What is the Law for Personal Injury in Poland?
A personal injury, which in Polish tort law is generally defined as ‘damage to a person’ (szkoda na osobie), is a specific form of damage arising from an infringement of personal interests. A non-exhaustive list of these personal interests is provided by Article 23 of theCivil Code (CC), including health, liberty, dignity, and freedom of conscience.
How is compensation assessed in Poland?
Compensation for personal injuries is regulated in a specific manner by Articles 444–448 CC, though it remains integrated with the entire system of the tort law. As a result, the general rules on tort liability are directly applicable to personal injuries, and compensation for personal injuries can be claimed under exactly the same premises as other types of damage (e.g. under premises concerning the way of bringing a claim into litigation) and – more generally – other claims falling into the ambit of private law.
