A four-year-long trial conducted on behalf of our Client – a company managing the railway infrastructure in Poland – ended successfully before the Court of First Instance. The Regional Court in Łódź awarded our Client the sum of PLN 1,297,830.97 from the defendant rail transport company and its insurer.
The dispute between the Parties concerned compensation for damaged railway infrastructure. Although the defendant took the position that it was not liable because the claim should be addressed to a third party, in the Court’s view it was undisputed that the defendant, as the dependent possessor, i.e., the lessee of the mechanical means of rail transport, was liable for damages in this case. The insurer’s liability was based on the insurance contract concluded with the defendant lessee.
The evidentiary proceedings, including in particular three expert opinions prepared for the purpose of the trial, confirmed the legitimacy and amount of the damages awarded.
The case was conducted by barrister Anna Marciniak and attorney-at-law Przemysław Przerywacz.
