Liability for Compensation.


It is possible to demand compensation for personal injury, even if the responsible party cannot be directly identified.


HjulmandKaptain handles every year a large number of actions for damages resulting from traffic accidents.
