The High Costs of Florida Liability Insurance

by | Dec 31, 2014 | Automotive

For many, the monthly premium for liability insurance can be very expensive. This can be especially expensive for those with lower incomes. This amount can be difficult to maintain each and every month. Sometimes, it seems like a better option to just let the insurance expire. This can save you hundreds of dollars in your budget, every year. This can help you afford to live your life a little more comfortably. It may even allow you to purchase a few luxury items for your home, such as a large screen television. It may seem like the most cost effective decision you ever made, until, you have an accident.

One small, at fault accident can be a very expensive mistake. The damage to the other vehicle will now be your responsibility to pay. Depending on the type of car and the extent of the damage, this can be hundreds to thousands of dollars in repair costs. If the damage is extensive, you may be responsible for the cost of a new vehicle. If there are injuries, the medical costs will be your responsibility, as well. For extensive or multiple injuries, these costs can grow to hundreds of thousand of dollars. Lost wages and rehabilitation costs of the injured will also be your responsibility. If taken to court over the damages, it will be your responsibility to find representation and all court costs.

In addition to the costs of damages, you will also be ticketed by the police department. State laws require you to have at least liability insurance. This can cause you to have large fines, as well as, your license suspended. The costs of all of this, including not being able to drive, can be detrimental to your livelihood. It could cause a catastrophic effect on your ability to maintain the costs of your living. Your new large screen television will not be much comfort when you have lost your home. All of these costs and fines could have easily been avoided. Florida liability insurance can help cover the damages and medical costs of an accident. If a lawsuit occurred, the insurance company would have helped with that, as well. Budgeting the costs of insurance can be the best way to save you money in the long run.
