Claims under the Product Liability Act are also not affected by this limitation of liability. This limitation of liability applies equally to breaches of duty by our organs and vicarious agents.
The claim for damages for the breach of essential contractual obligations is limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, unless intent or gross negligence exists or we are liable for injury to life, limb or health.
The above limitations of liability also apply to claims for reimbursement of futile expenses (§ 284 BGB). A change in the burden of proof to your disadvantage is not associated with the above provisions.
