Abstract   [Indice]

In personal injury cases, the compensation for the damage remains an open question continuously bated for the interest it arouses both nationally and internationally. The different cultural, legal and socio-economic backgrounds that distinguish  the EU member States, have not allowed the adoption of a single model for the compensation of health damages. The debate started in the mid-seventies when the need to unify, or at least standardize the system of personal injury compensation,  was first perceived in the European context. Even today, groups of experts are still dealing with the issue but, despite the many proposed solutions, uniformity of damages appears unattainable.

Key words: personal injuries, compensation, harmonization
