Chapter Summary

This chapter first discusses general provision on tort liability based upon fault, combined with a provision on a non-fault principle for "activities involving increased danger". Various forms of government tort liability are covered in the Civil Code. In addition to the general rules on tort, there are further provisions on the liability of minors, employers, persons without capacity to act etc. The Civil Code provides that moral damage is subject to compensation in monetary terms. The Code provides that the court should take into account the level of fault of the person who has caused the harm and other contributing factors. The court must also consider the moral and physical suffering of the victim. The victim may choose whether to sue the seller or the manufacturer. Finally, the chapter discusses government tort liability and unjust enrichment.
