How accident coverage works in Florida

Florida, which is a no-fault state requires insurers to pay for any medical bills or lost wages associated with any motor vehicle accident. This is always the case regardless of who is at fault in the accident. Because of this, the state of Florida requires motorist to have Personal Injury Protection coverage as part of their auto insurance policy.

In some instances, personal injury protection does carry some form of liability insurance as well as coverage for any medical expenses. Many full coverage policies will include this type of coverage. However, no-fault insurance does not apply to property damage and the insured driver may still be responsible for cost associated with any property damage.

Dealing with Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist in Florida

Uninsured (UM) or Underinsured (UIM) motorist coverage is a form of additional coverage that protects you in the event you get into a collision with an uninsured or underinsured driver. This type of add-on can help cover gaps in the policy, that may otherwise come out-of-pocket. Things like medical expenses or property damage are some protections UM or UIM provides.

While this type of coverage isn't mandatory in Florida, it can come in handy in the event where someone damages your property or their insurance won't cover all your necessary medical expenses. Because Florida is a no-fault state, this type of auto coverage serves as a great safety net.

Drivers in Florida are required to have PIP insurance coverage, which covers any physical therapy and recovery costs, psychiatric expenses and other professional health services as a result of an accident. These coverages can help protect you from uninsured or underinsured motorists.
