Represented a client in reparation for damages

Successfully represented a client in the Supreme Court of Lithuania in reparation for damages. Our client – a surgeon injured in the accident – filed a request for pecuniary and non-pecuniary damages.

After our success in the first and appellate instances, the insurer and the accused submitted cassation appeals.

The Supreme Court of Lithuania rejected both cassation appeals and supported the arguments provided by our team.

This is the first case where:

  • a GPS tracker and an Endomondo account were recognized as sufficient evidence of a person’s speed and direction of movement;
  • 30,000 EUR in non-pecuniary damages were awarded as reasonable;
  • 15,450 EUR in retraining costs were awarded as reasonable as these costs were necessary for the victim to continue his professional practice as a surgeon.
