Proposed Bill Attempts to Increase Minimum Automobile Liability Insurance Coverage for Convicted Felonsby Gerson & Schwartz, P.A.
Earlier this month, our firm along with the the Florida Justice Association traveled to Tallahassee, FL to lobby the the Florida legislature. One proposed bill of particular interest would increase the minimum amount of automobile insurance coverage a convicted felon would be required to carry while operating a car or other motor vehicle in Florida.
Far too often we have seen situations where car accident victims have been injured by repeat offenders and convicted felons. In these situations, the injured are often unable to recover sufficient amounts from those who caused them harm. Under the current law, a convicted felon is only required by law to carry the same bodily injury coverage as other law abiding citizens. If passed, convicted felons would now be required by statute to maintain a minimum of $100,000 for bodily injury and up to $ 500,000.00 for property damage. At Gerson and Schwartz PA we are committed to help those who have been injured both today and in the future. It is through these efforts, in and out of court room that we define our mission and success.
