InterEurope Magazine Special France – la Loi Badinter




Anniversaries should be celebrated – 30 years “Loi Badinter”


In the summer of 2015, the French compensation law, the so-called “Loi Badinter” (Badinter Act), celebrated its 30th anniversary. This event was the subject of a recent article by InterEurope AG in the “Themendossier” issue 19/2015 of the Versicherungsforen Leipzig, entitled: “Connected Cars are on the rise – What Will Change for Vehicle Insurance?” The high level of interest in the subject prompted InterEurope AG to dedicate a special edition of the InterEurope Magazine to the “Loi Badinter”.


In this Special, our colleagues from InterEurope France will explain the developments leading up to the Loi Badinter and give an overview of the relevant legal developments in France since 5 July 1985. We will then examine the so-called “Kitesurfer Ruling” by the Court of Cassation (Cour de cassation) on 6 February 2014 (Case no.: Cass. Civ. 2ème No. 13-13265) to highlight the fundamental principles of the current legal situation in France. If you have further questions regarding our services and claims handling in France, you can contact us at any time.


We have also revamped the look of the InterEurope Magazine, which will continue to keep you updated in all aspects of European claims handling, including latest developments and market trends. The updated InterEurope Magazine will be relaunched as an online magazine (starting with this special newsletter) together with our new website, but you will be able to receive regular editions from Summer 2016 onward.


We hope you enjoy our InterEurope Magazine Special and wish you a pleasant reading… click here
