If you haven’t purchased it you could be sanctioned with fines of up to €3,000 and you would have to foot all the expenses derived from the accident, both material damage and bodily injuries.
With some exclusions:
Damages caused to the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident.
Damages unrelated to driving.
Damages caused by a stolen vehicle.
Damages caused when the vehicle is driven under the influence of drugs or alcohol, without a driving license, with excess load or when the legal obligations related to the safety of the vehicle are breached.

Up to a maximum of 70 million euros in case of injuries to people
