Emotional loss

‘Emotional loss’, the loss sustained following the death or serious injuries of a family member, does not yet qualify for damages in the Netherlands. However, the Upper House recently approved a legislative proposal introducing compensation for this type of loss. The act will be taking effect on 1 January 2019. For more information, please read our article on the legislative proposal on emotional loss (in Dutch). Our lawyers can advise you on the possibilities of claiming emotional loss.
