Insurers’ right of recourse in case of double liability insurance

The Supreme Court has held recently (case number: III CZP 16/16) that in case of double liability insurance, an insurance firm, which has paid damages first, is allowed to exercise the right of recourse against the second insurance firm which insures patricular car as well. An article 8241§2 of the polish civil code would be applied here by the course of an analogy. A double insurance is the result of an automatic extending of a motor vehicle insurance.
