My Father was a British/ New Zealand citizen who was killed in a car accident in Denmark last year. I am his daughter and a US citizen. I hired a Danish lawyer to try and get travel, funeral, and pain and suffering compensation from the driver. After a year of back and forth the Danish lawyer is now telling me that I can not get any compensation because I am over 18. Is this true? Can I hire a US lawyer to help me in an international car accident case?
