Abstract

During the spreading of the industrial accident insurance in Spain, at the beginning of 2th century, the Government propelled and helped the development of accident insurance and employer's mutual. Those mutuals were characterized by their local and provincial bounds.

The socialization of that insurance during the Second Spanish Republic caused an increase of competence in that business despite the fact that the successive legislation supported them. The competence between mutuals and commercial companies and also among mutuals, leaded finally to severe transformations.
