Most residents of Jacksonville and Florida could benefit from a Florida Vehicle Trust if they have children who drive their vehicles or in the case that a judgment is in excess of their insurance limits.
A Florida Vehicle Trust protects your assets by holding title in a specifically designed trust. In Florida the owner and the driver of a Car, Motorcycle, or other vehicle is liable for any damage done by the driver of the vehicle.
Many parents are concerned about damage that their child, or a friend of their child’s may do when loaned the vehicle. Using a Vehicle Trust can protect your assets from excess liability that is created when the damage done by the driver and/or vehicle is in excess of the insurance on the automobile.
