If someone else is responsible for your injury, Maître Nicolas GEMSA helps make them accountable and defends you in french courts.
If you’ve been injured because someone else didn’t take the right amount of care, you may be able to make a public liability claim.

In order to make a claim, you must be able to prove the accident was caused by the negligence of a car, a person, an organisation or a company. A claim can cover physical and psychological injuries, caused in public and private places, and includes a number of different types of accidents, including:

Car wreck
Brain injury
Slips and trips
Unsafe premises
Defective products
Dog bites
Physical and sexual assaults
Aviation or train accidents
Victims of terrorist attack (Nice, Paris...)

Public liability claims can also be made for injuries suffered in schools, playgrounds, sporting venues and amusement venues, as well as aviation accidents and diving accidents.

Sometimes, even the best medical treatment cannot prevent illness or injury. Likewise, a bad experience with a doctor may not be the cause of an injury. However, if a health-care provider causes you an injury while in their care, you may be able to make a medical negligence claim.

Medical negligence covers a wide range of issues. It can include:

Surgical errors
Medical misdiagnosis
Prescription and medication errors
Medical errors during childbirth
Stillbirths and Neonatal deaths
Defective products
Cerebral Palsy caused by medical error
Anesthesia errors
