But, wait, what is DPVAT Insurance? The acronym comes from Personal Injury Insurance Caused by Land Vehicle Automotive . And it is mandatory according to Decree-Law No. 73, of November 1966, regulating all insurance and reinsurance operations.
In the case, this insurance guarantees indemnification for victims of accidents caused by automobiles . It covers cases of accidents involving death and permanent disability. In addition to also guarantee reimbursement in cases of medical and supplementary expenses.
