Florida’s no-fault auto insurance law expires Today

After 36 years with a no-fault auto insurance system — where most medical expenses for accident victims are paid up front without deciding which driver caused the accident — the law expired at 12:01 a.m. Monday.

Unless the Legislature acts during a 10-day special session that begins Wednesday, all accidents — even a small fender bender — could end up in court to determine who caused it.
The next opportunity to restore and revamp the no-fault system most likely would be during the regular legislative session in spring, although a special session later this year has also been mentioned as a possibility.

For now, drivers will no longer be required to buy $10,000 of personal injury protection, or PIP. Property damage coverage will still be needed to register a vehicle in Florida. But the mechanism to enforce this requirement will die with the no-fault law.
