Clause 17-50. The insurer’s rights in the event of liability

By the term “the liability amount” is meant the lowest of the injured party’s claim, the limitation amount under the law and the insurer’s maximum liability under Cl. 17-54.

Sub-clause 2 refers to the mandatory provision in Section 7-8 of the Norwegian Insurance Contracts Act. The fact that the injured party does not otherwise have a direct claim against the insurer appears from Cl. 4-17, sub-clause 1.
