Motor Vehicle No Fault Back In Effect

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Effective January 1, 2008 Florida drivers must again have personal injury protection insurance on their automobiles registered for operation in the Sunshine State. The Florida Legislature acted last year to restore the coverage which had expire in October 2007 after decades as a legal requirement for all Florida motorists.

Florida PIP coverage provides insurance benefits that cover 80% of the automobile owners medical expenses and 60% of the automobile owners wage loss sustained as a result of an auto accident, regardless of fault, up to $ 10,000. The coverage also applies to passengers and relatives of the insured owner’s household. Failure to carry this insurance can result in suspension of an owner’s driver’s license or vehicle registration.
