Florida, aka The Sunshine State, is focused more heavily on tourism than any other state. From its beaches to the south in Miami and Destin to the west, to its world-famous theme parks like Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida has no shortage of attractions. But the state is also home to delicious veggie agriculture including potatoes, green peppers, and sweet corn and fruits like bananas, papayas, and watermelons. Perhaps even stranger, is the fact that Florida loves its sugar. In fact, it leads the nation in the production of sugar cane.
But when it comes to safety, Florida does not mess around. They choose Velox Insurance for their auto insurance and home insurance needs. What’s sweeter than that?
Car Insurance Required
Liability coverage is legally required in Florida and pays for damage to the other driver’s vehicle in the event that you are considered “at fault” in an accident under the property damage portion of your policy. Although bodily injury coverage can technically be rejected, it is normally considered vital to a basic policy to pay for injury that you may cause to another driver or their passengers should you be considered “at fault” in an accident. The coverage limits are determined by each individual state and normally split into three categories. In Florida, the minimum is listed as 10/20/10 and explained below:
- $10,000 bodily injury coverage per person. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for a single person that you injure in an auto accident.
- $20,000 bodily injury coverage per accident. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for all injuries that you cause in an accident if more than one person is hurt.
- $10,000 property damage per accident. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for damage that you cause in an accident.
Personal Injury Protection of $10,000 per person is required in Florida and will cover up to 80% of medical costs and up to 60% of work loss if you are injured in an accident and are not able to work. Even things like laundry and maid services can be covered under your PIP coverage if you are unable to perform day-to-day tasks and this also extends to members of your household.
Although Florida is a “no-fault” state, drivers can be sued for severe injury, permanent disfigurement, or death that they cause in the event of an accident. Drivers can protect themselves from these lawsuits by choosing bodily injury liability coverage to meet their needs.
Optional coverage in Florida
Collision Coverage pays, up to the coverage limits, for damages caused to your vehicle or a vehicle you are operating if it hits another car, object, or overturns. This type of coverage is typically required if you are financing your vehicle.
Comprehensive Physical Damage Coverage
This type of insurance provides coverage for damages to your vehicle or any vehicle in your custody resulting from incidents other than collision such as theft, fire, vandalism, flooding, hail or other perils. It is usually required if you have a vehicle loan.
Liability insurance provides coverage to pay for another individual’s bodily injuries or damages to their vehicle or property that you are legally responsible for. This type of insurance is required in most states.
Medical Payments Coverage
If you and your passengers are injured or killed in an accident, Medical Payments Coverage will pay for your doctor, hospital and funeral expenses regardless of who is at fault. This type of insurance also covers you as a pedestrian if you are hit by a vehicle.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists Coverage
If you are in a hit-and-run accident or if you are in an accident with someone who does not have insurance, this Uninsured Motorist Coverage pays for pain and suffering which is not covered by medical, disability and Personal Injury Protection. Underinsured Motorist Coverage pays for bodily injury to you or your family resulting if the person legally responsible does not have adequate coverage.
