German term or phrase: Schadensersatzansprüche des Auftragebers bleiben unberührt.
Urgent help needed!

The problem sentence is an entire clause from a contract.

The sentence is very simple - I just don't understand why it is there! What does it mean legally?

To the initiated. the previous clause hold the key:

Zur Sicherstellung etwaiger Ersatzansprüche aus diesem Vertrag ist vom Auftragnehmer bei Vertragsabschluss eine Haftpflichtversicherung nachzuweisen. Die Haftsummen müssen mindestens betragen:

DM 2.000.000- für Personenschäden
DM 1.00.000,- für sonstige Schäden.

Explanation:
As for the why, which may affect the way you word the problem sentence, I think they mean that, although the contractor has to show proof of insurance in the amounts listed, that doesn't mean that the client isn't entitled to be compensated for his or her losses (regardless of the amount).

Explanation:
From the text that comes beforehand, it is said that the seller must have third-party liability insurance for protection from any damage claims. The maximum liability must not exceed the amounts enumerated. The damage claims of the buyer, on the other hand, will remain unaffected. It means that the buyer may make damage claims that are not restricted to the liability limitations the seller is bound by.

Hope that helps.
