ROAD ACCIDENTS ABROAD WITHIN THE EU
According to a European Commission report from 2010, more than 1.5m people are injured in road accidents within the European Union (EU) every year, 35,000 fatally. With its recently extended membership and the prospect of ever greater migration within the EU, accidents abroad are becoming an increasingly important staple of many RTA personal injury practices.
There have been a number of interesting developments over the past few months. Most of which appear to have escaped comment elsewhere and as they are important, I have decided to give them an emphasis this month in this blog, see my later entries. These cases are discussed at greater length in the March issue of BPILS Bulletin.
