German technical appraisal after road accident in Germany


Accident in Germany often happens to foreign drivers who, whilst on the territory of Germany, travel in vehicles on the foreign registration plates (e.g. French, Italian, Dutch). Often also foreign drivers take part in the car accidents in Germany, that are not their fault, during which their vehicle is damaged and destroyed. In the situation where the car accident on the territory of Germany took place at no fault of the foreign driver, s/he has the right to claim compensation from the offending driver – from his third party personal insurance policy.


Each person injured in a car accident in Germany also has the right to choose the method of settling the motor insurance claim caused by the road accident on the territory of Germany. The foreign drivers injured in Germany can generally undertake the claim settlement procedure either with the German insurer of the offending driver, or settle the claim after returning to the country of residence. If the car accident took place in Germany, the injured at no fault of their own foreign driver also has the right to choose an independent car expert, who will value the post-accident damages. Additionally, the injured drivers can use during the claim settlement procedure the legal aid of their chosen lawyer.


The valuation of post-car accident damages in Germany is dealt with by the MOTOEXPERT network. Bringing together the qualified motor vehicle experts, this organisation is able to perform through them the fully independent valuation of the damages caused by the car accident in Germany.

Thanks to partner car experts of the network it is possible to evaluate the damage directly on the territory of Germany, through a German car technology expert, who is the partner of the organisation.
