Florida Car and Motorcycle Insurance Law
Required Minimum Bodily Injury Coverage
- $10,000 per person injured in any one accident and $30,000 for all persons injured in any one accident
Required Minimum Property Damage Coverage
- $10,000 for injury to or destruction of property of others in any one accident
Required No-Fault Coverage.
- Florida has a No-Fault Law that provides a minimum amount of insurance benefits that are paid without regard to fault. Florida’s No-Fault statute requires motor and commercial vehicle owners to purchase an insurance policy that provides for certain security, including required Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage benefits to a limit of $10,000 per person for medical and disability expenses, as well as $5,000 per person in death benefits. If economic damages are less than PIP coverage paid out, a person has no tort claim. However, a person can sue if economic damages exceed that paid out by PIP, as well as when the victim suffers permanent injury, permanent loss of an important bodily function, significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement, or death. Whether a person suffers permanent injury or significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement is a question of law to be decided by a judge.
Optional Insurance Coverage
- Uninsured (UM) Motorist Coverage. UM includes underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. If elected, UM must be equal to the bodily injury liability coverage purchased, unless specifically rejected.
