Required Auto Insurance in Nevada
Nevada drivers must have Liability Insurance as required by state law. This kind of coverage pays for the other people and their property damage involved in an accident that you were at fault for (up to policy limits). Liability Insurance excludes your own car and any injuries you suffer as a result of the accident. Nevada has put Liability coverage minimums in place, but you always have the option of purchasing higher limits in order to better protect yourself.
State Minimum Liability Coverage in Nevada
- BI or Bodily Injury: $25,000 per person, $50,000 total per accident
- PD or Property Damage: $20,000 per accident

Optional Coverage in Nevada
You can purchase the minimum Auto Insurance coverage limits and be a legal Nevada driver, but you have more options than what the law has deemed sufficient. Additional coverage and higher limits could better protect you from expenses resulting from an accident, weather extremes or other issues.
Below are some examples you may want to consider:
- Collision Coverage*: If you are in a collision involving other vehicles, this optional coverage helps pay for damages to your own car. When the average national repair costs following an accident are nearly $3,000, it’s important to consider additional insurance protection, and avoid paying those costs out of your own pocket.
- Comprehensive Coverage*: Take time to think about all the variables that could cause car damage, including door dings, vandalism, flood, fire and more. These shouldn’t be overlooked when choosing your insurance policy. With Comprehensive coverage, your insurance would help pay for these types of non-collision incidences.
- Underinsured/Uninsured Motorist Coverage: This type of coverage helps pay for your damages and injuries caused by a driver without adequate Auto Insurance. An estimated 13% of Nevada drivers are uninsured, and that could leave you paying for your own damage after an accident, even if you were not at fault.
- Higher Bodily Injury Limits: Bodily Injury claims can add up fast, and if you are held responsible for an accident, the $15,000 per person minimum may not be nearly enough to cover the costs. Consider ambulance rides, hospital visits, treatment and more. With higher Bodily Injury limits, you could be better protected from potentially substantial costs.
- Higher Property Damage Limits: Property damage can come in many forms. Consider an accident involving not only other vehicles but fences, light poles or even buildings. $10,000 may not be enough to cover all the damage, and you could find yourself required to pay any additional costs out of your own pocket.
*Although Collision coverage and Comprehensive coverage are not required by law, they may be required in your car loan or lease contract with the lender.
It is not necessary for you to add these types and levels of coverage, but you may decide it’s in your best interests to do so. To help you determine your Auto Insurance coverage needs, call a licensed Insurance Specialist at AIS.
