Motor TPL insurance is regulated by the Motor Insurance Act. An insured event is defined as causing damage to a third party, provided that the following circumstances occurred at the same time:
- the damage was caused on the road or in another area used for conventional vehicle traffic;
- the damage was caused by a vehicle that is subject to the insurance obligation;
- there is a causal link between the movement or location of the vehicle and the damage caused.
A motor TPL insurance contract can be concluded for a period of up to one year. You can select an automatically renewed contract. To confirm the validity of the insurance cover, we will issue you a motor TPL insurance policy.
We will indemnify the motor TPL insurance client as follows per insured event:
- up to 1,200,000 euros for property damage resulting from the destruction of or damage to the property (regardless of the number of persons incurring damage);
- up to 5,600,000 euros in the event of personal injury (i.e. causing personal injury, damage to health or death).

Suppose you have also been issued a green card. In that case, insurance cover is valid in EEA countries and also Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Israel, Iran, Macedonia, Morocco, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.

- damage caused on a road or in another area used for conventional vehicle traffic at a time when the area was closed for public traffic;

The insured vehicle in normal use must not be used as a rental vehicle or a taxi; for car-sharing services; or as a training, emergency, courier or security patrol vehicle. If you want to provide such services with your vehicle, indicate the relevant use in the insurance contract.
Inform LHV Insurance of any potential increase in the insured risk at the earliest opportunity. An increase in the insured risk is, for example, sale of the vehicle to a new owner, a change in the use of the vehicle, conversion or tuning of the vehicle, or loss of the vehicle keys.
If you have chosen to pay the insurance policy in instalments, pay the instalments by the due dates specified in the policy. In case of non-payment, we have the right to withdraw from the contract or cancel it in accordance with the procedure provided for in the Law of Obligations Act. If the paid insurance premium (including an instalment) is less than the amount due as specified in the policy, the insurance premium shall be deemed not to have been paid.
If you have chosen an automatically extended insurance contract, you will have to notify us at least two days before the end of the current insurance period if you want to terminate the contract. If LHV is not notified, the contract will be automatically extended for the next period.
