In 2016, there were 395,797 car accidents in Florida. 165,941 of these accidents resulted in injuries. The most common type of car accident was a “rear-end collision”.
It’s important to know the amount and type of automobile insurance coverage one has. For example, there is no such thing as “Full Coverage.” “Full Coverage” is a term referred to by automobile insurance sales agents which often provides their customers with false security. Under Florida law, personal automobile insurance policies are only required to carry $10,000.00 of no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) insurance and $10,000.00 of property damage (PD) liability insurance. Additionally, the Insurance Research Council (IRC) estimates that at least 24% of Florida drivers have no automobile insurance. This leaves many injured persons without a way or means to be made whole again after an accident.
Generally speaking, in order to recover for one’s damages in an automobile accident, the person who caused the accident must have bodily injury (BI) insurance coverage, and/or the injured party has uninsured/underinsured (UM) motorist coverage under their own personal automobile insurance policy.
