Personal injury

A traffic accident, an accident at work, work-related illness, a medical mistake, a victim of violence, injury caused by unsafe products, an awkward fall – situations that can result in bodily and mental injury. Asking whether somebody else is responsible is completely justified and goes more than questioning whether somebody else is to blame. Employers have, for example, a strict duty of care to protect the safety of the people they put to work, even if they are not employees, but independent contractors or student trainees. Doctors are not only obliged to do their work as well as possible, but also to inform their patients properly so that they can make well-considered choices. Road authorities and building owners must, in principle, ensure that their immovable property does not cause any risks that would make alterations required. Producers must verify that the goods they market are safe. And, in principle, anyone who causes a dangerous situation is obliged to consider whether their actions are permissible and provide effective warnings.

Strong in enforcing compensation claims on your behalf

If liability can be established, ascertaining which injuries are eligible for compensation is just as important and sometimes just as complex. This is because personal injury usually has far-reaching consequences and affects all aspects of daily life. Compensation claims can focus on, among other things, incurred (medical) expenses, loss of income, the costs of home care and emotional injury. Future damage and, under specific circumstances, losses suffered by people who take care of the victim are also eligible for compensation.

It does not matter whether you are the victim or the person held responsible for the injuries, you want to know where you stand and what your rights and obligations are. Our law firm has the largest personal injury department in the Southern Netherlands. We have, among other things, all taken the specialist personal injury training course at Grotius Academy and are members with the Dutch Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (LSA). We would be pleased to share our knowledge with you.

We advise you and represent your interests in personal injury cases. You can find your personal injury lawyer at Holla Advocaten, click here to visit our personal injury website (in Dutch).

 

Business services

The business services market is fast-moving. Customers have become more critical about the quality of services, the added value and the costs. Besides creativity and greater customer intimacy, a large number of business service providers are investigating possibilities for binding customers and delivering new services using smart technology. At the same time, costs are kept under control by working more efficiently, reducing personnel, mergers between or the acquisition of similar companies.

We provide legal advice in the form of providing assistance with setting up modern corporate structures, mergers, entering into and terminating joint ventures, searching for alternative forms of financing, securities and establishing intellectual property rights on electronic services and new business models. We can also draft any documents you may require, such as shareholder, agency and joint venture agreements, and general terms and conditions of trade. We help our clients control professional risks and avoid disputes. Should you become involved in a conflict situation – inside or outside a joint venture – we would be glad to assist you and represent you in, for example, civil liability and disciplinary actions.
