State Minimum Car Insurance Requirements For Florida

Since Florida is a “no-fault” state they require drivers to carry Personal Injury Protection or (PIP) insurance. PIP insurance is going to cover the costs of doctor bills or the loss of wages from not being able to work. As with other states there are exceptions to the rule for PIP insurance.

If the amount of damages or medical costs are exorbitant then the other party is able to bring the “at-fault” driver to court for the financial loss.

Even though Florida is a no-fault state their minimum requirements are lower than average which are as follows:

Uninsured Motorist Protection

Florida has a high uninsured motorist rate therefore it would be a good idea to consider uninsured motorist cover in the unlikely event you are in an accident with a driver who does not have insurance or adequate amount to cover the expenses.

Florida is another state with an extremely high amount of drivers in cities with high population such as Miami, Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, and Pensacola. Not only state residents, but also those who travel to the state.

Comprehensive and collision cover is recommended by the state particularly if you have a newer vehicle. Comprehensive is going to protect your vehicle in all “non-collision” type of accidents.

Comprehensive is also known as “non-collision” coverage. Collision coverage will protect the vehicle is you have an accident with a road sign or another non-vehicular object.
