reparação de danos
Explanation: A reparação de danos ocorre em juízo. Dependendo da situação que lhe deu causa, poderá abranger, além dos danos materias, os morais.
"The award of damages may include the following heads of damage:
Special damages - losses suffered from the date of the tort up until the date of trial and which can be precisely quantified in monetary terms.
General damages - losses that cannot be quantified exactly in monetary terms (the actual pain, suffering, and loss of amenity caused by the negligent act), as well as expected future losses from the date of trial (e.g. continuing pain and suffering, and loss of earnings). Where the plaintiff/claimant proves only negligible loss or damage, or the court is unable to quantify the losses, the court may award nominal damages.
Punitive damages - are awards of amounts greater than those needed to compensate the victim and are intended to deter intentional, usually malicious, wrongdoing. They are not available where only negligence has been proved."
