Article 1083. Taking into account the fault of the victim and the property status of the person who caused the harm.

1. Harm arising from the intent of the victim shall not be reimbursed. 2. If the gross negligence of the victim himself contributed to the occurrence or increase of harm, depending on the degree of guilt of the victim and the causer of harm, the amount of compensation should be reduced. In case of gross negligence of the victim and the absence of guilt of the harm-doser in cases where his responsibility occurs independently of the fault, the amount of compensation must be reduced or compensation may be denied unless otherwise provided by law. When causing harm to the life or health of a citizen, refusal of compensation for harm is not allowed. The fault of the victim is not taken into account when reimbursing additional expenses (clause 1 of Article 1085), at reimbursement of harm in connection with the death of the breadwinner (Article 1089), and also at reimbursement of expenses for burial (Article 1094). 3. The court may reduce the amount of compensation for damage caused by a citizen, taking into account his property status, with the exception of cases when the damage was caused by actions committed intentionally.
