I had a car accident in Germany. It wasn't my fault and the claim is to be covered by the insurance of the person who was responsible. They accepted and so forth. The trick is I'm a Polish citizen and the insurance company here is represented by some partner.
Now in Poland the insurance company has 30 days to wire you money when all the paperwork is fulfilled. However their Polish partner claims that the case is conducted under German law so the question is, how much time does a German insurance company have to pay up, is there a time limit, and if so, how long?
Okay since this question has spawned a very broad discussion, while the actual nature of the question was rather narrow, let me try to rephrase it.
How many days an insurance company in Germany has, according to local law, to pay money since claim was filled. For example: In Poland they have 30 days.
If this edit won't help, please kill the question.
