Application Of Florida No-Fault Coverage
If you were injured, your no-fault automobile insurance coverage is the first source of insurance benefits on your case. It generally pays your medical expenses at 80% up to $10,000. After your no-fault insurance is exhausted, the next insurance that is expected to pay on your case is the other driver’s liability insurance.
Bodily Injury Liability Insurance In Florida
Florida does not require bodily injury liability coverage but can suspend the driver’s license of anyone who causes an accident and does not have the ability to respond in damages of at least $10,000. The easiest way to resolve that problem is simply to carry bodily injury liability coverage.
Option To Purchase UM Coverage
Regardless of whether there is underlying insurance coverage or not, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage is typically the next type of insurance coverage payable in a Florida automobile accident case. This optional coverage helps you when the other driver who caused the accident either has no insurance at all or has policy limits that are too low to satisfy your damages.
