Florida law requires that each driver purchase at least $10,000 of property damage liability coverage. This is the coverage that will pay for the damage to another’s car in the event that you are at fault in a collision. Even though Florida law only requires that you purchase $10,000, it is probably a good idea to purchase more since many cars on the road are worth more than $10,000.
The reason it is called “property damage liability coverage” is that the insurance company is saying that if you are held liable for property damage that you cause, then the company will pay for that liability up to the dollar amount purchased by you in the policy.
The term “property” includes, for example, a fence, telephone pole, or building, as well as another car.
Coverage applies even if you drive someone else’s car. Depending on the terms and conditions of your policy, it may also include anyone else who uses your car with your permission.
