Compensation for loss or damage to any property2021-07-26T14:39:11+03:00

This case is brought where a claimant suffered harm to their personal property because of the actions of the respondent. Property can include an automobile, a fence, a tree, a home, wedding pictures, or any other possession. The harm must have been suffered less than 3 years before filing the case. To determine the compensation, the court can look at the replacement value of the property, cost of repairs, loss of use until repaired or replaced, or, in the case of very personal items (e.g., wedding pictures), by subjective testimony as to sentimental value. The court’s remedy is to restore the claimant to the position he or she was in had the harm not occurred which will be paid by the respondent.

Such injuries could arise from trespass, nuisance, assault, false imprisonment, infliction of emotional distress, road accidents, factory accidents, animal bites, bad food, manufacturing defects and several others.
