What could look like the fund for compensation of victims of coronavirus

How to compensate the victims of the coronavirus ? Past the horror of the epidemic that took the lives of nearly 30,000 people, it is time to repair that relatives of the victims, and the sick along well get. And for many, the prospect of a lawsuit that will take years to do can never be lead is a new event that promises to be.

To avoid this course of the fighting, two members of parliament PS, Christian Hutin and Régis Juanico, were filed on Wednesday a bill to create a compensation fund for victims of the coronavirus that "the Nation does not forget anyone, nor the soldiers of the Republic, nor the first trench". For the two members of parliament, the previous government announcements are not sufficient. In April, the minister of Health had, in effect, indicated that the coronavirus would be recognized to be so "automatic" as an occupational disease but only for the nursing staff. "What about other professions ?" asks Christian Hutin.

Michel Parisian, president of the association Coronavictimes, goes further. If he is campaigning as the two deputies for the creation of a compensation fund, this researcher in mathematics at CNRS who has worked for the creation of a compensation fund for asbestos victims (FIVA) wants to obtain compensation for all the French who have suffered harm linked to the outbreak. "90% of people who died of the coronavirus were over 65 years old so have not been contaminated in the course of work. This explains that the background that we request is not based on the work", he says to the Figaro.

What victims ?

This is where the difficulty in such a scheme : who are the victims of coronavirus ? "There may be direct victims, the sick and the successors, that is to say, the relatives of a deceased person which demand compensation in the name of this person. But also of the indirect victims who wish to obtain compensation on the ground that they were not able to be with their loved one, offer him a dignified burial, for example. But one can also imagine that people ask for compensation because they feel they have been deprived of care after the postponement of their medical intervention such as hospitals were overloaded and that they have endured sufferings which would have been able to stop thanks to this intervention”, explains Bénédicte Papin, a lawyer specializing in health law, and in reparation of the injury.

Or, if for some cases the causation is obvious, for others, it seems to be more difficult to prove. All the patients in the covid have not been tested and therefore cannot provide this evidence the origin of their ailments. Same for the dead : "in the case of a person is very elderly, how to prove that she died of the coronavirus ?", asks the lawyer.

This is where all the interest of the creation of a compensation fund, concludes Michel Parisian : "For people to assert their right to the compensation of a quick and simple way without having to go through any legal procedures, because this compensation responds to an urgent need". Compensate all victims, but particularly all personal injuries, such as those aesthetic and physical, but also economic to which belong for example the financial loss when a victim can no longer work or the loss of one income in a household after a death.

How much ?

Compensate quickly, but how much ? For Me, Papin, the during of the fund is that it compensates, in a manner consistent, without taking into account the specificity of each case. "It's going to be based on a fee schedule and a repository so that everyone is compensated the same. However, if you spent three weeks in intensive care or three months, we will not have the same sequelae. It is a means of controlling the cost of compensation at the expense of full compensation for the harm", she laments.

A cost that would be according to the proposed law to a maximum of 500 million euros paid to the fund in order to provide a remedy to "between 50 and 60,000 victims and rights holders". "There will be first a financial contribution from the State under the national solidarity, as the government has already recognized its responsibility for the shortage of masks and testing," says Christian Hutin. "We can also imagine a contribution from the branch ATMP (work accident and occupational disease)" as well as of the insurers, says Michel Parisian to that the most important part, however, must come from the State in recognition of its responsibility in the health crisis.

so far, the government has so far not pronounced on such a device. If Christian Hutin and Régis Juanico want to believe that he will take on this responsibility, on the side of the association Coronavictimes we regret the silence of the Prime minister despite their solicitations. "We have asked to be received there is a month and a half, but we got no response or even acknowledgement of receipt". Even so, the mathematician says to feed the "reasonable hope" that, worn by the previous fund as the one for the victims of asbestos, the funds devoted to those of the coronavirus sees the light of day.
