Business civil liability insurance
Every day your employees are working on your own company sites or at clients. Unfortunately, not all activities run smoothly all the time. Third parties may also be victims of an accident or carelessness caused by you or one of your employees. Accidents can happen easily, but the financial consequences can be dire.
Protect yourself and your business against damage to third parties with business civil liability (BA) insurance. The policy consists of four parts:
Civil liability for commercial operations: covers damage to third parties while carrying out a professional activity.
Civil liability for entrusted property: covers damage to goods and tools entrusted for carrying out works
Civil liability for subsequent delivery: covers damage to third parties caused by a defective product or work that has been carried out.
Legal assistance: covers lawyer’s fees and legal costs in the event of prosecution or own recovery from the liable party

Liability with regard to employment practice errors: protects directors and employees in cases of claims for damages for discrimination in the workplace, wrongful dismissal or suspected sexual harassment.

What about contractual liability? What happens when contractual obligations are not met?
Is the claim well-founded? What is the actual damage and what is the liability limitation? What exactly was agreed in the cooperation contract?
Professional indemnity insurance protects your company against damage resulting from advice, calculations or actions.
For whom is a professional indemnity policy useful?
A professional indemnity policy is mandatory for certain regulated professions, such as lawyers and architects.
Other professions such as IT and business consultants can also benefit from this policy.
It is useful for all service providers, especially in the medical, legal and financial sectors.
