Insurance & Liability

The basic principle of liability law is that the damage actually suffered must be compensated in full. The damage consists of material damage, financial damage (e.g. loss or lost profit) and/or immaterial damage. In principle, the costs of your lawyer or attorney also fall within the damages to be claimed.

Damage Compensation

Usually, the person who is held liable is insured for the damages he or she has caused. In addition to the damage already suffered, an insurance policy also takes future damages into account. For example, future loss of income due to a missed promotion. Case law shows that missed opportunities may also be taken into account.

You – as the injured party – will always have to demonstrate what damage you have suffered and will suffer in the future. LexQuire is eminently capable to assist you in this respect. The specialists have mastered this discipline in the minutest detail and operate at the highest level.

Personal injury

This damage may be caused by a traffic accident, medical errors or industrial accident and may include physical injuries or psychological problems. Oftentimes, you can hold the person or organisation that caused the damage liable.

Director’ liability

Directors and supervisory directors are increasingly held liable. The management of a legal entity entails more and more risks. This does not only apply to directors of large (listed) companies. Directors of small and medium-sized companies, associations and foundations also have exposure. In some cases, the risks can lead to personal liability of a director.

Personal liability

In principle, a director is only personally liable if he can be seriously blamed for the respective action of the legal entity. More often insolvency practitioners and creditors are succeeding in holding a director liable. This liability may lie in a faulty incorporation of the company, improper administration, harming creditors, entering into obligations lightly or paying tax debts late. As a director (or even officer) of a legal entity, it is important to know in advance the nature and extent of such risks.

Prevention or mitigation

It is important for directors or members of the supervisory board to know in advance the nature and extent of the risks. This allows you to anticipate possible liabilities.
