Injuries / Accidents

International Traffic Accidents

Travelling abroad not only includes foreign culture nut also a different way of traffic behaviour. Even if not having the problem of a right or left hand wheel, in every country the way of traffic behaviour differs, not only for motor vehicles but for pedestrians as well.

Road danger is a man-made crisis, with human error accounting for over 90% of accidents.

A road accident is a consequence of the quality of the road transport system or a break in the balance between the environmental demand and the driver’s ability to act.

Especially in touristic areas Ninety percent of our road accidents are related to bad driving behaviour — driving recklessly and speeding under the influence of alcohol, changing lanes without signalling, driving on the hard shoulder and passing through red lights.

Since a traffic accident is almost out of control, our office makes sure that the compensation because of a traffic accident is NOT.

In Alcibiades Chatzantonis & Associates Law Office, we make sure that our clients have a full and on the spot knowledge of the applicable law, the consequences, the rights and the time limit.
