Despite the key in the mobile home: Comprehensive insurance remains subject to payment!

If the key to an RV is left in the unlocked vehicle due to a communication breakdown, it is not gross negligence, and the comprehensive insurance is obliged to cover the damage. This is currently indicated by a judgment by the Hamm Higher Regional Court (Az.: 6 U 107/21), which is emphasized by the ADAC. In the case in question, a mobile home had been stolen while a couple were traveling in it. The casco insurance was supposed to compensate for the damage, but refused to pay because the key was demonstrably left in the unlocked vehicle. The insurer saw this as gross negligence. The couple concerned disputed the view and filed a lawsuit.
