Article 1219. The law applicable to obligations arising from the infliction of harm.

1. To obligations arising from causing harm, the law of the country where the action or other circumstance took place, which served as the basis for the claim for compensation of harm, shall apply. In the event that as a result of such an action or other circumstance a harm has occurred in another country, the law of that country may be applied if the person who caused the harm foresaw or should have foreseen the occurrence of harm in that country. 2. For the obligations arising from causing harm abroad, if the parties are citizens or legal entities of the same country, the law of that country shall apply. If the parties to such an obligation are not citizens of the same country, but have residence in the same country, the law of that country applies. 3. After the commission of an action or the occurrence of another circumstance entailing the injury, the parties may agree to apply the law of the country of the court to the obligation arising from the injury.
