One of thebest ways to protect yourself is to purchase Uninsured Motorist Coverage of UMinsurance. This type of automobile insurance is frequently also referred to asunderinsured motorist insurance as well. If you are injured in an automobilaccident it may be the only thing available to protect you if the person whohit you has inadequate coverage or no coverage at all. In Florida uninsuredmotorist coverage as well as bodily injury coverage are not required for allvehicle owners. The minimum uninsured motorist coverage that a driver or ownercan purchase is $10,000 which can be stacked or unstacked (we will save thatfor another post).
