Public Services, Service Public and Liability for Products
This chapter explores further the involvement of public elements in French law’s approach to liability for products. It starts by explaining how French law distinguishes between different categories of services publics, how this affects the legal position of their recipients, and how this in turn affects the substantive law governing liability in respect of the provision of the public service and its impact on liability for products. The chapter then examines three major examples of public services which have cut across the public and private law divide in French law: the supply of public utilities, transport, and health care.
