De arresten die de Hoge Raad wijst hebben veelal dan ook een grote impact op de juridische praktijk.In de CMS Insurance – Hoge Raad Alert signaleren wij alle voor de verzeker­ing­s­rechtelijke praktijk relevante arresten. Dit doen wij door middel van een korte situ­atiebes­chrijv­ing, de beslissing die de Hoge Raad hierin heeft genomen en een link naar de uitspraak zelf.
