- In most cases, the legal assistance offered by Ration does not entail any costs for Kunstenbond members. However, it may happen that legal proceedings are inevitable in order to achieve a proper outcome. For example, when the insurer of the liable party refuses to compensate the damage while Ratio’s experts believe that this is unjustified. The costs associated with the legal proceedings will then be borne by the member of de Kunstenbond. A request for a financial contribution can be submitted to the board (members only).
- Prior to a claim, a critical assessment will take place by an expert from Ratio. In most cases an acceptable claim is established without the need to litigate. However in some cases only legal proceedings can achieve the desired results.
- If the member has a legal expenses insurance that is willing to pay the legal costs, then Ratio is obliged to invoke this.
- De Kunstenbond has no financial provisions for these kinds of issues. The request for financial contribution can therefore be rejected by the board. If necessary, de Kunstenbond can refer the member to external lawyers.
