[...] La conséquence du critère appliqué («dommages évitables») sera probablement aussi que le «fonds des dommages» aura progressivement tendance, pour des raisons humanitaires, à incorporer les sinistres «évitables» dans le système d'indemnisation, tout comme c'est maintenant le cas avec la jurisprudence de la responsabilité.

OBS

dommage évitable, préjudice évitable : termes normalisés par le Comité de normalisation, Promotion de l'accès à la justice dans les deux langues officielles (PAJLO).
