No one ever plans on being in an auto accident, but the fact is that they happen all the time. You never know when or where it will happen, so it’s important to be prepared. Being prepared is understanding your available insurance coverages. Having the proper coverage will protect you financially if you are injured in an accident and your car is damaged. This blog is brought to you by the Law Office of Roger P. Foley in an effort to educate drivers about the types of insurance coverage they should have in case an accident occurs.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Is Not Sufficient To Protect Drivers that Are Injured In An Auto Accident

Most Florida drivers are only required to carry the minimum amount of auto insurance coverage, which is $10,000 for personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 for property damage liability (PDL). This is considered full coverage. However, this may not be enough to cover all the costs if you are involved in a serious car accident. That’s why it’s important to have bodily injury coverage, uninsured motorist coverage and stacking of coverages.

It’s no secret that car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in children. Every 25 seconds, a child is involved in a car crash while riding as a passenger. Every day, around 500 children get injured in car accidents in the United States. However, when car seats are installed correctly, they can reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers.

That’s why it’s so important to make sure your child is as safe as possible when traveling in a car. One way to do this is by using a child car seat. But with so many different types and brands on the market, it can be hard to know which one is right for your child. In this blog post, West Palm Beach Personal Injury Lawyer, Rp Foley, will discuss the different types of child car seats and what the Florida law says about keeping your children safe while in an automobile.

There are three main types of child car seats: rear-facing, forward-facing, and booster seats. Each type has its own set of safety features and is designed for a different age group.

The rainy season in West Palm Beach typically lasts from May until October. During this time the area experiences an average of 12 inches of rainfall per month. The rains usually come in the form of thunderstorms, which can sometimes be severe.

While the weather can be a bit unpredictable during this time of year, it’s also one of the most beautiful times to be in West Palm Beach. The area is lush and green, and the rains help to cool off the hot summer temperatures.

However, the rainy season can also be a dangerous time to be on the roads. Due to the increased rainfall, the roads can become slick and slippery. This can lead to a higher number of car accidents. As a West Palm Beach Personal Injury and Car Accident Lawyer, my office understands that:
