Emotional loss

Until recently, 'emotional loss’, the loss sustained following the death or serious injuries of a family member, did not qualify for damages in the Netherlands. In 2018, however, the Upper House approved a legislative proposal introducing compensation for this type of loss. The act took effect on 1 January 2019. Our lawyers can advise you on the possibilities of claiming emotional loss.
