Uninsured or Under-Insured in Florida
An unfortunate number of Florida motorists are uninsured motorists. When these uninsured individuals are involved in automotive accidents, the people they injure may face serious battles with insurance companies over coverage for the injuries sustained. According to published statistics, nearly one out of every four Florida drivers was uninsured in 2011. This is in part, due to more people out of work and our economic struggles to get people back to work.
If you have been hurt by an uninsured motorist, you should contact an attorney immediately for help. Luhrsen Goldberg has been working in the state of Florida helping clients and their families seek the legal justice that they deserve.
When does Uninsured Motorist Coverage Apply?
Uninsured motorist coverage is meant to provide compensation for those injured by other drivers who lack adequate insurance. This coverage usually only applies where the driver who is at fault for the crash does not have liability coverage or the coverage does not cover as much as Florida law requires. In the state of Florida, you as a vehicle owner are required to have insurance that covers $10,000 in personal injury and $10,000 in property damage liability. In more serious cases though, this may not be nearly enough to cover all of the damages that you incur in a car accident.
