Is Insurance for Motorcycles Required?

Many people are under the impression that motorcycle insurance is not necessary or required in the State of Florida. That is not really the case, Florida law does say that $10,000/$20,000/$10,000 is required per Florida Statute. But, because the State doesn’t require Personal Injury Protection or PIP for the motorcycle, people have gotten the impression that no insurance is required.

 

What happens is a motorcycle collides with an automobile. Since there is no PIP, and automobiles aren’t required to carry bodily injury, the injured motorcyclist may not have much coverage. We urge the motorcyclist to carry medical payments and uninsured motorist in case the at fault party doesn’t carry the coverages for injury to the not at fault party.
