DIEZ SCHWERTER, José Luis. The Civil Liability of Road Works Concessionaires and its Grounds on the Safety Obligation to the user in the Chilean Law. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2012, n.38, pp. 121-156. ISSN 0718-6851. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512012000100003.
This paper examines the recognition and enforcement of the obligation of the road work concessionaire to ensure the safety of users in the use of road concessions as basis of civil liability in the Chilean law. Noting then that this obligation has been given a homogeneous scope facing similar hypothesis of harm, it is concluded highlighting the important approach that is generated between the different types of civil liability regimes based on which lawsuits have been resolved in this matter.
