The European Commission is taking the Netherlands to the European Court of Justice for failing to implement a law covering insurance claims when accidents happen outside a victim's home country. The EC says until the directive is applied throughout the European Union, drivers from one country involved in an accident with a car registered and insured in another "will still face serious difficulties in claiming compensation quickly."
