Ministry offers new compensations

THE NEW Civil Code may define several new situations in which people will be allowed to ask the state for compensation. The Justice Ministry, which is preparing the new law, will allegedly include compensation for loss caused by an accident or by information or advice, and will modify the compensation for the loss of an unborn child, the TASR newswire reported on September 3.

The section on damage compensation and non-pecuniary damages might also include the right to claim for compensation for mental suffering and for the “loss of joy from a holiday”. Moreover, it should re-introduce compensation for damage caused by an animal or a physical object, and compensation for pain suffered and difficult social achievements will be amended, TASR wrote.

The Justice Ministry explained that the changes are the results of the scientific progress in the information society and the rise in living standards, which are accompanied by fulfilling various needs through a variety of products and services, and expanding travel and recreation.

“It is necessary to reflect the new developing trend into legislation over the compensation to damages in general and to specifically take into account the particular needs and tendencies of its harmonisation with the law of the European Union’s member states,” the legislation proposal of the new law reads, as quoted by TASR.
