The state of Florida holds the dubious distinction of having more uninsured drivers on the road than any other state in the U.S. Nearly one in four Floridians have no automobile insurance. That means that nearly 27%– or three million– people drive without even basic coverage.
If you find yourself in an accident with an uninsured motorist, you have options. Regardless, you may be eligible to receive compensation for damages.

Auto Insurance in Florida
Florida law requires drivers to maintain minimum liability insurance called a Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and a Personal Damage Liability (PDL) policy. Without it, you are not able to legally operate a vehicle on state roads.
The minimum amount of coverage on a PIP policy is $10,000 for damage that may happen to a person and the same amount for a PDL policy. The PDL covers property damage up to $10,000. Additionally, greater amounts of coverage are available to consumers and the type of coverage you select makes a difference.
What can happen if you are found to be driving without coverage in Florida? You could experience fines, jail time and/or driver license suspension.
In most circumstances, Florida’s No-Fault laws offer uninsured motorist coverage associated with an accident, even if you were not at fault. However, notable exceptions do exist. Contact an uninsured motorist accident lawyer in Ft Lauderdale FL such as Brian Pabian at 954- 859-5145 to discuss the circumstances of your situation.
Depending on the specifics of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Especially if you experienced pain and suffering, emotional distress or injury-related inconveniences.
If your accident resulted in a permanent injury, loss of limbs or normal bodily function, death of a loved one, scarring or a permanent injury, then you may receive compensation. Additionally, you face a loss of work, or have lost your job, as a direct result of the accident, or can not work as productively as before, then you may be entitled to compensation.
