My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Florida
I live in Canada.
Rented a car from Fox car rental.
They never asked for my policy number or car insurance from Canada.
I said I had insurance in Canada, not sure if it covered me here.
They sold me their cheapest insurance plan
Purchased Loss Damage WAVER 18 / day
- they waive the right to charge me for damages on their car.
2. Got in an accident.
I rear ended another rental car.
My car is in bad shape.
His car is not bad. wheel dropped off back of suv, bumper damaged minorly.
3. Fox Rental Car says:
Insurance does not cover me for the damages on the other car.
How can they let me on the road, without insurance covering the counterparty's car?
Wouldn't that be illegal?
5. What should I do?
Call up my own insurance co. in canada?
Will I have to pay for the damages on the counter party personally?
How do I negotiate with Hertz insurance company on their claims against me for damages?
Rental Car Company Claims:
they are not liable for the damages caused on the other vehicle

I am registering a vehicle for the first time in Florida. Is automobile insurance mandatory?
Yes. If you own a vehicle with at least four wheels and are registering it, you must have Florida insurance.
What type of insurance is required to purchase and maintain a Florida license plate and registration?
Florida's minimum coverage is $10,000 personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 property damage liability (PDL) as long as you have a valid Florida license plate.
Right here, it should show that the rental car has insurance.
