What's the difference between bodily injury liability and personal injury protection in Florida?
Do I need both bodily injury and personal injury on my car insurance? Do they cover the same thing?
“The difference between bodily injury liability and personal injury protection is who they cover in an accident.
Bodily injury liability covers the injuries of others if you’re at fault in an accident. Personal injury protection covers you or your passengers injuries regardless of fault.
In Florida, you are required to carry personal injury protection and property damage liability. In most situations, bodily injury liability is optional.
If you choose to not carry bodily injury liability, you would be required to pay out of pocket for another party’s injuries if you’re at fault.
You can never be over insured. If you can afford it, it is beneficial to carry bodily injury liability in addition to personal injury protection.”

Am I required to give my insurance company a copy of my text message log after a claim is filed?
What could my text message have to do with my insurance claim? My insurance company is asking for a copy of my text message and I feel like that is an invasion of privacy. I was in an accident a few weeks ago where the policy said I ran a red light, but I know that it was green.

Will my car insurance decrease every year that I don't have an accident?
If I am accident-free, shouldn't the cost of my insurance decrease every year? I haven't had an accident in over 10 years. The cost of my insurance policy seems to be around the same price for every renewal.
