Czech law governing Personal Injury
In the Czech Republic, there is a no-fault compensation system for injuries related to road-traffic accidents and work-related accidents. For road-traffic accidents, damages can be claimed directly against the vehicle’s insurer. In medical malpractice cases, fault must be proven by the injured party.
The only legal criteria used, in assessing the extent of compensation to be paid to an injured party, is the “decency principle”. This is set out in the Czech civil code. This means that the compensation must be decent in relation to a particular case.
The Supreme Court of the Czech Republic has published a methodology for personal injury cases. This methodology is fully accepted by the courts, and in practice is applied to all personal injury* cases. The compensation for wrongful death, in most cases, is around twenty times the monthly average nominal wage (i.e. €25,400.00).
