This article deals with the functions of civil liability in cases of breaching personal non-property rights. The analysis of civil liability in Lithuanian and German law reveals that in both countries damages are awarded on the basis on the principle of compensation and prohibition of unjust enrichment, but in Germany law damages for the violation of personal non-property rights are also awarded taking into consideration the preventive function. The main aim of this paper is to determine whether there are conditions, need and basis for the application of the preventive function in Lithuanian law. In the first part of this article it is analyzed the factors that determine the application of the preventive function, i.e. the change of civil relations; the need for effective legal protection and the aim to ensure the legitimate behavior of the subjects of civil law. The second part explains the relationship between the compensatory, punitive and preventive functions. The last part of the article analyzes the demand of the preventive function and the purposes of civil liability in Lithuanian law in terms of awarding to reward non-pecuniary damages for the violation of personal non-property rights.
