The insurance amount is negotiated as single (for one occurrence) and aggregate (for the period of insurance).
Damages are estimated on the grounds of claims in writing first filed throughout the duration of the insurance policy, provided that the events, with regard to which a claim has been filed, have occurred after the commencement date of the insurance policy, or after the retroactive date as written in the policy (if any stipulated).
The insurance also provides coverage for all costs related to the settlement of claims as far as approved by the Insurer.
A settlement between the damaged party and the insured party, as well as an admission on the part of the insured party of his or her obligations, have effect on the insurer if he approves them.
