Is there a broken windshield law in Florida?

If you have comprehensive insurance coverage in the State of Florida and a glass company tells you-you have to pay them or pay a deductible to replace your windshield, hang up the phone…it’s a scam!

Florida Car insurance law:  Specifically Florida Statute 627.7288  States: “Comprehensive coverage; deductible DOES NOT apply to motor vehicle glass” under the title Insurance Companies Auto Glass“Insurance Rates and Contracts,” it states that the deductible provision “shall not be applicable to damage to the windshield of any motor vehicle.”

So what does this mean? 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.  There’s no out of pocket expenses and your windshield replacement is FREE!

This only applies to windshields. Other glass, such as door glass, or side windows does not fall under this statue.
