Compensation for damage to health
The right for compensation for damage or harm represents a very specific and very variable area of tort law. The new legal regulation facilitates far wider enforcement of compensation for damages, particularly in the area of non-pecuniary damages. The compensation of non-pecuniary damage is a significant claim within the damage to health which supplements the right for compensation for the loss of earnings, compensation for pain and suffering and compromised job prospects in the society. In comparison with the previous legal regulation, the Civil Code enables the survivors to claim the non-pecuniary damage incurred by the loss of a close person.
