L'oeuvre créatrice de la jurisprudence en matière de responsabilité civile et d'assurance des constructeurs

Abstract : The Spinetta law of 4th January 1978 is the fundamental law governing real estate construction . It governs both the liability of constructors as well as compulsory insurances (liability and insurance for destruction of buildings) . Due to it loopholes and imperfections, the judge have a preponderant margin of interpretation . He freely interpretes and innovates the law . The judge sometimes derogates from principles of the civil code and code of insurance . The judge relies on the financial abilities of insurers to efficiently protect project the owners as required by the philosophy of this law . Thus, the judge extends the scope of the liability of constructors and construction insurance . The dynamic judge¤s action has a negative impact on construction insurance, especially the mechanism of prefinancing damages and the subrogation mechanism . Insurers who prefinance damages do not often recover the funds advanced . In spite of these disfunctionings, this system of insurance remains according to construction professionals, globally satisfactory and by far the most protective at the european level . Stay to know if this system in the future will be a model in case of harmonisation
