The Florida House has passed HB 719, a bill which repeals provisions relating to Florida Motor-Vehicle No-Fault Law. This is great news! Personal Injury Protection benefits are a required type of motor-vehicle insurance that provides minimal protection and has led to an incredible amount of litigation and confusion. Florida motor-vehicle laws must require mandatory bodily injury insurance for all registered vehicles. Bodily injury insurance pays for the damage to a person that a careless driver causes. Florida is one of the few states in the entire nation that do not require this vital insurance protection. Thankfully, the Florida House has passed a law that repeals this ancient and obsolete PIP coverage in favor of true financial responsibility. Drivers will now be required to carry $25,000 worth of insurance coverage per person and $50,000 per policy in order to register their car in Florida. This is positive and helps all Floridians. Finally!
Now we need the Senate companion bill: SB 54 to pass. Please contact your local Florida State Senator and tell them to vote “Yes’ in favor of mandatory bodily injury insurance. Vote Yes on Senate Bill 54! Please use the link below to locate the contact information for the members of the Florida Senate:
