CAR INSURANCE BY STATE

As a “Tort” state, Nevada drivers are financially responsible for any property damage or personal injuries that they may cause during an automobile accident. For this reason, you are required by law to carry liability insurance.

The state minimum’s are 15/30/10 (see the chart below) for liability insurance, but it is strongly recommended that you purchase higher levels of coverage to protect yourself and your family, in addition to any assets you may have.

For added protection, Nevada drivers may decide to purchase additional auto insurance for medical payments, comprehensive, collision, as well as uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.

Coverage Type Required? Minimum Coverage Amount Required
Bodily Injury Liability Yes $15,000 per person

$30,000 per accident

Property Damage Liability Yes $10,000
Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury No $15,000 per person

$30,000 per accident

Personal Injury No
