Direct rights against insurers: what Europe ever did for us
Sarah Crowther has recently authored an article in the Journal of Personal Injury Law, in which she examines EU law provisions that have obliged the UK to provide the victims of road traffic accidents (RTAs) with a direct right of action against the insurer of the vehicle involved, including in RTAs with a cross-border element.
She proceeds to review case law addressing the jurisdiction issues that may be raised in direct rights cases and considers how the UK’s withdrawal from the EU might affect the direct rights regime.
