What do you do if the insurance for a totaled car does not pay off the car loan?
I faced the same thing about a year ago. The insurance company did not want to give me what was needed. I got on-line and found many cars that were just like mine and displayed them that my car was worth more than they were wanting to give me. They still did not want to give me what the car was worth. So I went to puny claims court and filed suit on the driver of the other car. The person’s insurance has to represent them. Also go and look at the comps that the insurance company are using for your car to see if you can substitute the car for what they want to give you. ResponseUltimately it is your responsibility that you either made low payments, took out a very long loan, or picked a car with high depreciation. The insurance company is not liable for the inflated amount you owe–only what the car is worth. ResponseThe insurance company will only give you the value of the vehicle, as per the “Kelly Blue Book”. They will also send an appraiser out to see what the condition of the car was, as in mileage, any previous harm. If the accident was another driver’s fault, you have to sue him and/or his insurance company for the remaining balance.Whatever you borrowed to obtain the vehicle wil always be more than the car is worth. You have already lost money on it as soon as you drove it off the car lot. But do your research. Go online for “Kelly Blue Book”, and get the estimate of the car’s value. If it is more, then dispute it with the insurance company. Print the page out. ResponseWhen you bought the car fresh or used from the dealer you had the option to purchase something called GAP INSURANCE from them (the Dealer, not the insurance company) for your exact situation. If you did not have enough equity in your car for the insurance pay off to cover it AND did not have gap insurance. basically you are screwed and responsible for the rest of the loan amount car or no car. Some people believe Gap insurance is a rip off so they do not suggest it to you and some just don’t know what it is. They do not need to be selling cars. Not fair but the way of life. Father is an insurance sales man. I also had a doll hit me I had GAP insurance and she did not. She still had to pay off the balance on the loan even however she did not have the car. The courts won’t do much because you had the option to purchase gap insurance and you did not, it does not matter that you did not know.

Will car insurance pay for a car totaled in a DUI accident?
It should. If the “at fault” vehicle is insured, it’s supposed to cover the victim’s vehicle 100%. If the “at fault” vehicle has comprehensive and collision insurance that insurance is supposed to cover the at fault vehicle up to the deductable amount.Note that the buzzed driver will liberate his insurance and be required to get the VERY expensive DUI “insurance endorsment” since he/she is now in the highest risk bracket..
BTW, when a inebriated driver causes a collision it’s not called an “accident”. Accident is when things just happen. Driving inebriated is the CAUSE of the collision and as such the collision is not called an accident. Call it a wreck, crash or just about anything else that takes away the implication of a random act.
If you only have liability and your car is totaled in an accident will your insurance pay for it?
Car insurance:liabiltityNo. Because liability only covers the damages to the other persons car in an accident. “Trio. Property Harm LiabilityThis coverage pays for harm you (or someone driving the car with your permission) may cause to someone else’s property. Usually, this means harm to someone elseï¿½s car, but it also includes harm to lamp posts, telephone poles, fences, buildings or other structures your car hit.” See the link below for more information on coverage. ReactionNo. Liability takes care of the other driver and his vehicle only. ReactionNo. Unluckily, liability only covers the OTHER man’s car. If you do not buy the “comprehensive and collision” coverage, YOUR car is only covered if the OTHER stud is at fault. ReactionIn the UK there are three main types of car insurance: 1. third party; Two. third party fire and theft and Three. comprehensive. The very first type will not pay for harm to your vehicle in any event; the 2nd will pay if harm to your car is caused due to fire or theft and the third will pay in any event for harm to your vehicle. If however harm is caused by the user of another vehicle you will be entitled to claim compensation from the other driver’s motor insurance for your vehicle harm and if no insurance is in place form the Motor Insurers Bureau. See the related link entitled “car accident claim” to see how to demonstrate legal fault for your car accident.

(other than being on the road at all of course?)….i can see no way that a company could request that you pay them back….they shouldn’t have lodged the claim till all info was in……….
If your child’s car and insurance are in her name but she resides at your home can you be sued if she is arrested with a DUI and there is an injury or death?
It depends on the age of the child. Technically, the parent is responsible for anything that the child does up to the age of resposibility, whatever that is in your state. Instead of worrying so much about whether you’ll be sued, you should have more concern regarding what’s about to happen to your daughter and what the family of the injured/deceased is going through.

If my car is totaled and not paid for will your insurance pay for it?
Car Loans .
In most cases, insurance companies are only required to pay up to the book value of your car. What this means is that if you owe $15,000 on a car loan and the car is only worth $12,000, you will still be held responsible for the remaining balance which in this case would be $Three,000. This is also known as being upside down. If you purchase GAP, a.k.a a debt cancellation contract, then you would not be held liable for the remaining $Trio,000. This is why it pays to purchase a car that has good residual value meaning it shouldn’t depreciate much swifter than you are able to pay off your loan.
Can you be arrested for no car insurance in the State of Michigan?
Yes you can, Depending on where you live in Michigan. I recently got arrested a few days ago and car impounded because I didnt have car insurance. The police officer desired to search my car so i told him no, he attempted to do everything in his power to search that car, so he searched for something wrong, found out my insurance expired a month ago, then told me that I would be put in jail if I didnt let him search my car. I denied and they put me in jail over night. When I got out the next day, I went to the impound yard and by the looks of it they searched my car anyways because It was trashed and some stuff on my car was broked (cup holders,middle console,doors etc. So yeah, just be careful.

What if you don’t pay your car insurance?
Very first, your policy will be cancelled. Then, depending on what state you live in, the insurance company reports the cancellation to your Motor Vehicles department. Depending on how efficient they are, either your drivers license or car registration (or both) can be revoked. In some states, law enforcement will come to your residence and liquidate the plates from the vehicle. If you have a lien on the vehicle, you’re still paying on it, your lender may impose their own insurance on the vehicle. This is expensive, and does nothing to protect you. It only protects the bank in the event the car gets totaled. In many states, lender-imposed insurance does not meet state standards, so you still get revoked, and still have to pay for the car and the lender-imposed insurance. Then you have to pay the state to get your license/tags back, plus a penalty. You have to pay a large down payment to re-establish normal insurance. In some states, you may be compelled to get SR22 insurance, which is up to three time as expensive, before you can get your license back. It’s lighter and cheaper by far to pay the car insurance bill on time.
Can you get a arrested for not paying a car loan?

A judge may also award extra damages based upon the severity of the violations (a man was recently awarded a multi million dollar lawsuit against a collection agency which screamed racial obscenities to him – and he didn’t even owe them money).

How long can an insurance co take to pay for your totaled car?
The general reaction, absent a contractual or statutory requirement is, “a reasonable time”. When a car is determined to be a total loss, it essentially means that the insurer has determined that the cost of repair exceeds (usually, some statutory) percentage of the actual cash value of the car. In that example, the law requires that the be announced to be a total loss. The time consuming part of that process can be in determining the actual cash value of a car of like kind, quality, and other features. While there are commercial guides to help in that determination, often there is a period of negotiation with the holder as to the final value. Many States provide that once a claim has been resolved by agreement as to the value, and all necessary documents have been signed (in this case, proof of claim, title certificate, and other documents that the State or the insurance company may reasonable require), payment must be made within 30 days. However, the period may be shorter or longer and State law will govern.
Who do pay your car insurance deductible to?
Your deductible only gets paid in the event of a claim. For example, you tap a light pole in the mall parking lot. The pole is ok but your car is bruised. If you have comprehensive coverage on your car, your insurance company will pay a claim to have it repaired. So, you get a assets shop who says it will cost $1,400 to fit it. If your deductible is, say, $500.00, your insurance company cuts a check to the bod shop for $900.00 which is the difference inbetween the harm repair bill and the deductible. Thus, you must come up with the $500.00 amount.

Why do you have to pay insurance when purchasing a car?
There are a number of reasons, two of which include: 1. The financial responsibility law of every state requires liability auto insurance as a condition of registration. This ensures that the holder has some minimum level of insurance that will reaction to an virginal party if the insured vehicle’s driver is negligent (careless) and causes harm to the person or property of the virginal party. Two. If the vehicle is financed, the lender will require collision coverage. This provides a source of money from which the car can be repaired in the event of a collision. The lender is worried with this because it loaned money based upon the value of the undamaged vehicle. Repair may therefore restore (most) of the value of the repaired car.
Do you need to still pay insurance when your car is totaled?
Assuming that you had collision coverage on your car, when it is totalled, the insurer pays the “actual cash value” of the car, less the collision deductible. This represents the market value of the car instantaneously before the collision. It takes into account make, model, mileage, condition, and other features. When the car is totalled, you will be given the option of keeping the salvage or letting the insurer keep it. If you keep it, the amount paid to you will be diminished by the value of the salvage. If you keep it the salvage and have the car repaired, sometimes you are permitted to obtain a “salvage title” from the motor vehicle authorities. If the vehicle, as rebuilt, is roadworthy, you will need to insure it as you would any other vehicle.
Does your car insurance go up if you get arrested?

Do you pay car insurance when you are in the army?
If the car will be driven while one is in the army, liability insurance should be maintained on the proprietor and on the person/people who will be driving it. This insurance is protection against claims by third parties based upon negligence by the driver. Many states hold the possessor vicariously liable for the negligence of the driver and apply a presumption that the proprietor gave permission to the driver to use the vehicle. Additionally, physical harm coverage should be maintained on it (collision and comprehensive). These pay for the repair of the vehicle in the event of physical harm to it. If the car is garaged while the possessor is in the service, one can take a chance and not maintain physical harm coverage on it. However, keep in mind that if the car is financed, the lender may require that physical harm coverage be maintained until the loan is paid with the lender being named on the policyas a loss payee. The failure to do so may constitute a breach of the loan contract. If the lender learns that physical harm coverage has lapsed, it may purchase “single interest” physical harm coverage and charge the premium to the borrower by adding the premium to the loan balance. The premium for this type of insurance is usually significantly greater than were the insured to have kept physical harm coverage in place as required by the lender.
When your car is totaled but you don’t have the title will the insurance pay you?
It depends on why you don’t have the title. If you don’t have it because it is financed then yes. The insurance company will do the work for you of getting the title released from the bank. If you don’t have it because you don’t own the vehicle then no the company will not pay you. Legally they cannot pay you for a vehicle that you don’t own just like you cannot insurance a vehicle you don’t own. They also cannot pay the true proprietor because that person does not have a legal contract of insurance with the company. No one gets paid.
