Drivers in St. Petersburg are required by law to have proof of insurance in the car when requested by law enforcement. Failure to do so can result in fines and a license suspension. If a driver has an accident without insurance, they can be held liable for all costs associated with the other driver’s bodily and property injuries and driving privileges can be suspended until those damages are paid.
St. Petersburg rates tend to be higher than other states, forcing drivers to opt for only minimum coverage. Most Insurance companies usually advise against this, especially if you drive an expensive vehicle, as the minimums may not provide you with enough coverage, and you could have to pay out of your own pocket for damages.
Collision and Comprehensive
Collision and Comprehensive (other than collision) coverages pay for damage to your automobile. You can purchase either or both of these coverages for each vehicle you own. If you have an auto loan you may be required to purchase both.
Collision coverage insures you against damage to your vehicle caused during an accident.
Comprehensive (other than collision) coverage insures you against all other physical damage to your car caused by such events as fire, theft, flood, and vandalism.
Collision and comprehensive (other than collision) coverage usually includes a deductible, which can range from $100 to $1,000. If your car is damaged, the Insurance company pays only for the damage in excess of the deductible you selected. The higher the deductible, the lower the premium.
Liability coverage pays for injuries you cause to other people and damage you cause to other people's property when you are at fault in an automobile accident.
Medical Payments coverage
Medical Payments coverage pays medical expenses (up to a specified dollar limit) for you and passengers of your car who are injured in an automobile accident, no matter who is at fault. If you and your passengers have health Insurance, you may not need this coverage.
Personal Injury Protection
Some states require Personal Injury Protection, which is also known as No-Fault coverage. This coverage pays for things like medical and rehabilitative expenses, replacement services, and funeral expenses. It also pays for loss of income if you are injured in an auto accident and are unable to work.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage
This coverage pays if you are injured by a person who is completely uninsured or doesn't have enough liability Insurance to cover your injuries. It also covers you if you are in an accident with a hit-and-run driver.
Optional or special coverage includes extras such as towing, rental reimbursement, and roadside assistance. None of these coverages are required.
How much do I need?
Choosing the appropriate level of auto Insurance coverage depends on a number of factors, including assets you must protect (liability coverage), value of your vehicle (collision and comprehensive), the amount of money you can afford to pay out-of-pocket (deductibles), and your tolerance for risk.
