Resumen

SAN MARTIN NEIRA, Lilian C. Contributory negligence and damages for indirect victims. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2016, n.47, pp.151-177. ISSN 0718-6851.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512016000200005.

This article examines the relationship between the institutions of contributory negligence and the damages entitled by the indirect victims. In particular, refers to two series of cases: when the direct victim incurs in contributory negligence and when the direct victim is an incapable subject to the care of those who are also indirect victims. In both cases, the paper explores the possibility of that compensation to the indirect victim would be adjusted on the basis of the contributory negligence, in the first case, as a result of the concurrent fault of the direct victim and, in the second one, as a result of its own fault. Furthermore, in cases of incapable victims, the article discusses the possibility of transferring de contributory negligence of the guardian to the direct victim and the situation in which are the other indirect victims when the accident has happened because of the guardian's fault. In all those cases, the article specially considers the institution of solidarity derived from the tort, because the author considers that this is a crucial point on this matter.

Palabras clave : Contributory negligence; indirect victims; damages for the indirect victims; solidarity.
