Rokas Law Firm has undertaken the successful handling of a cross-border claim, brought before the High Court (Kings Bench division) in London against our client, the Greek insurance company Eurolife FFH, in relation to a road traffic accident which occurred in Greece. The English claimant was cycling and crashed on the insureds parked car, sustaining life-changing injuries. The claimant brought a claim of 7 mio EUR excluding general damages, against the Greek insurance company in the UK and the High Court applied Greek Law to rule on the parties’ negligence and liability. Our Senior Associate, Sofia Getimi provided continuous support in relation to all substantive matters of Greek law governing the claim and our Partner – Head of Litigation, Christos Theodorou guided the team through the complexities of this case.
Rokas team also provided decisive support to the solicitors and barrister appearing before the court in relation to the application of Greek law leading to the acceptance of all of our legal arguments by the UK court and the exoneration of the Greek insurance company from all liability .
