When a young child causes injury to others, the child cannot understand his actions. In such cases, we have to consider who compensates for the damage. This problem is covered by Civil Code 714, paragraph 1. So, I wonder if parents must always take responsibility for their children’s actions? This is a theme that many experts have been discussing for a long time. Recently, the Supreme Court ruled on such a case. Because I had a strong interest in this ruling, I studied past judgments and the theory relevant to these decisions.
