What is the Florida Law regarding insurance auto glass claims?

If you’re into legal jargon, you’ll understand this just fine, but if not I’ll break it down anyway.

Florida Statute 627.7288 labeled “Comprehensive coverage; deductible not to apply to motor vehicle glass” under the title “Insurance Rates and Contracts,” states that the deductible provision “shall not be applicable to damage to the windshield of any motor vehicle.”

This may be a bit hard to understand, but to put it simply: Customers who have Comprehensive Coverage in the state of Florida are not liable to pay any deductible amount in order to pay for services to repair damages to their vehicle’s windshield.

We’ve made it really easy to find out if you have the right coverage right here.

The majority of insurance policyholders have a deductible in their Comprehensive Coverage that they must meet before their policy pays for benefits. If their deductible is $500 or $1,000, this is the amount they would have to pay first, before their insurance company would pay for vehicle damages.

Making car payments?

If so, you do carry comp coverage and are able schedule a windshield replacement at no cost to you.

However, with the Florida Statute above in effect, policyholders do not have to pay for their deductible in order to fix their auto’s windshield. It’s free to the customer!

Please note that this “Deductible Waiver,” as it is called, does not apply to any other glass on your vehicle, such as door glass and back glass.

Are windshield replacements free?

The explanation below states in a very easy manner what Florida auto insurance covers in regards to auto glass repairs and replacements:

Need Windshield + Have Comprehensive Coverage = Free Windshield!

Need Side or Back Glass + Have Comprehensive Coverage = Only Pay Deductible

Need Any Type of Auto Glass + No Comprehensive Coverage = Pay Entire Bill
