RTA in Turkey
I have been consulted by a client who sustained severe injuries in a jeep
accident in Turkey whilst on holiday. Could you please advise as to
whether she can actually pursue this from this country? Does she have a
cause of action?
Many thanks for any assistance you can give me!
You should check out the police's accident report for the accident. This
report includes culpability of all parts involved in this accident. You can
sue for indemnity according to these culpability numbers. For instance if
your client has 2/8 culpability while the other party has the other 6/8
then you can ask for the 6/8 of your damage from the other party or his
insurance company. Do not wait too long as there is a time limit for this
For the claims of compensation of personal injury because of a traffic
accident, the place of jurisdiction is where the accident took place. So
you had better sue in Turkey with respect to locality. Limitation is 2 years
from the date of event. I hope this helps.
the competence of the jurisdiction deriving from a traffic accident varies due to turkish procedure code Art.8.It may either be the place of residence of the defendant -as the general rule- or in case there is no common place of jurisdiction with respect to abundance of the perpetrators of tort then the courts of the place where the accident took place must be solely competent.However a tacit agreement of jurisdiction may occur if the suit was brought before a non-competent court and the defendants fail to raise the objection of lack of competence as a preliminary objection. However the relevant provisions of the Turkish law of the road must be took in board as well as the ones of the Procedure Code regarding the jurisdiction clauses in the insurance issues.
