Dutch term or phrase: ruime toerekening
"Over het algemeen vindt een **ruime toerekening** plaats bij letselschade en wanneer de overtreden norm strekte tot bescherming van de belangen die in het concrete geval juist zijn geschonden".
Does this mean that the damages awarded are likely to be greater, or that more 'bandwidth'is allowed when apportioning responsibility?
