Beside traffic accident expertise, Traffic Safety Group (TSG) organizes International Symposiums since 2009.
The first two symposiums organized in Vrnjacka Banja in that year had been ”Traffic accident expertise and damage evaluation”, and ”Vehicle-pedestrian crash”. These topics raised the interest, and contributed to writing good quality papers, and resulted in useful debates at the symposiums.
However, we have noticed that more and more debates are about the attempts of fraud in insurance. Among the accused, there were people from traffic police, traffic accident experts, claim accountants, liquidators, leaders of the insurance companies etc. That is the reason why we started organizing expert symposiums with the topic: “Traffic accident expertise and fraud in insurance”.
Faculty for Transport and Traffic Engineering and TSG developed the models for finding out fraud in insurance and doing traffic accident expertise. Special attention is given to insurance companies, lawyers, judges and prosecutors, and everyone who is interested in the field of fraud in insurance.
The usage of the Law on Road Traffic Safety is specific, thus the knowledge from this field is systematized and made to make the work easier for the judges, prosecutors, lawyers and the other parties interested in correct usage of the Law in the procedures.
Beside the differences in the way of expert expressing, the differences have been noticed in estimations and analysis of dangerous situations. In order to achieve clear expressing of the experts about causes and contributions concerning the occurrence and the analysis of the dangerous situation, at the Symposiums we organize, we recommend the unified way of expressing the opinions and analyzing dangerous situations. That is important in the process for the prosecutors, judges, lawyers and parties involved, so it could be clearly and easily understandable what experts could determine, and, on the other hand, what the experts determined.
The symposiums are organized by the team of experts from TSG. Information about the main topic, prices, dates and the place are posted on our website, at least 3 months before the start,
Symposiums are open for attendance.
The aim of the symposiums
The intention of the Organization Board is to, by continuing the tradition, improve the processes related to traffic accidents and their consequences – killed, injured and great material damages.
The state is losing big amount of money for hospitals for injured people, the cost of the Court procedures and many other costs that occur as the consequence of traffic accidents. If we have in mind that Republic of Serbia is losing at least 3% of GNI (Gross national Income) due to damages caused by traffic accidents, and that around 2% of GNI is given to the Ministry of Education or the Ministry of Defense, it is clear that complete costs for one and a half Ministry, are unnecessarily spent by the citizens of Republic of Serbia for traffic accidents.
The first two most important things any person has in life, are life itself and the freedom. Because of, and in traffic accidents, the lives and the freedom of the participants are endangered so much, that even during the peace, the highest number of deceased is the result of traffic accidents on the roads. Traffic accident expertise influence the more righteous life of the citizens, because the ones who should be punished are being punished, and the unnecessary costs for the State are decreased and the Court procedures are being shorter.
It is of great importance that by doing expertise in great quality with unique expressing of the experts, the citizens of Republic of Serbia are equal by the Law and the punishment of the innocent is being avoided.
With these symposiums we continue the road toward the unique approach and solving guilt and civil responsibility, toward more real and better Court system, and insisting that in this field the level of professionalism is raised to the level of the developed countries.
