What Does Your Auto Insurance Cover?

Personal Injury Protection (PIP or No-Fault)
According to Florida law, if you own a motor vehicle with four or more wheels you must carry $10,000 of personal injury protection insurance (PIP) and a minimum of $10,000 of property damage liability insurance. In the state of Florida you must seek medical treatment of some sort within 14days of the accident or you forfeit your personal injury protection and you receive no money for your medical bills. 


Personal injury protection (PIP) insurance covers you regardless of whether you cause an accident (are "at-fault") -- up to the limits of the policy. PIP is designed to reduce the necessity of suing for reimbursement of medical and related bills from auto accidents. PIP pays:

 

  • 80% of reasonable medical expenses
  • 60 percent of lost wages
  • $5,000 for death benefits

 

For accidents that happen in Florida, PIP covers you and relatives who live in your home, certain passengers, and others who drive your car with your permission. Pedestrians and bicyclists are also covered if they are Florida residents.

For accidents that happen outside Florida but inside the U.S. or Canada, PIP covers you and relatives who live in your home. In this case, you must be driving your own vehicle. Persons other than you or your relatives are not covered.
