Sometimes your case against (almost always) the insurance company requires you to litigate in court (proceedings on the merits). This is always a very lengthy and time-consuming process. Fortunately, since 2010, there is the possibility of taking a case that has stalled to court in so-called partial dispute proceedings. During negotiations with the insurer, you can submit a point of discussion (partial dispute) to the judge. The judge will then cut a knot and give a written decision. On this basis, negotiations can be resumed. Since its introduction, the partial dispute procedure has proven to be an extremely useful and successful means of getting stalled cases back on track.
