Ukrainian law governing Personal Injury
Ukraine is a civil law jurisdiction based on the constitution, international conventions and treaties of which Ukraine is a member, and on general principles of law.
Liability for personal injury is a fault-based system. Given the burden of proof is on the accused/defendant, in order to be cleared of liability, they must prove that they did not act with negligence or ill-intentions.
The Ukrainian civil code provides for compensation for both material damages and moral ones. Moral damages are not limited by any fixed amounts, and they are awarded by the courts depending on the circumstance of a specific case.
