Smairat clarified that such vehicles are exempt from compensation.

Speaking to Al-Mamlaka TV on Monday, Smairat emphasized that when it comes to hail damage or incidents classified as natural disasters, the insurance policy acts as the foundation for determining compensation between the vehicle owner and the insurance company.

Under these circumstances, the affected parties should not expect to receive compensation for the damages.

Coverage variation in comprehensive insurance policies
Regarding comprehensive insurance, Smairat further explained that coverage for natural disasters varies depending on the terms outlined in the insurance contract.

Some policies provide comprehensive coverage for such events, while others do not. Therefore, it is crucial for policyholders to review their specific insurance agreements to understand the extent of coverage for hail-related damages.

Recent hailstorms damaged numerous vehicles in various areas of Amman. The severe weather conditions caused shattered glass and inflicted damage on different parts of the affected vehicles.
