Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The present master’s dissertation focuses on the issues surrounding the compensation of the serious body sequels resulting from traffic accidents. The target of this approach is the explanation of an adequate compensatory treatment to be attributed to permanent disabilities, the clarification of the various layers of protection required by profoundly injured people and what kind of protection do each layer requires. So that can be possible, is used an analytical method that embraces a doctrinal and jurisprudential relevant analysis to this matter. Therefore, this investigation appeals, above all, to casuistic, common sense and fairness criteria, so that the outcome culminates in an improvement of the compensation to be attributed to the immediate and mediate victims of serious (non-fatal) body injuries.
