Florida Uninsured Drivers
Did you know in Florida you have a roughly one in four chance of colliding with someone who is uninsured? Florida's uninsured driver rate is .% more than double the national average. Unlike most states Florida car owners are not required to carry bodily injury liability insurance or BI coverage. That's the coverage held by the atfault driver that will compensate you when you are injured in a crash.
In Florida however everyone must carry their own personal injury protection coverage commonly referred to as PIP. PIP tops out at $ and clearly that may not cover all your bills so how do you protect yourself? South Florida attorney Diana Santa Maria says there is only one good option; include uninsured motorist or UIM coverage on your auto insurance policy.
It's the best way to protect you and your loved ones. If you are injured in a crash and the atfault driver has no insurance it's possible you may still be entitled to compensation.
