PIP Insurance Minimums
Florida law requires drivers to have minimum coverage for PIP and property damage liability. As long as you have a valid Florida license plate, you must carry $10,000 in PIP benefits and $10,000 in property damage liability insurance.
What Is Covered Under PIP Insurance?
PIP insurance covers you no matter if you or someone else was at fault. A PIP insurance policy will also cover any members of your household who were in the accident, vehicle passengers, and others involved in the accident. If you are a passenger, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian, and are hurt in a crash, you will also be covered under PIP benefits. The benefits cover up to $10,000 in medical expenses incurred after the accident.
Bodily Injury Liability
Bodily injury liability coverage will extend to serious injuries or death to others in an accident. The insurance company will pay for injuries up to the limits of your policy. Medical coverage under bodily injury can include the cost of treatment, disability benefits as a result of time lost at work, and death benefits in the case of wrongful death.
Property Damage Liability
Property damage will include damages caused to other people’s property in an accident involving a motor vehicle. This may include damages to another vehicle, motorcycle, or personal property.
