The Osservatorio sulla Giustizia Civile (monitoring group about civil justice) at the Tribunal of Milan made public the 2018 edition of their “Tables for the assessment of non-pecuniary damages arising out of personal injuries and loss of parental relationship”.

The Tables are widely used by Tribunals all around Italy for the assessment of non-pecuniary damages.

Among the most interesting innovations we underline the following:

  • values mentioned in the 2014 edition have been increased of 1,2 %
  • a single figure is introduced, in order to assess the non-pecuniary standard damage arising out of the permanent damage to health, under all points of view and many distinct definitions (so called biological damage, moral damage, existential damage and so on)
  • a single figure is introduced, also in order to assess the non-pecuniary standard damage arising out of the temporary damage to health
  • values aimed at assessing the non-pecuniary standard damage arising out of the loss of parental relationship are also made consistent with the recent principles of joint assessment of non-pecuniary damage under all points of view.
