When can you claim compensation for moral damages?



Moral harm is psychological suffering, loss of reputation or compromise of personality as a result of a violation of the law or the actions of third parties. In Russia, legislation provides for the possibility of claiming compensation for moral damage in cases of violation of civil rights and freedoms, as well as for obligations in the event of harm.

Often, a claim for compensation for moral damage arises from obligations resulting from harm to the life and health of citizens, as well as in the event of a violation of the personal non-property rights of citizens, such as the right to honor, dignity, and privacy. For example, this could be insult, slander, violation of the right to personal integrity, etc. In such cases, the injured subject is given the right to receive compensation for moral damage, which is determined by the court based on the degree of his suffering.

In addition, compensation for moral damage may be claimed in cases of material damage, for example, damage to property or loss of income. It is important to take into account that the amount of compensation for moral damage depends on the circumstances of the case, the degree of guilt of the offender, as well as the possible consequences for the victim.

It is important to note that the claim for compensation for moral damage must be justified and documented. To do this, you need to contact professional lawyers who will help you correctly formulate and prove the harm caused.
