In personal injury cases, the compensation for the damage, is an open question continuously bated for the interest it arouses both nationally and internationally. The different cultural, legal and socio-economic backgrounds, that distinguish the European Union States, have not allowed the creation of a single model to be adopted for the compensation of health damages.

Even today, groups of experts are still dealing with the issue but, despite the many proposals, uniformity of damages appears unattainable.
