On the 4th of April 2022 the Regional Court in Łódź, changing an earlier verdict of the district court, as a result of an appeal filed by the Law Firm, has accepted a claim for compensation brought by the Law Firm on behalf of the Client (a company belonging to one of the largest capital groups in Europe) against the insurer.
The Law Firm’s client had previously been obliged to pay compensation in connection with an accident at work suffered by its employee. However, the Client’s civil liability in this respect was insured by the Client. The insurer, after notifying him of the need to pay the compensation, initially evaded doing so, and then, after acknowledging its liability, delayed making the transfer. The insurer’s negligence resulted in damage to the Client’s assets, including the enforcement costs incurred.
In view of the above, the Law Firm, on behalf of the Client, demanded that the insurer compensates for the damage caused by the inadequate fulfillment of duties resulting from the third party insurance agreement. By the above-mentioned legally valid judgment, the Regional Court ordered the insurer to pay the entire amount demanded by the Client together with default interest.
