Summary
If the damages resulting from a major catastrophic event exceed the amount the liable party has to pay irrespective of the party at fault, the claims of the person who suffered the damage are reduced proportionately. These reduction statutes are however often not practical. Philipp S. Fischinger discusses feasible alternatives and advocates a »socialized damages scheme.«
