Munich District Court: WWK Versicherung makes disability payments due to traumatic brain injury

After the intervention of L & P Luber Pratsch Rechtsanwälte Partnerschaft, WWK Versicherung made an invalidity payment after the insurance company had refused to make a payment before the court.

The background to the payment was a fall by the insured person in 2016. According to her husband, she suffered a craniocerebral trauma. The policyholder then submitted an application to WWK Versicherung for benefits from the accident insurance. The insurance company obtained an expert opinion that confirmed the 100% disability, but justified this with a previous illness. The WWK then refused to acknowledge the insured event.

The policyholder then asked the specialist lawyer for insurance law, lawyer Christian Luber, LL.M., MA, for support, who, after an intensive examination of the documents, came to the conclusion that the refusal to pay was legally incorrect.

Since WWK Versicherung refused to pay out of court, a lawsuit was finally filed. The process was over five months later. After the court had submitted a settlement proposal, the parties agreed on an amicable settlement.

“The procedure shows that a refusal of benefits by an insurance company should not simply be accepted. Rather, an intensive examination of the insured event by lawyers specializing in insurance law regularly leads to the insurance company being able to enforce a payment,” explains attorney Christian Luber, LL.M., MA.
