So, a question that I'm asked frequently is, "I was just involved in an accident involving an uninsured motorist. Can I still recover damages?" And quite frankly, the answer is "maybe." It really depends on your own insurance policy because in Florida a driver is only required to carry Personal Injury Protection coverage and property damage. You are not required - if you can believe it - required to carry liability insurance coverage in Florida.
So you can eliminate the risk of everybody else by carrying uninsured motorist coverage. Uninsured motorist coverage is coverage that protects you if you're hit and injured by someone who is uninsured and who did not carry liability insurance coverage. It allows your own insurance company to step into the shoes of the uninsured driver.
