Florida is a no-fault state. It also has limits on the amount that you can sue the driver who is responsible for an accident. At Insurance Warehouses of America in Orlando, FL we know that no-fault can be very confusing, and we are here to help our customers and potential customers understand what coverage they need and also what options they have.
Why basic auto insurance may not be right for you
In Florida, the basic amount of auto insurance that you must have is $10,000 in PIP and a minimum of $10,000 in PDL. PIP is personal injury protection which will pay for injuries that you sustain in an auto accident. PDL is property damage liability, which is what will be paid for damage to someone else’s property.
When you think about what a hospital stay can cost, you realize that $10,000 is about what one visit to the emergency room can cost. An extended hospital stay could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. With the current cost of vehicles, $10,000 doesn’t go very far either. If you don’t want to end up owing massive amounts after an accident, basic auto insurance may not be enough to protect you.
For those who have an auto loan or a lease, basic insurance will not be acceptable. You will also need to carry collision and comprehensive to protect the vehicle.
