Bill Aims to Add Insurer Inspection Prior to Windshield Repair in Florida

The proposed amendment to a current Florida legislation that would require an inspection of a windshield’s damage by an insurer before it is repaired or replaced has now been introduced to the state’s legislature.

The proposed amendment reads, “A policy under this section may require an inspection of the damaged windshield of a covered motor vehicle before the windshield repair or replacement is authorized by the insurer.”

The bill would amend Section 1, Section 627.7288, of the Florida Statutes, and would authorize “a motor vehicle insurance policy providing comprehensive or combined additional coverage to require an inspection of the damaged windshield of a covered motor vehicle before the windshield repair or replacement is authorized by the insurer; providing an effective date.”

The bill is currently in the Senate Committee on Rules.
