I had a horrendous accident yesterday when, walking to a rehearsal venue, my violin fell out of a (couple of weeks old) Jakob Winter case on to the concrete floor. I've played the instrument for 30 years and used various cases, and never made the mistake of mis-locking. And I had been walking for about 10 minutes at this point, so I know it wasn't my error that caused the accident. The violin suffered a broken neck and a crack, relatively minor damages considering the enormity of the accident. Now I want to sue the Jakob Winter company for the carelessness in their locking system, despite their 120 year long history in the industry. But I'm working in Korea at the moment, so how do I sue a German company? I'd be grateful for any pointers!
