A miner claimed against his employer for loss incurred as a result of his permanent invalidity caused by his employment as a miner for 13 years. The miner had in place, two critical illness insurance policies relating to the period in question. The Constitutional Court of Peru adjourned the proceedings on the basis that the two insurance companies who provided the miner with the relevant insurance policies, should be joined to the proceedings as co-defendants.
