Emergency payouts for Malaga fire victims

insurance for fire victims spain

THE Spanish government has pushed through an emergency law allowing fire victims to claim up to €18,000 in compensation.

The new legislation – which applies to all those affected by wildfires across Spain since June – will allow victims two months to submit their claim, rather than the previous one month cut-off.

Aid applications will also be processed in three months rather than six as part of a revamped system designed to fast-track the claims process.

Payments will range from €18,000 in the event of death or serious injury, to €2,580 for damage to essential household goods.

Those who have lost their homes will receive a maximum of €15,120, while businesses could be in line for a payout of up to €8,000.
