The compulsory insurance system for vehicles covers all motor accidents by vehicles that are fully insured unless they constitute a felony or intentional misdemeanour, the director of the Insurance Department of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply, Mr Wael Mahadin, has said.
In a statement to the Jordan News Agency, he says that vehicles that are fully insured are covered by the insurance contract concluded between the customer and the insurer.
He also explains that insurance companies are obligated to compensate for damages and injuries caused by snow, indicating that snow is not considered an exception in the mandatory motor insurance system.
He adds that insurance companies have begun to cover accidents that resulted from the recent snowy weather conditions, according to the mandatory insurance system in force.
Between 17 February to 21 February, the Kingdom witnessed snowfall in several areas. In one instance on 17 February, over 600 cars were stuck in a traffic jam due to the accumulation of snow and bad weather conditions, and on 21 February, a total of 429 traffic accidents were reported.
