Soud Lek. Spring 2017;62(2):22-24.
[Article in Czech]


After the new Civil Code had come into force, the Compensation Statute lost the efficiency. The injury compensation should not have been provided according medical report with respect to the Compensation Statute but according decency basis. So the Highest Court has accepted the Methodology of compensation. The article deals with the first reflection of the Methodology in the judicature of the Constitutional Court as well as the opinion of the Constitutional Court of the Government Statute which regulates the injury compensation in labour law. The Metodology of compensation is based on the ICF (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health), while the Compensation Statute was based on the etiology principe. ICF is a classification of health and health-related domains. As the functioning and disability of an individual occurs in a context, ICF also includes a list of environmental factors. ICF is the WHO framework for measuring health and disability at both individual and population levels.
