Don't wait until tragedy strikes! Protect yourself now!

Don't wait until tragedy strikes! Protect yourself now!

In the recent past, I have had the unfortunate duty of breaking the news to a deceased person's loved ones that, even though someone killed their family member in an accident or other incident, they cannot recover money damages because there was no insurance coverage. These family members are not trying to profit off of their loss; they are simply trying to replace lost income and gain compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Take, for example, a beautiful young woman with a small child who recently lost her husband in a terrible accident. She now has to make ends meet with without the support of the child's father, and was hopeful that she might at least be able to find some monetary recovery to help her get back on her feet after her husband's death. Unfortunately, the other person involved in her husband's death had no insurance.

These types of situations are all too common in Florida, because our state does not require motorists to carry Bodily Injury or Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist insurance coverage. The State of Florida doesn’t even require that boat owners carry any sort of insurance—and we all know too well that many individuals operating boats (especially on holidays) are drinking on the waters.

As a Florida resident, you should be aware that most automobile owners in this state are driving without insurance that will protect you. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (or U.M.) insurance is the only type of insurance that will protect you in the instance that you are involved in an accident with an improperly insured driver. Be sure to purchase U.M. insurance in the amount of at least 100/300 coverage—that’s $100,000 per person, and $300,000 total per accident.

If you have more than one car under the same policy, stack your insurance—in some cases, this will act as a multiplier for the total amount of coverage. For example, if you have two cars, with 100/300 coverage stacked, you will actually have $200,000 per person and $600,000 total per accident in U.M. insurance available to you.

Many people, including myself before I began working in the legal field, believe that insurance is costly and you won’t ever need it. It wasn’t until I saw the devastation in a victims face when they realized that there was no way they could recover for the injuries that left them completely disabled, that I realized the importance of having the proper amount of insurance.
