Liability law

Liability law

Liability is often a common principle, namely the article in the Civil Code, which governed the unlawful act (Article 6: 162 BW).

But from there it fans out over the whole range of facts from which an appeal on liability of that article is done. The assessment whether a particular factual situation involves illegality takes place on the basis of social norms, which often are logged or developed in all kinds of regulations, ranging from traffic and safety legislation and industry regulations and practices.  So liability is largely "case law" and will often require specific expertise of regulatory and standards matters in issue.
