Liability Law

There are many situations in which liability law plays a role. Think, for example, of the situation in which an employee suffers an accident in the context of or during the performance of his work. In such case, the employer can sometimes be held legally liable towards the employee for the damage that is suffered. In some cases, manufacturers may be held liable. This is the case when a consumer suffers damage and it is established that the damage was caused by a defect in the product. Also, a director of a company may in certain cases be held personally liable in addition to or instead of the company.

Employer liability

If an employee suffers an accident during or in connection with the performance of his work, the employer may be legally liable to the employee for the damage that has occurred. This is because the employer has a special obligation of care when the work is carried out. He is liable for damage suffered by an employee during the performance of his work, unless he can demonstrate that he has fulfilled his obligation of care. If the employer can demonstrate that he has taken all reasonable measures to prevent an accident, he is not liable. Also, in situations that the employee has been intentionally or deliberately reckless, the employer cannot be blamed. We look at all facts and circumstances and will be happy to help you if you are held liable as an employer or if you want to hold your employer liable for damage that is suffered.

Product liability

When you have purchased a product, you expect it to be solid. You do not expect that its use will harm you. Unfortunately, this can still happen. You can think of damage caused by a defective machine, food and other consumer products.

The manufacturer is legally liable for the damage when it is proven that the damage was caused by a defect in the product. A product is regarded as defective if it does not offer the safety you are expecting from it. If you have suffered damage as a result of a defective product, we will be happy to offer you legal support.

Director’s liability

In principle, the company is liable for debts that are incurred. However, a director of a company may in certain cases be held personally liable in addition to or instead of the company. A director is in fact obliged to perform his duties properly. If you are held liable as a director of a legal entity, the consequences can be substantial. Law & More assists directors who are faced with or threaten with liability accusations. We also assist parties who want to hold a director legally liable.

Liability lawFault-based liability

This kind of liability is based on fault or negligence. If you have suffered damage, we will be happy to help you hold the person who caused this damage legally liable. You can also contact us for legal support if you are held liable by someone else for causing damage.

Professional liability

When a self-employed professional, such as a doctor, accountant or notary, makes a professional mistake, he or she can be held legally liable towards clients or patients. But in which cases does such a professional misconduct occur? This is a complex question. The answer depends on all the facts and circumstances of the case.

If you are a self-employed professional and you are held liable for a professional mistake, we will be glad to help you.
