Violation of a Statutory Rule

Violation of a Statutory Rule

(p.279) 9 Violation of a Statutory Rule
European Tort Law

Cees Van Dam

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the rules governing liability for damage caused by the violation of a statutory rule. It examines the national rules in England, Germany, and France. The first requirement of liability for breach of EU law — the conferment of rights on individuals — is described and illustrated with the Peter Paul case. The chapter also provides some comparative observations, first, between the EU requirement of conferment of rights and the English requirement of a private right of action; second, between the requirement of the scope of the statutory rule and the causation requirement. Finally, the question of whether breach of statutory duty is strict or fault liability is addressed.

Keywords:   tort law, liability, damage, breach of EU law, conferment of rights, right of action, causation
