10 July 2018

UK residents injured in traffic accidents in Europe may find difficulties seeking compensation from overseas insurers, post-Brexit, says the European Scrutiny Committee in its publication of EU papers this week.

Meeting summary

Injury compensation system post-Brexit

The Committee discussed the implications of Brexit for UK residents who are injured in a traffic accident elsewhere in Europe, as the current system — which allows them to pursue compensation in the UK from an overseas insurer — will fall away when the UK leaves the Single Market.

Other topics discussed in this report

The Committee are also reporting on:

  • EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and Investment Protection Agreement (IPA)
  • Data Protection and the Council of Europe
  • Possible financial implications for the UK of the next Multiannual Financial Framework
