• Liability law

You cannot make an omelette without breaking eggs. ‘Classic’ liability law centres around the question of whether the injured party can recover the damage from the other party, and if so, to what extent. But this is infinitely more complicated in actual practice. Have the parties entered into a contract and if so, what agreements have they made on the division of risks? Is the damage covered by insurance? Are there any commercial interests involved or is there any fear of publicity?
