Who needs personal liability insurance?

Actually, this insurance needs every adult or family.

Who is insured?

You are insured as policyholder. In the family tariffs spouse and children are automatically insured. Many insurance companies also include the life partner as soon as he is registered with the policyholder. In children it does not matter if they are the biological, adoptive or stepchildren.

Beware of single policies: These usually only apply to the policyholder.

What is insured?

The private liability insurance indemnifies legitimate claims for damages that are made to you in the event of damage. She does even more. The insurance companies check whether the claims are justified and in the case of the trap, they repel them. In this case, legal proceedings can also be conducted by the insurer. The costs are borne by the insurer. Insured are in principle personal injury and property damage. In some tariffs rent damages (for example 200.000,00 €) and pecuniary damages (for example 20.000,00 €) with lower sums are automatically included.

What should the coverage amount be?

Since private liability insurance is not a legally required insurance, you can choose the amount of coverage as you wish. From 1 million to 10 million, the range of insurers is diversified. A lower chosen coverage seems sufficient at first glance. However, you should remember one thing: The private liability insurance does not release you from a claim for damages. Anyone who damages a person so that it becomes a care case, so the insurance pays the agreed amount or until it is exhausted. After that, stick with your private assets.
