It is important to pick car insurance in the state of Nevada, because not only is it important for your vehicle, it is also a legal requirement. You will not be legally allowed to drive in and around the city as well as to other parts of the state if you don't buy/have a Las Vegas car insurance. The state of Nevada has an Insurance Verification Program, which means that the state motor vehicle bureaus and insurance companies are linked; and every information about new policies; cancelled policies and renewals are automatically sent from one to the other.
Nevada is a state that has some minimum requirements for insurance coverage. These requirements are:
• $15,000 for one person’s injury or death in an accident
• $30,000 for more than one person’s injury or death
• $10,000 for property damage
If an accident occurs, costs can go high depending on the nature of the accident among other factors.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at what basic things do we miss out on while picking car insurance in Las Vegas, Nevada:
1)Terms and Conditions:
We normally remove or ignore the important factors and that leads to a lot of troubles because everything comes with some terms and conditions and if the same isn’t understood, then despite our car insurance giving us all the benefits we would end up being on the receiving end of some catch that wasn’t read or informed about during signing on the dotted line.
2) Liability Insurance :
Did you just hear this for the first time despite being a Nevada resident for life?
Most auto liability insurance policies contain the following major parts: liability insurance for bodily injury, liability insurance for property damage and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
Bodily injury liability insurance does not protect you or your car directly if you are the cause of an accident in which other people (third parties) are injured. This insurance protects you against their claims for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
This insurance coverage also will pay if a member of your family living with you caused the accident, or if it was caused by a person using your car with your consent.
Some insurance policies have a “drop-down” provision which provides only the minimum liability limits for permissive drivers that are not listed in the policy. Bodily injury liability insurance carries specific benefit limits. These limits address how much money your insurance company is obligated to pay for any one victim injured in an accident, and limits the amount the company must pay for multiple victims.
To make a smart consumer purchase, you must understand these limits for bodily injury liability insurance. Remember: Nevada law requires that you carry limits of $15,000 for the bodily injury or death of each person injured in an accident and $30,000 for the bodily injury or death of all persons injured in an accident. Please note, these minimum liability limits will increase to $25,000/$50,000 on July 1, 2018.
Cost is essentially the most important thing and despite our efforts to double check costs and compare too, we still end up paying more than other users. It is because of our ignorance, the insurance companies end up getting more from our pocket than what they should normally get. It might sound weird but there is no comparison between two companies charges because they are bound to vary based on the cost of every insurance.
