The legislator is considering extending the ‘Disasters and Serious Accidents (Compensation) Act’ (hereafter Wts) to uninsurable risks concerning personal injury or death. The Wts is a ‘last resort’ mechanism for the compensation of property damage that results from disasters. This study aims to find a future ruling that is the most appropriate to decide who will be entitled to a financial award based on the Wts and for which part(s) of their personal damage and how the damage must be translated into a monetary award.
