The Advocate General (AG) of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) recently opined that an Italian law regulating compensation levels for non-pecuniary motor accident damage was 'not incompatible' with EU law.The case (Enrico Petillo & Carlo Petillo v Unipol (C-371/12)) involved a claim for compensation in circumstances where an insurer had paid compensation in accordance with the provisions of the Italian Private Insurance Code (which quantified the level of compensation payable). The claimant deemed the compensation to be insufficient and asked the Italian court to increase the award. The Italian court referred the matter to the CJEU. Whether or not the CJEU adopts the AG's opinion remains to be determined.
