Compensation and insurance
Have you incurred financial loss and are wondering whether you may be entitled to compensation? Or has someone filed a claim for compensation against you?
Compensation claims and liability may arise as a result of actions and omissions or on an objective basis. The party that is injured or incurs a financial loss may have insurance that pays financial compensation for the injury or loss. Liability may be imposed on businesses, individuals, the public sector and other legal entities.
There is a close correlation between compensation and insurance law and, in cases where personal injury occurs, also with social security law. In many cases, liability will be wholly or partly covered by insurance. The party that is injured or incurs a financial loss may have insurance that pays financial compensation for the injury or loss. In many cases, the wrongdoer will also have insurance in place that can be used.
