If the victim of an accident has signed an agreement with the insurer for compulsory Civil Liability Insurance, in which he has stated that he is fully compensated for the damage caused to him, he cannot seek compensation from the driver either.

By Interpretative Decision № 1/2016 of 30 January 2017, ruled on Interpretative Case № 1/2016, the Supreme Court of Cassation ruled: "The victim is not entitled to receive compensation from the delinquent over the indemnity paid by the insurer under the compulsory risk insurance" Civil liability "of motorists on the basis of an agreement reached in which the injured party has stated that he is fully compensated for the respective damage".

The injured party may receive compensation only for damages that have remained unsatisfied, and these are damages that have not been the subject of the agreement.
