Why UNINSURED AND UNDERINSURED Motorists Wreak So Much Havoc
In Florida, drivers are not required to carry bodily injury (BI) coverage. What’s more, the minimum uninsured motorist (UM) coverage is just $10,000. That might sound like a lot, but medical bills can quickly exceed that amount.
Even if a driver has insurance, they might not have enough insurance to cover your costs.
When someone with no BI coverage injures you in an accident, there’s no insurance money available to that motorist to cover your bills. That’s why it’s a good idea to get more UM coverage than the law requires. $100,000 or more UM coverage is a good baseline for avoiding financial problems.
