EuCO as a strong partner for Insurance Companies
EuCO negotiates with Insurance Companies on behalf of the injured in accidents and their families in order to receive compensation and other benefits in pre-court proceedings. EuCO pursues all claims connected to the event, i.e. apart from the compensation for loss of health, redress and compensation for death of family members, also claims for lost income, reimbursement of costs of treatment, transport, private treatment, purchase of bandages and medicaments, pension claims and reimbursement of costs for repairing a damaged vehicle, renting a replacement vehicle, hauling and compensation for the loss of vehicle’s trade value after an accident.
Thanks to EuCO’s activities the amount of compensation awarded may increase even several hundred percent in relation to the original proposal made by Insurance Companies.
Own Law Office
EuCO is one of very few compensation companies in Poland, which has its own Law Office. This Law Office supplements EuCO’s offer and represents clients in court proceedings. Thanks to the Law Office, the injured have a chance to receive higher amounts of compensation and additional benefits if in pre-court proceedings their value was not satisfactory. In 2015 the cases led by EuCO Law Office entailed more than 13,7 thousand trials in courts all over Poland. In the record-breaking month, there took place almost 1,4 thousand trials. EuCO cooperates with more than 40 Law Offices and 1,5 thousand lawyers. EuCO Law Office is a pioneer in new legal solutions – it was because of the case run by EuCO Law Office, when the Supreme Court adopted a resolution that the closest family member of the injured person, who died in an accident deserves a compensation for the suffered harm, if the event took place before the 3rd of August 2008, which opened the way to receive due benefits for thousands of people.
The leader of compensation market in Central and Eastern Europe
EuCO pursues an active policy of foreign expansion – it created a unique business model (sale of high quality services via specialized network of agents), which is successfully incorporated into new markets. Since 2008 EuCO has been present on the Czech market (Evropské Centrum Odškodného s.r.o) and has already achieved a leader position. In 2010 a Hungarian company was set up – Európai Kártalanítási Központ KFT, since 2011 the Capital Group has been present in Slovakia (Evrópske Centrum Odškodného spol. s.r.o.) and since 2012 in Romania (Central European de Despagubiri S.R.L.). In these countries, EuCO leads the whole compensation market. The Capital Group has high competencies in building the structures abroad from scratch. The board is planning starting activities on other markets as well. As a proof of recognition for EuCO’s international activity it was granted the title of “The Ambassador of Polish Economy” in 2015 by Business Centre Club.

For 12 years, EuCO shows the society, that everybody has the full right to fight for due compensation. It draws attention to the fact that all injured people and their families can count on the support of a strong institution that will protect their interests – the institution that is an effective and equal partner for Insurance Companies.

- Krajowe Centrum Finansowe (National Financial Centre)
The clients of EuCO have the possibility of obtaining the financial resources essential for treatment and rehabilitation very quickly. This financial help may come long before payment of compensation by Insurance Companies, for which in Polish reality one may wait even a dozen of months. Such a delay in rehabilitation and treatment may be a serious obstacle in recovering. Time plays a crucial role, therefore, when a case is filed to an Insurance Company or a lawsuit is sent to the court, it is enough to sign the agreement with KCF and the same day the funds necessary for treatment and rehabilitation are transferred to the client’s bank account.
