Insurance companies are exempted from making insurance payment in the event of cars meeting with accidents outside the country, unless there is a provision in the policy that states otherwise, ruled Dubai Court of Cassation. In a new legal principle, the Court confirmed that if the insured car meets with an accident outside the UAE, the insurance company will be exempted from paying compensation to the insurer, unless the condition in the insurance policy states insurance coverage even outside UAE. The court issued the new principle in its verdict when it accepted an appeal of one of the insurance companies, which was ordered to pay Dh300,000 to the plaintiff for an accident that occurred in Oman. The woman filed a case against a car rental company, the driver and the insurance firm. She requested the court to order the three parties to pay her Dh1.5 million as compensation for damages she suffered.
