Image damage

In case of fire or explosion, you can guarantee ample compensation to those present. This way, you limit image damage.

No fault of the operator even has to be shown

In the event of an explosion or fire, the operator is obliged to compensate the victims for the damage. Even without the victims having to prove the fault of the operator.

What does objective liability insurance cover?

Objective liability means that a person suffering damage due to fire or explosion does not have to prove that you are at fault.

In contrast, you are obliged to compensate the claimant for both physical and property damage, even if you are not at fault.
