Make Sure You Have Uninsured/Under-Insured Motorist Coverage
As we approach Bike Week here in Daytona Beach and Orlando, Florida, it
is important that all of us check to make sure we have Uninsured and/or
Under-Insured Motorist coverage available while riding a motorcycle. Please
remember that in Florida, a car is not required to carry Bodily Injury
liability insurance. In other words, drivers in Florida are not required
to carry insurance that covers you in the event they are negligent and
hurt you. Many vehicles are uninsured here in Florida or have the minimum
$10,000.00 liability policy people can get here, if they elect to have
this coverage at all. Uninsured Motorist coverage stands in the shoes
of the liability carrier that would have provided coverage.
One way to get Uninsured Motorist coverage on your motorcycle easily, at
least based upon Florida insurance rules, is to have “stacked”
uninsured motorist coverage on your automobiles. If your automobile uninsured
motorist coverage is stacked, it should apply to you while riding a motorcycle
that does not specifically have uninsured motorist coverage. It is also
important to make sure that your uninsured motorist coverage is “stacked”
because this will provide more coverage to you in the event you are hurt
and there is inadequate liability coverage. All uninsured motorist coverage
can be added together rather than having to select the one coverage that
applies to the vehicle you are on. Uninsured motorist coverage that is
not stacked on your automobiles will not apply on your motorcycle in many
