Tort Reform and Access to Justice

PEOPIL’s Tort Reform and Access to Justice Group is formed by an enthusiastic group of academics and lawyers who are particularly committed to give the opinion of our organisation to the European Commission and Parliament with regard to personal injury related matters.


In this video, Marco explains what the Tort Reform and Access to Justice group aims to achieve.

On 15 & 16 April 2024, our PEOPIL members from the Tort Reform & Access to Justice Group Iñigo Navarro Mendizabal, Carlos Villacorta Salís and Marco Bona participated as speakers at the CONGRESO INTERNACIONAL “NUEVO MARCO JURÍDICO EUROPEO SOBRE LA INTELIGENCIA ARTIFICIAL: SU IRRUPCIÓN EN EL DERECHO DE DAÑOS”, organised  by the Departamento de Derecho Civil of Alicante University.

The conference focused on AI Act, the future Product Liability Directive and the pending proposal for the AI Liability Directive. AI is becoming more and more a key issue for personal injury lawyers. Marco Bona presented PEOPIL position paper on the above proposal for directives outlining their critical points.
By participating to events of this kind PEOPIL aims at promoting the protection of individuals and society against the risks posed by new technologies and the victims’ right to full compensation.
