Legal Answers
  • Q. If my sons are both passengers in a car in Florida, get rearended by the at fault driver, who insures my boys?
    A: Assuming you own, or whoever the boys live with own a vehicle then your insurance will cover up to 10,000 each in medical expenses. Beyond that you will need to see if the at fault party and vehicle owner carried bodily injury coverage. If not, you would have to carry um motorist coverage.
