Haftpflichtversicherung is the name given to liability insurance in Germany.
Some forms of Haftpflichtversicherung are compulsary, such as 3rd party insurance for cars.Â Certain career groups such as lawyers, tax advisors, auditors and hunters are also required to have the relevant type of insurance.
Many people have a Privathaftpflichtversicherung – a liability insurance for individuals or families to cover themselves, eg. in case they damage a rented flat or knock over a display in a shop.
Pet owners in particular may consider the Tierhalterhaftpflichtversicherung, especially if they have pets that they take outside with them.
