What is the purpose of liability insurance?
It can easily happen in everyday life that a private person who is the owner of an apartment or a house causes losses to other persons: by leaving the water running, damaging thus the neighbour˙s freshly renovated apartment; by failing to treat the slippery road in front of the house with sand, causing thus the fall of another person. The person who caused the loss must compensate it, even if the loss was caused unintentionally and the person who caused the loss incurs huge expenses. Liability insurance helps to compensate such losses.
Which losses are compensated by liability insurance?
Liability insurance compensates the owner of an apartment or a house within the amounts he must pay for losses caused by his or his family member˙s (spouse, children) fault or negligence. Insurance covers the amounts that are related both with property damage and personal injury or death.
