Car Insurance

Even in Jacksonville's suburbs, there'’s plenty of traffic. A full-service auto insurance policy can help you afford the recovery costs if a wreck or other type of damage occurs.

Florida law requires all drivers to carry at least the following insurance:

  • $10,000 Property Damage Liability (PDL) Coverage: This coverage will pay for damage you might cause to someone else’s car or other personal property if you cause a wreck.
  • $10,000 Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage: Regardless of who causes an accident, PIP coverage from your policy will pay for your medical bills, lost income and other injury costs.

We also recommend you add various extra coverage to your policy, including:

  • Bodily Injury Liability (BIL) Coverage: If someone sues you for the injuries they sustain in a wreck you caused, this coverage can help you with legal costs and settlements.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Bodily Injury Protection: If another driver injures you, and you qualify to request compensation from them, there’s a chance that they may not have BIL coverage. Or they might not have high enough BIL limits. Your own uninsured/underinsured coverage can compensate you when another driver cannot.
  • Collision Insurance: After a wreck, your policy can help you pay for your car's repairs. Collision coverage can also pay if another driver has no PDL coverage that you can file against.
  • Comprehensive Insurance: This coverage will pay you for vehicle damage resulting from non-accident incidents. For example, a car fire or hail damage might have coverage under this policy.

Homeowners Insurance

Orange Park's median home value is $198,000. The real estate market in the area also is in very high demand. Still, when you decide to buy, you need homeowners insurance. The policy can help you protect both the property value and the multiple assets within. Policies might offer:

  • Structure Coverage: This insures your house, garage and detached buildings on the property. It can cover you in the event of damage from fires, weather, theft or other hazards.
  • Possessions Insurance: This coverage pays for damaged or destroyed personal belongings.
  • Liability Coverage: If you harm someone else or damage their property, this coverage can repay them for the costs of your mistakes. It can also help you cover legal fees if a lawsuit arises.
  • Expense Protection: Do you need to move out of the house temporarily after an accident? Let this coverage reimburse you for expenses like dining or hotel bills.

Please Note: Many lenders require loan applicants to carry homeowners coverage. Speak to your lender to learn about your exact coverage requirements.

Renters Insurance

renters insurance. It will help you afford to replace your assets if they get damaged, and will allow you to protect yourself against liabilities that could still be your fault. Policies can include:


  • Liability Insurance: This coverage pays third parties, like houseguests or neighbors, when you cause them property damage or injuries.
  • Possessions Coverage: You can insure your belongings under this coverage. However, you won’t have to worry about insuring items belonging to your landlord.
  • Loss of Use Insurance: This coverage can pay you if you have to vacate the property temporarily, while it undergoes repairs.

Your policy won't cover damage to the property’s structure because that structure belongs to the landlord. Their own insurance can cover those losses. Still, if your landlord can prove that you caused the damage, then your liability insurance might agree to compensate them for their losses. Check with your landlord to see if they require you to buy certain coverage.
