Insurance Law

Whether insurance agreements offer the desired security or not only becomes apparent in the event of loss. In addition to frequently tedious, drawn-out claim assessments, insurers generally only perform a legal review of the contractual situation after damage occurs. Their result may be, for example, that the loss is not held to be covered by the insurance, that there is a sub-insurance policy or that the customer is said to have not communicated changes in the insured risks. Partial reduction or even elimination of insurance benefits by the insurer can quickly translate into an acute threat to economic viability. This is especially the case when the reduction in benefits (also) relates to the insurance policy for business interruption, whose entire purpose is after all to compensate for loss of earnings quickly after a damage incident.

It is also necessary to quickly and reliably clear up the obligation of the insurer to meet claims after a damage incident in the case of general liability insurance policies as well. This may relate to liability claims that are asserted against enterprises, but also  liability claims that directly threaten the financial situation of managing directors or management boards/supervisory boards and for which a D&O insurance policy has been taken out.
