The insurer, who has provided the MTPL insurance policy, shall indemnify the victim for both material and non-material damage (moral harm).

The material damage to be indemnified for the victim are:

  • for medical expenses;
  • lost income due to temporary disability;
  • lost income due to incapacity of work.

The non-material damage to be indemnified for the victim is moral harm, related to the suffering and pain for:

  • bodily injury;
  • maiming or disability.

The material damage to be indemnified for the relatives of the deceased victim are:

  • lost income of the deceased person, which each dependent was due while the victim was alive;
  • burial expenses.

The non-material damage to be indemnified Bo for the relatives of the deceased victim is moral harm, related to the suffering and pain for:

  • death of the provider, dependent or spouse;
  • I group disability of the provider or the dependent.

European Union law requires Member States to establish equal guarantees for victims of traffic accidents, irrespective of their nationality and country of residence. However, at present the amount of insurance indemnity prescribed by the laws and regulations of the Republic of Latvia is disproportionately low and does not comply with the requirements of the European Union legislation. In addition, it has been observed in practice that very often victims (residents of Latvia) receive inadequate compensation from foreign insurance companies, as foreign insurers usually pay considerably higher insurance claims to their citizens in similar situations.

To be eligible for insurance indemnity, you must be familiar with the European Union insurance legislation as well as the national laws of the country where the traffic accident took place and insurance indemnity case practice.

The Association wants to ensure fair treatment of insurers and fair payment of insurance indemnity to each victim. We work to support every single victim and their loved ones so that everyone involved in the accident receives adequate insurance coverage for the loss and moral harm.
