How To Open a Defamation And Compensation Case?

A lawsuit for compensation for a defamation action is a type of lawsuit that deals specifically with the issue of “personality rights”, which is also supported by universal laws in our legal system. The concept of personality rights is those rights that depend on the personality. In other words, in the legal system, a person’s rights over all the values that make up his personality constitute his personality rights. In this context, all values such as a person’s honor, dignity, surrounding reputation, honor, the right not to be tarnished, the privacy of private life are included in the rights of personality.

However, an act of defamation is also considered a tort in the context of private law on the grounds that it damages a person’s personal rights. A tort entails the need to cover this damage or, in other words, compensate it for harming the person who committed the act. Therefore, the case of defamation and compensation is brought up in this way.

Those who have been insulted and therefore have been harmed by a wrongful act due to an attack on their personal rights have the right to seek compensation by resorting to legal remedies to remedy this damage. However, the person who has harmed a person in any way due to an insulting act is also obliged to remedy the damage caused in question. In the legal context, a person who harms someone else with a defective act as a reason for a tort must remedy this damage.
