Thus, the analysis and synthesis method as well as the logical method were used to formulate a holistic view on non-pecuniary damage in Ukraine and some other European countries in general, as well as the features of its compensation. The logical-semantic method was used to establish the meaning of the term “non-pecuniary damage”.

Practical implications: According to the results of the research, proposals were made to amend and to adjust the relevant legislation of Ukraine.
