HTMLOn the Legal Benefits of Status under Article 195, Paragraph 3 of the Civil Code
Emily Chueh; Lee Tsai Partners Attorneys-at-Law;
Legal Alert/Article
June 11, 2014, previously published by According to the general opinions in the practical field in recent years, the so-called "legal benefits of status" is not limited to traditional patterns such as parental rights and spouse rights like the kidnapping of children or rape of spouses.  If family relations are impacted when a victim sustains major injuries and is reduced to a vegetative state or suffers paraplegia, the victim's parents, children or spouse may also claim damages from the wrongdoer on the ground that their legal benefits of status are infringed based on the identity relationship such as family ties and family ethics.  Even if the victim subsequently dies due to severe and untreatable injuries, practical opinions indicate that the wrongdoer's infringement of the legal benefits of status of the victim's family still exists.  Therefore, the victim's family can also claim non-property damages in accordance with Article 195, Paragraph 3 of the Civil Code.
