High penalties – lifelong consequences
In fact, this “kick” is a criminal offense. Damage to property (§ 125 StGB) and serious damage to property (§ 126 StGB) are involved here, points out the Austrian insurance association VVO.
Penalties ranging from six months to five years are envisaged. Not to be forgotten are also the civil law actions of the injured parties, which the perpetrator often cannot repay for a lifetime due to the high damage.
