On 19 May 2017 I had a great pleasure to take part in the conference of the RTA and WHIPLASH EEG in Munich. The conference was organised by PEOPIL, Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers. Presentations were prepared by the speakers from different parts of Europe (from the UK, Spain, Greece, Germany, France and Poland). I took part in the comparative panel on Contributory Negligence in Motor Claims with German and French colleagues and I presented the regulation of the Polish Civil Code referring to this subject. After our presentation we had a very interesting discussion with the audience, which made us aware of both similarities and differences of our legal systems. Except for legal presentations, one of the speakers discussed pros and cons of wearing cycle helmets and tried to answer the question if they reduce brain injury. The conference ended up in the traditional restaurant in the beautiful city Munich.
