The Personal Injury Law Practice:
Our multilingual team of personal injury lawyers at De Cotta McKenna & Santafé (De Cotta Law) have extensive experience in defending and pursuing class actions, compensation claims and personal injury claims in Spain, the Canary Islands and the UK. We work on behalf of private claimants as well as insurance companies and other law firms.
As members of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and the Association of Spanish lawyers who specialise in civil responsibility and insurance matters (Asociación de Abogados de responsabilidad civil y seguros), our expertise encompasses UK & Spanish personal injury law, class actions, medical negligence and public liability claim.
Our work encompasses all types of claims from claims for road traffic accidents and injuries in public places. We are also ideally positioned to represent you or your insurance company for claims for injuries whilst on holiday abroad in Spain. In some cases we recover costs from your home, travel or motor insurance; we will liaise with the firms and advise.
With a personal injury claim or action, we will initially advise on the prospects of successfully pursuing the claim and the likely compensation that the claimant would recover according to Spanish law. In addition, we provide professional reports on negligence and liability claims and Certificates Of Law.
Spanish lawyers commonly use a scale of set fees in relation to the amount of the claim. However at De Cotta Law, we are happy to place limits on legal costs so you can make an informed decision to proceed.
