What Insurance Does Florida Require Motorists to Have?
Florida requires that owners of cars and trucks have minimum coverage of $10,000 in personal injury protection that will cover the insured and members of their household. This coverage is also known as Florida No-Fault Insurance. This type of insurance policy covers injuries to you and your family no matter who caused the car accident.
Vehicle owners must also have $10,000 of property damage liability insurance to pay for damage to the other drivers’ vehicles. But Florida is one of the few states that does not require motorists to carry liability insurance to cover bodily injuries. Bodily injury liability insurance pays for serious injuries or death to others when you are at fault in a car crash.
Since many Florida drivers do not have adequate bodily injury liability insurance, it’s important that you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage to cover your medical bills if you are hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver. You may have to file a first-party claim under your own insurance policy to compensate you for your injuries and your loss of enjoyment of life if the other driver is uninsured or underinsured. Your insurance company may deny your claim or try to pay a reduced amount.
The law firm of Philip DeBerard, Injury Attorney, can help you. As part of being a civil trial lawyer, Philip DeBerard studied the uninsured motorist laws and Florida no-fault insurance regulations.
