Swedish term or phrase: Skadeförsäkringsrörelsens
I am trying to decide if all-casualty insurance or simply property damage insurance would be a better translation for "skadeförsäkring"

Any suggestions?

Explanation:
The translation of "skadeförsäkring" is "non-life insurance". Your two suggestions do both define sectors of the non-life insurance business, and are consequently both wrong.
