Yes you are. Florida requires all car owners to carry two kinds of auto insurance, it’s mandatory. One is a no fault insurance, and the other is property damage coverage. Those things provide you with protection if you cause damage to someone else’s property and it’s your fault. If I rear-end somebody I have property damage coverage to pay for what I’ve done to their car. Your no fault benefits are available to you to help pay for medical care, lost wages, that sort of thing. Beyond that most coverage is optional. If you want liability coverage to protect if you’re at fault you should absolutely carry liability coverage, and you should also carry uninsured motorist coverage to protect you if you’re the victim of a car accident and the other driver is uninsured. The truth is that in Florida almost one in four drivers are uninsured, so it’s a good idea to carry uninsured motorist coverage.
