My Blog - Auto Insurance In Las Vegas-Nevada Senate Bill 308

Attention: Nevada Vehicle Owners

On June 1, 2017, The State of Nevada enacted Senate Bill 308 (SB308) increasing the minimum insurance limits each driver is required to carry. Effective July 1, 2018, the minimum insurance limits will increase to 25/50/20 ($25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident for bodily injury liability and $20,000 for property damage liability). Currently the state law requires a driver to carry 15/30/10 ($15,000 per person/$30,000 per accident for bodily injury liability and $10,000 for property damage). Nevada was one of 8 states remaining that offered such low limits. The vast majority of states require drivers to carry a minimum of 25/50/25 limits.  

Nevada Insurance Carriers

In response to Senate Bill 308, Nevada insurance carriers will no longer offer Bodily Injury or Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) liability limits less than $25,000/ $50,000 (per person/per accident) nor Property Damage (PD) liability limits less than $20,000 in 2018. When the law goes into effect on July 1, 2018, all insured vehicles must already have the new limits in place, therefore after January 1, 2018 if you currently have less than 25/50 limits, upon your upcoming 2018 auto insurance renewal the higher Liability (and Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist limits, if you currently have the coverage) requirement will be automatically be added to your policy.  

Nevada Auto Insurance

Auto Insurance rates in Nevada have been on the rise for the past several years. With the rising costs of medical care as well as increases in the cost to repair vehicles with new technology, insurance companies have been forced to raise rates over the last several years, putting a financial burden on many drivers in Nevada. As companies have raised rates, some drivers have elected to reduce their coverage to the state minimum limits in order to make their insurance more affordable. With the increase in premiums Nevada could see a spike in uninsured drivers, driving up the cost for Uninsured Motorist coverage as well. Feel free to contact us for a policy review.

Congratulations To The Las Vegas Golden Knights

A Historic Season For An Inaugural Franchise

 The team's inaugural home game was played on October 10, 2017, hosting the Arizona Coyotes as the second game of a home-and-home series. In the aftermath of the October 1 mass shooting, the pre-game ceremonies honored the victims of the attack, and the team issued an appeal for donations to its charitable arm.  With their 5–2 win, the Golden Knights increased their unbeaten streak to start the season to 3–0, an NHL record for an expansion team.  The Golden Knights are the first team in NHL history to have started their inaugural season winning eight of their first nine games.


During their tenth game, goaltender Oscar Dansk was injured becoming the third Golden Knights' goaltender to be injured during the season after losing starters Fleury and the recently acquired Malcolm Subban, forcing the team to start a fourth goaltender in 11 games with Maxime Lagace. Fifteen games into the season, Vadim Shipachyov became the first player to retire from the NHL as a Golden Knight when he decided to return to the Kontinental Hockey League.


In December, the Golden Knights set another NHL expansion team record of six straight wins, a record they had previously missed when they lost their tenth game of the season, and established a new NHL record with eight straight wins.  On February 1, 2018, the Golden Knights set the expansion team record for wins in a debut season with 34 wins after only 50 games, and then on February 21, 2018, set a record for most points by an expansion team in the inaugural season with 84.  Clinching a berth for the 2018 playoffs on March 26, the Golden Knights became the first team since the Edmonton Oilers and Hartford Whalers in the 1979–80 season to make the playoffs in their inaugural season in the league. 


On March 31, the Knights clinched the Pacific Division title, becoming the first true expansion team in the four major sports to win its division in its inaugural season (not counting all-expansion divisions, as was the case in the 1967–68 season).  They had led the Pacific since December 23. 


On April 11, the franchise won its first playoff game in a 1–0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in the first game of the series. Six days later on April 17, the franchise earned their first playoff series win against the Kings, winning the fourth game by a 1–0 score, which also became their first playoff series sweep. The Knights became the first team in NHL history to sweep their first playoff series in their inaugural season. On May 6, 2018, the Golden Knights defeated the San Jose Sharks four-games-to-two, becoming the third team in NHL history to win multiple playoff series in their inaugural season, and advanced to the Western Conference Finals.  


On May 20, Vegas defeated the Winnipeg Jets to win the Western Conference Finals in five games, becoming the third NHL team to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals in its inaugural season, after the Toronto Arenas in 1918 and the St. Louis Blues in 1968.  The Golden Knights would lose the Stanley Cup Finals to the Washington Capitals in five games.  The Golden Knights are the first, and to date only, true expansion team to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals in their inaugural season. The Golden Knights are additionally the fastest true expansion team to advance to the finals in the history of all four major professional leagues in North America.

Without  a doubt the Vegas Golden Knights stole the hearts of many Las Vegans and other hockey enthusiasts as well.  The team was a breath of fresh air for a town that has struggled with getting a major sports team to come to town.

Vacant Home Insurance

If you own a home or commercial property, you almost certainly have homeowner’s insurance or commercial property insurance. But what if residential or commercial property you own becomes vacant? That can change your insurance needs.  You’ll need to secure Vacant Home Insurance. Homes become vacant for many reasons. A parent or grandparent is living in a nursing home but doesn’t want to sell their house. You’ve inherited a vacant property you plan to sell. You’ll be traveling for an extended period. You’re a landlord and a rental property becomes vacant for an extended time, perhaps while you’re remodeling it. The list goes on and on.  


Vacant homes and commercial properties tend to be subjected to more risks than occupied ones. Vandalism, Liability if intruders get hurt and sue you, increased fire danger, and more.  


Some typical homeowner’s or commercial property policies don’t cover these risks on vacant property. And many insurance companies won’t cover vacant property, residential or commercial, but we do.  We offer flexible payment plans and a pro-rated cancellations. This comes in handy in case you move back into the home, sell it, find a tenant, or want to cancel for some other reason before the term of your policy is up.  


If your vacant home is destroyed by a covered loss, you receive the full amount of insurance you purchased on your home, minus any applicable deductible. In the event of a covered partial loss, your vacant home insurance covers the cost to replace or repair your damaged property, with a deduction for depreciation reflecting the age and condition of your property, minus any applicable deductible.  


If you’re a landlord and your property goes vacant between tenants, you can cover it with a Vacant Home policy. When someone moves in, we can easily convert it to a Landlord or Owner-occupied policy, all without having to cancel the policy or write a new one.  


Looking for help choosing the right Vacant Home insurance for your property? I can help. You can reach us at 702-396-4200.

All About Ridesharing Insurance

If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.

Q: What Is Ride-Sharing & Why Is It Gettng So Much Attention From Insurance Companies In Las Vegas?

A:  Ride-sharing companies provide taxi-like services by connecting passengers to drivers via a smart phone app. Rides can be arranged in advance or on short notice.   The official name for a ride-sharing business is a Transportation Network Company (TNC). TNCs contract with drivers who use their personal vehicles to transport passengers. Therefore, many of the drivers who work for TNCs do not have a livery driver’s license, and their cars are neither registered nor insured as commercial vehicles. These drivers are distinct from limousine or taxi drivers, who use a commercial vehicle and already have commercial insurance coverage.  


Insurers and insurance regulators are concerned about misconceptions regarding the use of personal auto policies by TNC drivers. Personal auto insurance policies are not designed, underwritten or priced for commercial ride-sharing; indeed, they typically exclude “livery services.” The assumption is that private-passenger motorists drive themselves, family members and friends, and have an average annual travel of 12,000 miles–and, of course, that no money is earned from these private trips.


Like conventional taxicab companies, TNCs are commercial enterprises. Therefore, in order to have coverage, TNC drivers need commercial insurance coverages–just like taxi and livery car drivers. Commercial auto insurance policies generally carry higher liability limits. They are also underwritten with the recognition that commercial vehicles travel more miles than private-passenger cars, and that the passengers in a TNC vehicle are customers, rather than friends or family members.

Q: Does A TNC/Ride-Sharing Driver's Personal Auto Policy Cover Ride-Sharing?

A: Generally a standard personal auto policy will not provide coverage for ride-sharing. A standard personal auto insurance policy stops providing coverage from the moment a driver logs into a TNC ride-sharing app to the moment the customer has exited the car and the transaction is closed.


Recognizing this coverage gap, lawmakers have been working to enact legislation that specifies what insurance coverage is needed to operate legally from “app-on to app-off.” There are three distinct periods where a personal auto policy offers no coverage to TNC drivers, according to a National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) March 2015 white paper.


•Period 1: when the TNC driver logs into the TNC application but is not matched with a passenger;

•Period 2: when the TNC driver has made, and accepted, a match with a prospective passenger but that passenger is not yet physically in the vehicle; 


•Period 3: when the TNC driver has picked up the passenger and the passenger is occupying the TNC driver’s vehicle.


Q: Do Insurance Companies Oppose Ride-Sharing Services?

Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal.


A: No. The insurance industry is a staunch proponent of innovation and new business. However, it is important that it be clear that a personal auto policy is designed to cover only the personal use of a private-passenger vehicle, not the commercial use of a vehicle. This commercial use exclusion extends beyond ride-sharing. It includes any business use of a private-passenger vehicle—such as using a pickup truck to plow snow off driveways or to make business deliveries.


Numerous state insurance regulators have also noted that passengers are taking a risk when they pay for a ride with an uninsured—or underinsured—TNC driver. In the event of an accident, an injured TNC passenger may not be able to recoup damages, as they would from a traditional licensed and commercially insured taxi or limousine service.


The insurance industry welcomes the innovation that TNCs have brought to the for-hire ground transportation marketplace. Indeed, a handful of auto insurers in some states are now offering policies that cover drivers using their cars as either private passenger vehicles or as part of a TNC company’s operations. Specialty or niche insurance products are a growing part of the insurance business.

Q: How Can Prospective Ride-sharing Drivers Learn If They Have Sufficient Coverage?

A: Prospective drivers should ask the TNC what level of coverage it provides. Drivers should also contact their own auto insurer to address gaps, if any, in their liability protection. It is also recommended that TNC drivers review a copy of their TNC’s insurance contracts so they know the exact terms and conditions of the coverage.
