What is the certificate?
The certificate is a document prepared by the police when they consider that there has been a crime against traffic safety, and which states the set of proceedings related to the accident.
It includes the circumstances of the accident, the analysis of the causes, the statement of those involved and witnesses if possible and their data, the sketch of the place of the accident, the situation of the vehicles and elements involved, and all those aspects necessary to determine the cause of the accident and issue its technical report.
What if the person involved in an accident is a pedestrian?
If a pedestrian has been run over or has been involved in an accident involving personal injury, injury or damage, he or she may be entitled to compensation for damages. The value of this will vary depending on whether the responsibility lies solely with the driver of the vehicle or if it is shared between the driver and the pedestrian.
It is important to have or request the certificate, which will include a description of the facts. In the event of an accident involving a bicycle or personal mobility vehicle, the pedestrian is also entitled to compensation. While cyclists and users of personal mobility vehicles are not required to take out liability insurance, this may be covered by home or life insurance. In any case, you must contact the insurer. You can also contact a specialist lawyer so that they can study your case.
