Introduction

Georges Clemmer and Markus Dörig looking at the revision of the Federal Act on Insurance Policies (IPA), which entered into force on 1 January 2022. One of the newly introduced provisions is article 60(1 bis) of the IPA, which allows injured parties – under certain circumstances – to choose between pursuing their claim for compensation either against the liable party or, instead, directly against the latter’s insurer.
