CMS Insurance - Hoge Raad Alert


CMS Insurance - Hoge Raad Alert: Februari 2024
De Hoge Raad der Nederlanden (Hoge Raad) is de hoogste rechter in Nederland in civiele zaken, strafzaken en belastingzaken. Dat betekent dat de Hoge Raad beoordeelt of een lagere rechter (recht­bank/gerecht­shof) bij een uitspraak het recht juist heeft toegepast en of de procedure juist is gevolgd. 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. Hiermee bent u altijd up-to-date en bij vragen kunt u gerust contact opnemen met onze advocaten.
