In the state of Florida, drivers must carry certain types of insurance coverage. The insurance coverage most likely to be included in your plan is [PIP] Personal Injury Protection and Property damage Coverage; bodily injury may be required.
In Florida, you are not required to have liability coverage, although it may assist in your recovery in the event that you are involved in an auto accident.
It is important to know that if you are involved in an auto accident with an uninsured or under insured driver, compensation for your injuries may not be available. Therefore, it is important to protect yourself by carrying proper coverage; including [UM] uninsured motorist coverage.
What is UM Coverage?
UM or uninsured motorist coverage provides protection in the event you are involved in a hit and run collision or rear-ended by a driver that has bare to minimum coverage. Carrying UM coverage ensures that you and your loved ones are able to get the proper compensation for your injuries and the medical treatment necessary for your recovery.
You should ask your insurance company about adding UM coverage to your policy.
