“Yes, your glasses would be covered as a medical expense under your Florida personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. This coverage is for medical expenses, regardless of who is at fault for the accident.
The damage to the cell phone would depend on the liability for the accident. Because you were rear-ended, the other party is liable for the damage to the phone. This type of claim is covered under their [property damage liability](https://getjerry.com/car-insurance/property-damage-liability coverage).
If you had been at fault for the accident, there would be no coverage for the damaged phone. Hope this helps! “
