The very first post on the Nevada Trucking Law Blog discusses when a trucking company must disclose its bodily injury liability policy limit to an injured party. However, an update to that 2008 post is necessary because, as is true for most things in life, the law is always changing.
It is still true that if the injured party files a law suit, the motor carrier is obliged to produce its liability policy for inspection or for copying. Nevada Rule of Civil Procedure 16.1 (a)(1)(D) or Federal Rule of Civil Procedure Rule 26(a)(1)(A)(iii).
But in 2013, the legislature amended the law that controls the disclosure of policy information before suit is filed. N.R.S. 690B.042 no longer applies exclusively to “private passenger cars”. Instead, the law now applies to “passenger cars”. For purposes of this law, a passenger car means “a motor vehicle designed for carrying 10 persons or less, except a motorcycle or motor-driven cycle.” NRS 482.087.
