Liability law

Has your company/business been made liable? Is a company, person or employee claiming damages from you? Or has your own company or business suffered damage (such as trading loss) that you want to recover from another party?

Receiving a claim

Liability Law is closely related to Insurance Law. Generally, you will have to report a claim based on the policy conditions to the liability insurer of your company. Subsequently, your insurer will (or should) process the claim and issue a defence (in consultation with you, of course).

Should the insurance agency reject the claim (wrongly) or if the claim is lower than the insured excess, then you will have to issue your own defence. In such a case, it is wise to have one of our Insurance Law and Liability Law experts assist you so the liability claim can be averted or at least limited to a minimum.

Your company has a claim

If your company suffered damage and you wish to recover this damage from another party, then chances are you will be confronted with a range of parties and various liability insurers. These will sometimes point you towards each other and/or simply reject your claim.

What follows is a legal joust with long discussions regarding expiration, the obligation to complain, liability, causal relationships, and extent of the damage. Who needs to prove what? Which party is liable, or are there several liable parties? Is it necessary to employ an expert?

This is the field where our specialist lawyers of the Insurance Law and Liability Law branch feel at home. Our lawyers have the required knowledge and experience to ensure a worry-free legal experience in the most complex situations with a host of different parties, legal standpoints and defences and still ensure that you receive compensation.

Our branch has been acting on the behalf of insured persons of one of the biggest professional liability insurers of the Netherlands throughout the country for decades. On top of that, they have a lot of experience in conducting proceedings in (disciplinary) court and disputes committees.
