Compensation law refers to compensation disputes arising from unjust acts or any other reason.In general, there are two types of compensation cases: “pecuniary compensation case” and “moral compensation case”.Material and non-pecuniary damages; It is a kind of case that solves disputes arising from completely different legal reasons such as breach of contract arising from the law of obligations, injury or death as a result of traffic accident, death as a result of malpractice, injury or death as a result of work accident, committing a crime, divorce.
Compensation law cases can be listed as follows:
1-Compensation due to occupational disease

2-)Doctor Malpractice Compensation

In this case, there is also the right to pecuniary and non-pecuniary damages.
3-)Work Accident Compensation Case
Work accident compensation case; It is a kind of material and non-pecuniary damages lawsuit filed by a responsible employer to pay compensation to him or his relatives in case an employer is injured or killed in the workplace due to the work relationship of the worker.

Even if the offender learns the perpetrator and the damage later, in any case, there is a 10-year statute of limitations from the initiate of the act.(We do not go into details because we provide summary information here.)
