Some Floridians cause motor vehicle accidents without insurance

Post on behalf of Thomas J. Ueberschaer PA on Tuesday February 20, 2018

Florida law requires everyone in the state to carry a minimum amount of insurance coverage in the event of a collision. Sadly, not everyone follows through on this obligation.

Post on behalf of Thomas J. Ueberschaer PA on Wednesday January 24, 2018

Many of Florida’s roadways rely on double yellow lines to separate opposing lanes of travel. Motorists are required to remain on their side of the road unless in a passing zone. When vehicles veer or drift across that centerline, motor vehicle accidents often result, and some of them are deadly. The Florida Highway Patrol says

Sadly, every year, a certain number of drivers stray over that centerline. In some

Post on behalf of Thomas J. Ueberschaer PA on Wednesday November 29, 2017
