The German Insurance Association and the association Verkehrsopferhilfe e.V. welcome the EU Commission's efforts in providing even better protection for victims of traffic accidents and strengthening policyholders' rights.
However, the German insurance industry sees the need for an adjust-ment of certain proposals. This concerns
- the scope of the Motor Insurance Directive (MID), (Art. 1 No. 1a),
- the minimum amounts of cover (Art. 9),
- the protection of victims in the event of an insolvency of an MTPL insurer (Art. 10a) and
- statements relating to the third party liability claims (Art. 16).
