Responsabilité et indemnisation Prescription et consolidation du dommage

Abstract : The author comments on the Distilbène litigation from the angle of the prescription of the action for personal injury compensation. A specific concept to personal injury, consolidation of injury is the moment when the injury has become fixed and permanent, such that treatment is no longer necessary, and that it becomes possible to assess the existence of a permanent injury to physical and mental integrity. A complex concept for the author, the starting point of the limitation period is the time of the damage consolidation as illustrated by a recent judgment of the Court of Cassation. Finally, it stresses that the determination of the date of damage consolidation belongs to the medical expert who uses a "chronological method". This can have important implications for limitation periods, as in this case.
