How to better prevent and cope with traffic accidents is a cruel reality people have to confront. The newly promulgated Road Traffic Safety Law of the Republic of China is beyond doubt a huge step forward. However, on the whole that law is still a law with no specific regulations on the issue of road traffic accident damage compensation. Based on analysis of the necessity of studying road traffic damage compensation liability, the thesis advances the issue of imputation when there is road traffic accident damage in the first place Given the legislation practice of several countries, it points out that the criterion of liability China now adopts is a combination of fault liability principle and no-fault liability principle, which is a relatively advanced legislation.The thesis points out five indispensable constituents are required for the road traffic accident damage liability to exist: road, vehicle, transportation, damage and casualty. The compensation main body of road traffic accidents is complicated due to the various owner and user relationships concerning the vehicle. The thesis studies and defines the compensating main body of road traffic accidents in various complicated circumstances respectively.After defining the road traffic accident compensation liability, the issue of compensation is prominent. The thesis suggests overall compensation and fault balancing principles as the main principle in road traffic accident compensation.
