Abstract

In Cameroon, the law that governs the compensation of motor accident victims is the CIMA Code. This law fully recognizes the driver as being a victim that is liable to compensation in case he suffers from a motor accident. Equally at the same time, the law has put in place special modalities which the driver must fulfill in order to receive complete or partial compensation. This is particularly important because the same law provides for a different regime of compensation when it comes to the case of victims non-driver. A driver could therefore be described as a victim sui generis. This paper does a critical appraisal of the procedural and substantive aspects inherent in the law of compensation, relevant to the driver-victim.
