If the owner is guilty of flood, fire or other accident affecting the neighborhood and its property, the insurance company will indemnify loss instead of the owner. Most often it not only helps save the family budget of the insured, but also good relationship with your neighbors' – commented Aleksandr Yaremenko, Head of Transport Risk Underwriting, Allianz Ukraine.
