Abstract

Desde un punto de vista comparado, se describen aquí los dos modelos básicos que existen en Europa a la hora de plantear la indemnización de los daños sufridos por quien antes del accidente desarrollaba tareas domésticas sin remunerar. Después de colocar a nuestro sistema en ese panorama, se destaca la importancia de reconocer la dimensión patrimonial de este tipo de daño y se señalan los problemas que derivan de no hacerlo.

From a comparative perspective, this paper presents the two models that can be described in the European systems of non-contractual liability when it comes to compensate an injured person who – before the accident – performed domestic chores without being paid for it. From our domestic system point of view, it also emphasizes the importance of a clear recognition of the patrimonial character of the loss sustained by this kind of victim and the problems that a legal system must face, if this recognition is lacking.
