Florida Minimum Auto Insurance Coverage
The State of Florida has legislated that every vehicle owner must have, at bare minimum, the following auto insurance coverage:
- Personal Injury Protection (PIP) — $10,000.00
- Property Damage Liability (PDL) — $10,000.00
Additionally, if you have been convicted of certain offenses, or have been involved in an auto accident in the past, you may also be required to purchase Bodily Injury Liability (BIL) insurance coverage.
Florida Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
The Personal Injury Protection (PIP) that you are required to purchase covers several issues. First, it provides compensation for a loss due to injury, regardless of the fault. Next, it also applies to not just the insured but their relatives residing in the same household and passengers who are not required to have PIP, in the event of bodily injury. Finally, PIP comes into play if you are injured as a pedestrian, just so long as the bodily injury is caused by an auto.
Florida Property Damage Liability (PDL)
Your Property Damage Liability (PDL) coverage that you are required to have pays for damages caused by the policy holder or members of their family residing in the same home caused to property belonging to other people in an auto accident.
Florida Bodily Injury Liability (BIL)
As for the Bodily Injury Liability (BIL) that you might be required to carry, that will pay for serious or permanent injury and even death to others, when the insured causes an auto accident while driving their vehicle. It also provides legal representation in the event of a lawsuit following a crash, covers injuries up to the policy limits, and may provide additional coverage for people other than the policy holder, who drive the insured’s vehicle provided, of course, that they have permission to do so.
