General rules

First and foremost, it must be remembered that insurance recognizes the case in which the owner of the insurance policy in the result of a traffic accident caused damage to property, health or life of another person. That is, buying insurance policy, insures the driver not the car, and themselves, and most importantly the condition of payment of insurance payments - the presence of fault of the insured person. Roughly speaking, if in an accident do not blame you, and the other side, the insurance payout needs to provide the insurance company of that party.

The damage to property of another person

The most common insurance event is a damage to property of another person (i.e. the car) in the accident. If there is a traffic accident, the insurance company of the culprit needs to contact the victim.

Also non-refundable expenses that the injured party incurred in connection with the accident (for example, the cost of calling a tow truck). It should be noted that the current legislation establishes the following maximum amounts of insurance compensation: for compensation of damages caused to property of several persons - no more than 160 thousand rubles, and for compensation of damages caused to the property of one person is not more than 120 thousand rubles. Damage and expenses, which will not cover the outstanding amount, shall be reimbursed guilty of causing the damage yourself.

The bodily injury

In this case, the insurance company of the culprit will be obliged to compensate the victim for past lost earnings (income), expenses incurred by the victim in connection with bodily injury (for example, costs of medicines, surgery, Spa treatment and even retraining for another profession in connection with deterioration of health). All the above expenses must be proven by the injured party. In addition, the victim will have to prove the lack of rights to free getting paid for drugs/services, etc. the amount you pay the insurance company, may not exceed 160 thousand roubles to everyone in need of the treatment of the victim.

Upon the occurrence of such insured event, the insurance company of the culprit will be obliged to pay to 135 thousand rubles people having the right to compensation of harm in case of death of the breadwinner (most often, it's close relatives). In addition, the insurance company is obliged to reimburse the funeral expenses of the deceased, but the amount should not exceed 25 thousand rubles.
