Coverage to Consider Adding to Your Auto Insurance Policy
Re-posted on 4/17/20
In Nevada, you’re required to carry minimum liability auto insurance, which covers the expenses incurred by the other person in a collision that you’re responsible for. It doesn’t cover a dime of your own repairs or medical bills, but fortunately, comprehensive and collision coverage can be added to your policy. These types of additional coverage provide you with a way of paying for the costs of repairs for your own vehicle.

Obviously, coverage limits vary widely, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach for figuring out how much coverage you actually need. To determine whether you should increase or decrease your collision and comprehensive deductible, consider factors like:
- What type of vehicle you have and how old it is
- If you had an accident, could you afford to cough up the deductible at anytime
- How high of a premium can you afford to pay if your car was totaled
- Do you live in a densely populated area, increasing your risk of an accident
- How many miles per year do you drive
- What other drivers are in your household
Setting a lower deductible may cost you more upfront each month, but in the event of an accident, it can be a relief. On the other hand, if your vehicle isn’t worth much more than the cost of your deductible, then you may not want to pay for collision and comprehension for that vehicle.
