Florida doesn’t require its drivers to maintain bodily injury coverage but many insurance companies will not sell a policy without minimum bodily injury limits. Under the Financial Responsibility Law, if a driver is held to be at fault in an accident that results in bodily injury or property damage must have full liability coverage. Specifically, the law requires that any person have liability coverage at the time of the following:
- A crash where you are at fault and injuries have occurred.
- A suspension for too many points against your driver license.
- A citation for DUI, which results in a revocation.
- A revocation for Habitual Traffic Offender.
- A revocation for any serious offense where this department is required to revoke your license.
Below are Florida’s minimum requirements under the Financial Responsibility Law:
|Minimum Florida Bodily Injury Requirements|
|Bodily injury liability for one person||$10,000|
|Bodily injury liability for two or more people||$20,000|
|Property damage liability||$10,000|
