The facts of the case are as follows: The applicants are spouses whose daughter died in a road accident in 2004. Against the cause of the accident, criminal proceedings were instituted, in which the applicants, the spouse and the son of the deceased brought civil claims. The court found the perpetrator of the incident guilty and ordered him to pay damages to the plaintiffs. Execution papers have been issued, but they have failed to collect their claims due to the lack of funds available to the perpetrator. Thus, in 2005, the plaintiffs brought before the civil courts separate claims based on Art. 407, para. 1 of the Commercial Law against the Insurer of Third Party Liability Insurance. The claims of the husband and son of the deceased are respected in three instances. In their judgments, the courts find that the plaintiffs have the right to sue the insurer, even though they have already condemned the damage sufferer because they have failed to satisfy him.
