Nevada is one of the best places on earth to own an ATV. Only here can you choose from mountains, ranches, lakefronts and even salt flats for your enjoyment. You can protect yourself financially by making sure you have the right ATV insurance before you ride. Quotes on an ATV insurance policy come in a wide range of coverage options and prices. Whether you ride a three-wheeler, four-wheeler, UTV or side-by-side for work or pleasure, you take on financial risk every time you hit the gas pedal. ATV insurance can keep those risks to a minimum.
Aside from some of the most unique ATV destinations in the U.S., Nevada offers unrivaled freedom to ATV users. Practically anyone can ride, at any age. However, the Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that all riders wear appropriate safety gear and take a training course offered locally. Twenty-four percent of all ATV fatalities occur in riders under the age of 16, so it's important that minors receive proper instruction and not take on more horsepower than they are ready to handle safely.
Just as car insurance protects you from the cost of accidents and legal claims related to highway accidents, ATV insurance can help you recover from an accident without breaking the bank.
More than 107,000 ATV accidents result in hospitalization each year in the U.S. alone. Without ATV insurance, the cost of medical payments, repairs and legal claims falls on your shoulders. If you cause an accident that results in property damage or injury to someone else, you could face court settlements and an expensive legal defense.
An ATV policy can reduce your financial risk by covering a portion of an ATV accident. If you do not have the cash on hand to take care of these costs by yourself, then all-terrain vehicle insurance is a good investment in your financial safety.
You can get quotes on a customized ATV insurance policy to fit your vehicle and your riding habits. Coverage comes in many forms, including the following:
If you have young riders in your family, it is especially important that you get sufficient liability and medical payments coverage. More than 25 percent of ATV accidents involve kids less than 16 years of age.
The cost of your ATV policy will depend in large part on the type of ATV you use, how new it is, how much horsepower it has and how you use it. For example, a UTV or side-by-side used primarily for ranching might cost less to insure than a similar UTV used in the mountains for hunting.
Smaller, faster ATVs like 3-wheelers and 4-wheelers carry higher risk of injury and accident and may cost more to insure than a stable, steady UTV. If you often ride the sand dunes or race, you may need to purchase extra liability coverage.
