The Jibaiseki Hoken(automobile third party liability insurance)@and  Voluntary Insurance

@

The Jibaiseki Hoken is compulsory when you purchase an automobile.

Indemnity covered by the Jibaiseki Hoken is limited to traffic accidents involving death or bodily injury of the victim.

Damages to objects of the victim, such as watches, cars, or buildings will not be indemnified.

As indemnity is limited to damages to the victim, the driver at fault and the passenger on board will not be covered by the Jibaiseki Hoken taken out on his or her vehicle.

Therefore, voluntary automobile insurance is recommendable to cover what the Jibaiseki does not include.

 If drivers at fault have taken out voluntary automobile insurance policies (payment ceilings have been fixed by the Jibaiseki Hoken scheme), insurance companies deal with the claims of the Jibaiseki Hoken at the same time and provide lump-sum payments.
