Uninsured Motorist Coverage
– by Tampa Personal Injury Attorney, Martin J. Hernandez
Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UM) is optional in the State of Florida. You can purchase Uninsured Motorist Coverage on your own auto insurance policy. Uninsured Motorist covers you and the relatives who live with you, and people who occupy your car. Uninsured Motorist pays you for injuries caused by an auto accident where the at-fault driver is uninsured or under-insured.
Why Is Uninsured Motorist Coverage Important in Florida?
Approximately 30% of Florida drivers have no auto insurance, and a driver is considered “insured” with limits as low as $10,000 per person/$20,000 per accident for bodily injury. Often, that will not cover a trip to the Emergency Room. Approximately 50% of Florida auto insurance policies have limits of $25,000 per person or lower. If you are hurt or injured in a car accident by an uninsured or under-insured drivers, you may have to pay for your injuries out of pocket. This is why it is important to have Uninsured Motorist Coverage in Florida.
What Does Uninsured Motorist Coverage Pay For?
Uninsured Motorist Coverage pays for things like medical bills, loss of the future enjoyment of life, lost wages and disability, long term nursing care, medical devices like wheelchairs, pain and suffering, death, replacement services for things you are no longer able to do such as yard work and cleaning. Also, Uninsured Motorist Coverage may pay for the cost to retro-fit your house to accommodate disabilities caused by the auto accident.
