ST, Doha


According to Article 803 of the civil laws, in fire insurance, the insurer shall be responsible for all damages arising from the fire or from the start of a fire that can become a complete fire or for a fire risk that can materialize. Its liability shall not be limited to the damages arising directly from the fire but also covers the damages that arise as an inevitable result thereof, particularly the damages caused to insured property by reason of using methods of rescue or of prevention of the extension of fire. It shall also be liable for loss or disappearance of insured items during the fire unless it proves that this has taken place as a result of a theft even if there is an agreement to the contrary.
