Two Wheeler/ Third Party Insurance

A third party insurance policy offers coverage for any bodily injury to third party or any damage to the third party property. In event of an accident claims can be raised by the third party for damages, therefore having a third party insurance plan protects you from such costs. It is also mandatory under the Motor Vehicle Act 1988 that all the drivers on the road need to have valid third party insurance at all times.

How does third party insurance work

First party is the insured person, second person is the insurance company and the third person is the victim. In event of an accident, if the third party feels that you are responsible for the damage he/she has suffered, then they might raise a claim against you. If you are having third party insurance policy then insurance company provides coverage against the financial liabilities.
