New Traffic Law

Auto Claims
With the help of several Spanish speakers, we have translated the original document for your convenience and not with the intention of interpreting or enforcing the law. We have also added our own comments in order to make the legal information easier to understand. This translation is not valid for legal purposes.

Article 1. When a minor traffic accident (fender bender) occurs in the public ways of the country, the drivers involved should move the vehicle out of the way, after exchanging the Unique and Final Form that is described in article 4. (Have several forms in your car partially filled).

Article 2. Regarding the previous article, a minor traffic accident is any collision that happens between one or more motor vehicles where damages, produced by the impact, allow the vehicles to be moved out of the way by their drivers as long as no one involved is injured, otherwise article 5 will apply.

Article 3. The “Autoridad de Transito y Transporte Terrestre” (Terrestrial Traffic and Transportation Authority) along with the “Departamento de Operaciones de Transito de la Direccion Nacional de Operaciones de la Policia Nacional” (National Office of Operations, Traffic Operations Department of the National Police) will provide a Unique and Final Form, which will be used by the drivers involved in minor traffic accidents (fender benders), in order to compile all necessary information necessary to determine responsibility.

STROKE IDENTIFICATION

Health Insurance During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone
that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) .she said she had
just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she
appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the
evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken
to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had
suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of
a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die.. They end
up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

Will my US/Canada Life Policy Pay?

Life InsuranceThe standard USA/Canada life insurance contract has only a few major exclusions. There are no geographical restrictions, but some companies may exclude death as a result of war, hazardous activity, failure to pay the premium or aviation. For the beneficiary to be paid, a valid certificate of death/proof of death and return of the original policy is all that is needed to receive the benefits. You may die in Manchuria or on the moon, as long as you obtain a valid death certificate. Some local Panama companies will even advance a small amount ($2,000) to the beneficiary to help with funeral expenses based on a newspaper article.

Confusion may stem from Expats residing in Panama who wish to APPLY for life insurance in the USA. Some US/Canada companies do not wish to issue a NEW policy to foreign residents.

Panama VA Benefits!

Health InsuranceHere is an interesting exchange on the ExpatHealth Yahoo Group, between Craig Morrissey, Executive VP of Hospial Nacional and a veteran asking about VA Benefits in Panama:

Sorry, I just joined the group and I'm sure this has been discussed, but I'm
a Vet with VA benefits (not Tricare). We were told by Mae Lewis Hospital in
David via email that I could transfer my VA benefits to that hospital.
Unfortunately, before sitting down with them, we rented a house in David.
Now after meeting with them last week I'm not sure what we have!
They referred me to someone in Panama City, close to Hospital Nacional that
has told me he can help.
Can anyone give me some insight as to the real situation in Panama?
Thank you,
Jeff
