A comprehensive legal assistance by compensation lawyer is seen necessary for compensation procedures. The main reason is that compensation is considered as a very complex area of law in Turkey. Compensation may be divided into two main categories: compensation for pecuniary and non-pecuniary damages. Nevertheless, we need to evaluate more questions for the better clarification of compensation law in Turkey.

What Is Compensation Law?

The term compensation is the provision for the loss arising from a transaction or action of a real person, legal entities, government/or government agencies. Compensation means a form of payment or remuneration for work, services and|or harm suffered. When it comes to the term “compensation law”, it means the calculation of such damage and its payment by the person or relevant institution who caused the damage in question.

What Is the Meaning of Compensation Case?

Compensation cases involve the evaluation and observation of various legal requirements provided by sub-branches of law including labor law, law of obligations, commercial law, criminal law, and -where the damage is caused by an administrative act or action-, administrative law. Therefore, the legal application for compensation before relevant authorities, including judicial institutions, is really complex and a hard job.

Can You Sue Doctors for Compensation in Turkey?

You can sue any healthcare providers including doctors in Turkey for their malpractice treatments. For instance, when any false treatment takes place under the umbrella of a hospital, the victim can lodge an application before the judicial authorities. This should be a compensation case. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, physicians, psychiatrists, dentists or allied health workers may be regarded as “accused” or “suspected” in a criminal case. But it is very critical to be aware that victims have a right to bring a compensation action before judicial justice, too.
