The Impact of Changing Economic Conditions on Compensation: A Comparative Study in the Egyptian and Emirati Laws
Main Article Content
In deciding the amount of compensation, it is common knowledge that the judge should evaluate the extent of the injury at the time he issues his court order. Therefore, he must take into account any changes that may have happened between the time the damage occurred and the time he renders his decision. In many instances, the magnitude of the injury fluctuates over time, either growing or reducing due to anticipated or unanticipated occurrences. This is especially true in situations of bodily injury that is significantly influenced by any events that may contribute to its continuance, improvement, or worsening
A change in the harm would be attributable to external factors that have nothing to do with the nature of the harm or the nature of its components if the injury inflicted on the injured party and its components remain the same but its value changes due to economic or financial circumstances that may affect the purchasing power of money. The issue of how the victim's compensation may vary if the worth of their injuries changed is raised by this.
In order to answer this question, we need to know whether the change in damage happened before or after the final court ruling was announced.
