European Union law

A necessary part of my work has involved consideration of the European Union directives which apply to road traffic insurance law both in pursuing and defending claims for indemnities under the Road Traffic Act 1988 and under the various MIB schemes.

I am familiar with the principles of the interpretation and application of EU law and the detail of the provisions of EU Directives.

For those who have an interest in this subject, you can find the Sixth Motor insurance directive here: Directive 2009 103 EC relating to insurance against civil liability in respect of the use of motor vehicles and the enforcement of hte obligation to insure against such liability.

The Department of Transport has recently published a consultation paper on the proposed changes to the UK insurance scheme. A copy of that document can be found here: Department of Transport Technical consultation on motor insurance Consideration of the European Court of Justice ruling in the case of Damijan Vnuk v Zavarovalnica Trigla
