Italian term or phrase: sin. concursuale
This is the title of a little box to the right of the claims listings (which actually show no claims made)

Underneath it are two columns showing %resp. & Malus, so I is this something to do with the balance of liability of some sort?

Contributory negligence
Explanation:
Sin. is short for sinistro and concursuale refers to a car accident where the liability is divided among all the parties involved. The %resp. indicates how much one party contributed to create the accident

liability/accountability % is fine, "claim contribution" IMO isn't.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contributory_negligence
The contributory negligence defense can potentially eliminate the defendant's responsibility to pay damages to an injured plaintiff. For example, a pedestrian crosses a road negligently and is hit by a driver who was driving negligently. Since the pedestrian has also contributed to the accident, they may be barred from complete and full recovery of damages from the driver (or their insurer) because the accident was less likely to occur if it hadn't been for their failure to keep a proper lookout.
Contributory fault means more or less the same but it is mainly used in the settling of contracts

Asker: Thank you. I have not sent this off yet, but I called it "claim contribution" and used "liability %". Would that work or is "negligence" an important word here?

Asker: Thank you.
