Insurance – Auto – Florida Policy – S.C. Accident – Bodily Injury Coverage – No Compulsory Insurance Law (access required)

Thalia S. v. Progressive Select Insurance Co. Although plaintiffs’ Florida auto insurance policy does not provide bodily injury coverage for accidents occurring in Florida, its out-of-state provision says coverage will be provided, “If an accident to which this Part I applies occurs in any state other than the one in which a covered vehicle is principally garaged, and the state … has … a compulsory insurance or similar law requiring a nonresident to maintain insurance whenever the nonresident uses a vehicle in that state….” Contrary to plaintiffs’ argument, S.C. Code Ann. § 56-9-351 is not a “compulsory insurance or similar law” within the meaning of their policy’s out-of-state coverage provision.
