3.50. Position in Nordic countries.-

For example, in many Nordic countries,1 the liability of the company to pay under a motor vehicle accident policy is limited to maximum amount, either as regards personal injury or as regards property or as regards both. The limits have been gradually increased in step with the inflation and with the general rise in the standard of living. By way of illustration, we may set out the limits in some of the Nordic countries which are understood to be as follows:

For each person injured For all damage to property in the same accident
National Currency U.S. Dollars (Approx.) National Currency U.S. Dollars(Approx.)
