Law/Patents - Law (general) / insurance
German term or phrase: Vrschrer sind nch Maßgabe dr Beträge verpflt, drn Zhlng dm Vgsnehmer ggbr vertragsmäßig obliegt
This is from § 59 (2) VVG [the same wording as § 787 HGB] "Die Versicherer sind im Verhältnis zueinander zu Anteilen nach Maßgabe der Beträge verpflichtet, deren Zahlung ihnen dem Versicherungsnehmer gegenüber vertragsmäßig obliegt."

Can anybody give me a few hints?

TIA
