International recognition of Harris Kyriakides in Insurance & Reinsurance practice
27 January 2014
We operate one of the largest insurance and personal injury practices in Cyprus with an unmatched high client satisfaction rate. We represent individuals, major insurance companies as well as private corporations active in the insurance sector. We also represent overseas insurance companies and international corporations that operate in insurance led industries for major jurisdictions and international financial centres.
Our civil trial practice covers a broad range of contentious matters:
motor vehicle accidents, drink driving accidents, boating accidents, aviation accidents, dangerous amusement park accidents, farm accidents, swimming pool accidents, construction accidents and other.
When we act on behalf of defendants, our team always seeks to identify fraudulent and exaggerated claims from an early stage. Moreover, we deliver early stage liability advice and aim to achieve an early cost-effective settlement and engage in constructive communications with claimants in order to achieve an early resolution. If, however, claims are led to a trial, our experienced litigation team provides representation that truly protects the interests of our clients.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of a traffic or workplace accident, medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, an animal bite, or if your case relates to any of the aforementioned practices, you should consider getting advice from one of our personal injury lawyers, who specialise in personal injury law. Our legal team can help you claim compensation so that you can use the money claimed towards medical expenses, lost salaries, pain and suffering, temporary or permanent disability and other injury-related expenses. We offer a free initial consultation so that we will be able to tell you if you have a justifiable claim, how likely your case is to succeed and what the value of your claim may be. We have assembled a team of dedicated legal professionals, who can visit you wherever you are and confidently guide you throughout the whole process.
Cyprus Insurance Law
In regard to non contentious matters, we regularly advise and opine on liability and quantum issues subject to the Cyprus law as well as other matters related to Cyprus insurance law. We also deal with matters related to coverage opinions, claims analysis, regulatory compliance and endorsements.
