Liability / Accident Insurance


Description

In addition to health insurance coverage, which is mandatory to have in Germany, as international students are not permitted to enrol at German higher education institutions without it, it is also wise to take out a liability / accident insurance, so that you are protected against the risks of everyday life. 

What is a liability insurance?

In Germany, there is a law which states that every person is liable for loss or damage he/she causes to others. The damaging party will be held liable with his/her salary, his/her savings or even with his/her possessions and property. The liability insurance will cover such damages, except insofar as a damage was caused intentionally.  

 What is an accident insurance?

'Most accidents occur at home' says a German proverb. This might be the fall from a ladder while you are trying to change a bulb, or it might also be a serious road accident when you are driving by car. The accident insurance provides insurance benefits to you in case of disability or even to your surviving dependants in case of death.
