Property insurance covers all sudden and unforeseen damage to company’s property, which is not excluded in the terms and conditions.
Business interruption insurance
Business interruption insurance covers damage caused by the interruption or disruption of company’s business activity resulting from damage to company’s property.
General third party liability insurance
The general third party liability insurance cover is among others needed by property owners and managers, service providers, industrial companies, educational and leisure institutions and shopping centres. We will reimburse for material damage caused to a third party in the course of an activity covered by the insurance policy.
Employer’s liability insurance
The employer’s liability insurance is needed by all employers, as accidents at work and occupational diseases do not only affect manual workers.
We will reimburse the employer for claims made by an employee for compensation for material damage caused by an accident at work during the insurance period or a medical diagnosis of on occupational diseases in the event of additional coverage.
How does insurance cover sudden and unforeseen risks?
Risk mitigation usually starts with internal risk management. The company assesses the risks in the best interests of the preservation of its assets and the potential risks associated with its business activities. Inevitably, sudden and unforeseen events will occur, which can have unintended consequences.
LHV corporate insurance comes to the rescue to address these consequences. In this way, we reimburse you for any damage to your company’s assets, lost operating profits as a result of an accident and third-party claims. Thus, insurance reduces the risk of financial loss and ensures the sustainability of the business.
How does business interruption insurance cover mitigate a company’s financial risks?
Often the damage to property is much less than the business interruption it causes. To make it easier for your business to manage, for example, fixed costs during a business interruption, we recommend taking out business interruption insurance.
With LHV corporate insurance you can insure property damage caused by an insured event:
- loss of operating profit;
- loss of rental and leasing income;
- fixed costs for the period during which the economic activity of your business is interrupted or limited;
- other agreed costs.
How does the liability insurance cover the risks of owning property?
Owners of immovable property and the buildings on it have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their buildings and structures and the upkeep of the property. For example, the owner is liable for damage to parts of a building, including the falling of icicles and snow.
In the event of an insured event, we will reimburse claims from third parties and related legal assistance and expert fees.
How to manage risks as an employer?
An accident at work or an occupational disease can result in significant material damage to an employee. In the event of an accident or occupational disease involving an employee, the employer has a legal liability and an obligation to reimburse the employee for the damage suffered.
Under an employer’s liability insurance contract, we will reimburse claims made against the employer based on an accident at work or an occupational disease diagnosed in the employee.
Please notify us of any increase in insurance risk as soon as possible. To do this, please call 699 9111 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Examples of an increase in insurance risk are:
- changes in the company’s business activities;
- investment in new assets;
- construction work on the insurance site;
- changes in the number of employees and the turnover forecast.
Insurance deductible is the amount of money per claim agreed in the insurance contract, which is borne by you as the policyholder.
If the insured object has been damaged or destroyed as a result of more than one insured event, the insurance deductible will be calculated separately for each insured event.
All losses, including claims arising from the same sudden and unforeseen event, will be subject to a single, maximum insurance deductible.
- The insurance deductible for property insurance is usually 500 euros.
- The insurance deductible for business interruption insurance is the waiting period, which is usually the first 72 hours from the start of the insured event.
- The insurance deductible for professional and employer’s liability insurance is generally 500 euros.
- There is no insurance deductible for legal expenses.
The amount of the insurance deductible is worth considering when assessing the financial capacity of your company. As a general rule, the higher the insurance deductible, the lower the premium.
Damage assistance and prevention
In the event of a property and business interruption claim, we will reimburse the reasonable costs of loss prevention and mitigation, even if they did not produce the desired result. The indemnity limit is 10% of the sum insured on the insured object, up to a maximum of 300,000 euros.
If the amount of the costs exceeds the sum insured for the insured object, we will separately reimburse these additional costs up to a maximum of 100,000 euros per insured event.
We will reimburse the legal costs of claims against your company, even if the claim is later found to be unfounded. We do not apply an insurance deductible for legal assistance costs.
