Work accidents are particularly demanding in addressing them because apart from the need for clear proof of responsibilities they require a direct and effective medical support for the remedy of the injury.

Often the damages are not obviously associated with work and in that case the experience of the legal team and the ability of the medical experts play a decisive role.
Why entrust All Accidents with your case:
Our philosophy is to offer more and therefore you can claim more.
Our expert partners have extensive experience in accident cases, having participated in hundreds of claims and recoveries.
In addition, our medical partners have checked in practice and identified those external experts who apart from specialized support in a court, are able to advise or undertake the restoration of the damage. Part of the cooperation with us is the continuous advisory/monitoring of the medical evolution of the person hurt, in direct contact with the relevant physicians.
Do not agree to anything before talking to us.
Insurance companies, in their effort to minimize the compensation you deserve may try various ways of approaching you through "very friendly" intermediaries like lawyers, claim managers or social workers.
Your interests are, however, in complete contrast with theirs. Do not agree to anything unless you receive an advice from us. Our specialist will examine and propose without any commitment from your side how to support you best to maximize your satisfaction. Even if you agree formally on something and your medical condition worsens, there may be ways to re-negotiate but it will be more difficult.

What is a work accident.
According to Greek law an accident that happens to the employee during the work or in relation to the work and which is due to an abrupt or violent event, as long as this has had as a result on the employee's inability to work for over 4 days or even loss of life. Violent event means that there is an extraordinary and sudden external impact factor that has nothing to do with the health status of the employee. This impact can be the result of burdening of the working conditions under unforeseen and exceptional circumstances. Therefore pre-existing illness, which appears or worsens during the execution of work under normal circumstances is not an accident. But if the illness came while performing the work under exceptional and unusual conditions or excessive effort made by the employee in the performance of his work, then this is classified as an accident.
The Court has judged that excessive effort by the employee which caused death or incapacity for work is a work accident.
Thus, acute myocardial infarction, caused by unusual working conditions and adverse conditions has been deemed by the courts to be an accident.
Also as work accident is defined what was caused due to overly demanding working tasks assigned to an employee who has not completely recovered from an illness.
The related provisions on work accidents cover three types of accidents:
During the performance of work
Those that occur during the performance of work as a direct consequence of this (the worker's injury by machine, fall during the execution of work etc.).
In relation to work
Those that occur in relation to work which means outside the place and the time of work, assuming that they are even indirectly connected with the work. The courts have also judged as work accidents those occurring during the transport to and from work or caused due to actions undertaken in the interests of the employer, even without his mandate, during break time at the place of work or when coming or leaving and for a period of one additional hour respectively.
Those due to an occupational disease
Occupational diseases are those due to the effects of working conditions, as referred in details in the occupational disease regulation of Social Insurance Institute of Greece (IKA). In a wider sense, however, any worsening of any pre-existing illness due to work conditions is also a work accident
