Consider Buying Uninsured Motorist Coverage
Most of us pay our auto insurance bill the same way we pay our electric bill. We couldn’t imagine not having electricity – you can’t live without air conditioning!
But many people drive all over south Florida every day without having insurance coverage. How Many?
Unfortunately the Insurance Information Institute says Florida ranks very high for uninsured motorists. Here is the breakdown:
Our law firm has been dealing with victims of automobile, motorcycle, and truck accidents since 1992 and we have dealt with countless cases where one or more drivers have not had proper insurance.
If you are in an accident and the other driver does not have insurance it is best if you have included Uninsured Motorist Coverage in your policy. If you don’t have that coverage all is not lost – there are often other ways to pursue compensation for injuries and damage. Every case is different and it’s best to let an experienced personal injury attorney review your particular situation.
Many people think of auto insurance as only covering damage to the car. Auto insurance can also cover you for being sued as a result of causing an accident, or for injuries you sustain during an auto accident. If you have traditional health insurance, it may or may not cover all your medical bills.
If your household is a high income earner or you have more than $250,000 in assets, talk to an insurance agent about an umbrella policy. An umbrella policy provides additional liability limits, which will help to protect your financial future. Umbrella policies are very affordable. In Florida, an umbrella policy that will provide an additional $1 million of liability insurance is a possible consideration.
We are not insurance agents, but we know from experience that while quality coverage may cost more, it is well worth it in many situations.
