Explanation:

II. Erfüllung von Verpflichtungen durch Dritte

Gesetzliche Vertreter sind insbesondere ...........

Bedeutender ist die Haftung für Pflichtverletzungen von Erfüllungsgehilfen. Das sind Personen, die von dem Schuldner als seine Hilfspersonen bei der Erfüllung seiner Verbindlichkeiten eingesetzt werden. Dabei muß zwischen Schuldner und Gehilfen kein Vertragsverhältnis oder Abhängigkeitsverhältnis bestehen; Erfüllungsgehilfe ist also auch jemand, der lediglich aus Gefälligkeit hilft.

damage/loss occurrence - person employed - performance - at fault


Explanation:
... for a damage/loss occurrence for which a

servant (Hamblock/Wessels) /

assistant (Hamblock/Wessels) /

vicarious agent (this is a legal term from Eichborn, not what you are thinking) /

person employed in performing an obligation for whom the principal is vicariously liable (Romain)

is solely / totally / completely / entirely responsible / at fault ...

The above is a bit confusing, I would probably choose:

... for a damage/loss occurrence for which a person employed in the performance of an obligation is solely at fault ...

Dictionaries by Hamblock/Wessels – Zahn – Romain - Eichborn

- HTH - Dan
