Beyond its indisputable practical role, the instrument of “loss of chances” gives the authors many reasons to doubt about its coherence inside the system of civil liability. An investigation on the injury arising from the loss of chances, beside the examination of the “minimum size” that the chance should consist of in order to allow its loss to get restored, leads the Author to the conclusion of an internal contradiction inside the notion of “loss of chance”; contradiction that the jurisprudence has not solved, nor helped with the notion of “injury in the right of self-determination”.
