Additional permanent functional incapacity (disability) resulting from a patient injury will be determined by using the classification of permanent disabilities. Consequently, compensation will not be paid for a permanent incapacity caused by the originally treated illness.

Depending on the time of receiving the injury, the incapacity will be determined on the basis of either the Decision of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health (1012/1986) or the Decree (1649/2009). In the classification of permanent disabilities, the functional incapacity has been divided in incapacity categories 1–20.

Permanent incapacity is estimated based on available medical reports. Compensation amount is affected by the nature of injury and the age of the injured party.
