Don’t Get Stuck Underwater Without a Flood Insurance Policy

Flood Insurance in Las Vegas

Monsoon season is right around the corner, which means it is time to make sure that you are prepared for torrential rains. As the rain pours down, it can easily cause flash flooding, which can lead to thousands of dollars’ worth of damage at your house. While your homeowners insurance will provide coverage for many perils, it will not provide any protection for damages caused during a flood.

The Spring Mountains and Mt. Charleston that surround the Las Vegas area make it very difficult for rain storms to pass easily, meaning the Las Vegas Valley can be drenched in a matter of minutes. Since the rain water cannot easily be soaked into the rocky terrain, it makes its way in to neighborhoods. When the rain continues for more than two hours, flash floods can occur, leading to serious damage. Investing in a specific flood insurance policy is the only way to ensure that you and your home are protected from any damage.

You have the option to choose from a stand-alone flood insurance policy or adding an endorsement to your existing home insurance policy. Keep in mind that a stand-alone policy will provide more coverage than an endorsement, so make sure to consider your risk level when deciding how much protection you need. You can also choose between coverage for just the structure of your home, or coverage for both the structure of your home and your contents that you keep in your house.

For all of your flood insurance coverage needs, contact the insurance professionals at All Nevada Insurance in Las Vegas, Nevada. As an independent insurance agency, we will work with you to ensure that you have the right amount of protection for your specific needs, all at the right price to fit your budget.

How a Personal Umbrella Insurance Policy Can Protect You

Personal Umbrella Insurance Coverage

Liability coverage is provided by both your homeowners and auto insurance policies. While you may think that the liability coverage that you already have is enough to keep you protected from any peril, it probably is not. Lawsuits are becoming more and more common, which means that your liability limits can easily be exceeded. Investing in a personal umbrella insurance policy is the best way to ensure that you have the coverage that you deserve.

Once the liability limits that are provided by your auto and homeowners insurance are reached, the liability provided by your umbrella policy will kick in. If you invite people over for a backyard BBQ this summer, and one of your friends slips and breaks their arm, you can be held responsible for their medical bills. They may also sue you to cover any lost wages if they are not able to go into work, or for pain and suffering. If you are only relying on only your home insurance liability, you can be left paying for the damages out of your own pocket. If you do not have the financial means to cover the cost, your assets can be seized to cover the bills.

Typical umbrella insurance policies start at $1 million in coverage, and then increase in million dollar increments. All this coverage will come at a very low cost, only costing a few hundred dollars for coverage for the whole year. While $1 million in coverage may seem like way too much protection, it probably is not. With the high cost of medical bills and court fees during a lawsuit, the million dollars in coverage will provide the protection that you need.

Are You Properly Protected on the Road?

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Las Vegas is one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the world, which can make the roads very congested for Las Vegas natives. Accidents are very common, and most times, someone else is at fault for the crash. This leads to one of the other biggest issues in Las Vegas – people who drive without auto insurance. Over 25 percent of people on Las Vegas area roads are driving illegally, which is why investing in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is so important.

Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage will provide protection if you are hit by another driver that does not have auto insurance, or does not have enough auto insurance coverage to cover the damages that are incurred during the accident. It will provide coverage up to the limit of your policy. It will also provide coverage after a hit and run accident if the other driver cannot be found.

Even if the other driver does have state mandated auto insurance, it may not be enough to cover the damages of the accident. In Nevada, you are legally required to carry at least $15,000 in bodily injury liability coverage for one person, or $30,000 for bodily injuries for more than one person in an accident. You also have to carry at least $10,000 in property damage liability. It is important to keep in mind that these are only the minimum required limits, and they can easily be exceeded from just one accident. Investing in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage can help to ensure that you are not left financially devastated after just one incident.

Spring Pea & Prosciutto Pasta Recipe

Use Seasonal Ingredients To Whip Up This Delicious Dinner

Peas and asparagus are in season right now, making them the perfect addition to a hearty prosciutto pasta dinner. Here is a spring recipe your whole family is sure to love that is as nourishing as it is delicious. To make this pea and prosciutto pasta, you will need.

  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • ½ pound of spring onion, cut into ¼ inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons of shallot, minced
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • ½ cup of dry white wine
  • ½ cup of low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 ½ pounds of asparagus, cut into ¾ inch pieces
  • 2 cups of fresh shelled peas
  • 1 pound of shell pasta
  • 1 head of butter lettuce, cut into ¾ inch pieces
  • 1 cup of Parmesan cheese + more for serving
  • ½ cup of parsley, chopped
  • 4 ounces of prosciutto, cut into ½ inch pieces

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and shallot and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté until tender (8 minutes). Add in the wine and increase the heat to medium-high. Simmer for 3 minutes, then add the broth. Bring to a simmer, then set aside.

In a pot of boiling water, cook the asparagus (2 to 4 minutes). Transfer to an ice bath. Return the pot to boiling, then cook the peas (2 minutes). Let them rest in the ice bath, then drain the vegetables.

Return the pot to boiling again, then cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the water after pasta is done.

As the pasta cooks, reheat the onion/wine mixture. Add the lettuce and stir until wilted (1 minute). Add the asparagus and peas, stirring until everything is warmed through. Add in the pasta, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Toss to coat, gradually adding the reserved pasta-cooking water.

Transfer to a large bowl, top with prosciutto, and serve. Enjoy!

The Priciest Cars To Insure

2015’s Top Dollar Cars, Insurance Wise

When you are thinking about buying a car, the cost of insurance coverage is probably low on your list of priorities. That does not mean, however, that it is something you should just skip thinking about. Certain cars are much more costly to insure, whether because they are made of carbon fiber or other top-dollar material, have powerful engines that could lead to more damage in an accident, or require replacement parts that have to be imported from overseas. So you do not get caught with a surprisingly high premium, here is a list of 2015’s most expensive vehicles to insure.

  1. Nissan GT-R Nismo ($3,574)
  2. Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Convertible ($3,573)
  3. Dodge SRT Viper ($3,318)
  4. Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet ($3,216)
  5. Audi R8 5.2 Spyder Quattro ($3,206)
  6. Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive ($3,174)
  7. BMW 760Li ($3,147)
  8. BMW M6 Convertible ($3,115)
  9. Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4Matic Wagon ($3,042)
  10. Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4Matic Sedan ($2,972)

Bear in mind that the average cost of covering a 2015 vehicle is $1,555. That means that you can expect to pay twice as much to protect the cars on this list. If you are hoping to keep more money in your pocket and reduce the cost of ownership for yourself, keep away from these pricey vehicles. While they may look good on the road, they could leave your bank account looking lackluster.

Figuring out how much it will cost to insure your car should not have to be a headache. Call your dedicated Nevada insurance agent before you buy to get a quote on your coverage.

Minimizing Your Motorcycle Insurance Premiums

How To Save Money On Your Motorcycle Coverage

You love your motorcycle. It allows you to maneuver through traffic, park easily, and save at the gas pump. Unfortunately, you may be seeing the saving at the gas station turning around and pouring straight into your motorcycle insurance premiums. While you know you need to maintain this coverage, you probably feel a bit peeved each month when the bill comes. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to help you save!

  • Maintain a good driving record. This may seem like a no-duh suggestion, but many people do not capitalize on it. If you have been driving without a moving violation or an accident for a time, talk to your insurance agent. He or she may be able to help you drive down your premiums based on your driving history.
  • If you have been in an accident, or if you are under 25, consider taking a training course. Graduating from one of these courses can help negate the negative repercussions of being a high-risk driver, helping you save more money.
  • Ask your insurance agent how you can save. Membership in a motorcycle association can help you save, your age could earn you mature rider discounts, or writing all of your policies together can reduce your premiums.
  • Store your bike safely. Deciding to park your motorcycle in your garage rather than on the street each night will increase its safety, helping you keep more money in your pocket.
