Tort law focuses on contractual damages and damages arising outside a contract. A co-operation, service or commercial contract may very well give provisions on damages, or damages may be agreed in the general terms and conditions, according to which each situation is interpreted independently.

Damages arising outside a contract refer to a situation where there is no contract between the parties, but one party is inflicted damage or loss through negligence or wilful misconduct. Normally, wilful damage or loss needs to be compensated, but depending on the degree of negligence, the damages may be open to interpretation. However, the definition of damages always starts off from the principle of full compensation.

In criminal cases, we assist the injured party that presents claims in legal proceedings. Damages can be obtained for damage or loss inflicted by criminal action. The damages, including interest on arrears, are calculated from the date of the action in accordance with the principle of full compensation.
