Can an insurance company collect from a person who they already paid a claim if the person sues and gets money?

Yes they can, but it depend on the case though. If you were awarded damages by the court for damages already paid by your insurance company then you are required by law to reimburse the insurance company, Otherwise you will have received double indemnity (you got paid twice) which is illegal and a felony. Any part of your judgment award for which you were not covered by insurance you can keep. But anything for which you were already paid by your insurer you must pay back to that insurer, It's the Law.
