BARRIENTOS ZAMORANO, Marcelo. Los daños extrapatrimoniales que se previeron o pudieron preverse al tiempo del contrato. Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2007, vol.34, n.1, pp. 7-22. ISSN 0718-3437.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34372007000100002.

It is interesting to note the French influence on the Spanish interpretation of articles 1107 of the Spanish Civil Code. It is considered that article 1107 should be understood as article 1150 of French Code. Compensation is not forthcoming to the victim if it had been possible for him to avoid injury through his own diligence. Consequences that constitute an abnormal result of non-fulfillment are not subject to compensation. This is enlarged to include damages, a situation that we don't find in contractual liability responsibility where a distinction should be made between tortius fraud and debtor in good faith, according to article 1558. What is definitely sought is compensation directed at the creditor's interest that has been obliged to suffer a loss that has caused him “anguish”, “nuisance”, “tension”, “uncertainty”, “annoyance”, “restlessness” and “concern”, among other non-pecuniary damages. In Common Law, and thanks to Pothier's and Dumoulin's influence, the situation is not very different. Today the principle endures that foreseeable damages are those the debtor could have reasonably foreseen and which would result from the non-fulfillment of his obligations or those that are part of the contemplation of the parties.
