Auto Insurance Claims

If the insurance adjustor assessed the hail damage to your car and the company sent a check can you keep it without repairing the vehicle?

Yes you can. one of my relatives did. But if the damamge was

really bad, you probably should get it fixed. * Yes, unless a bank

or finance company has a lien on the vehicle. The lienholder will

insist that the damage be repaired or the money be used to reduce

the loan. But if you own it free and clear, the insurance

reimbursed you for the reduced value of the car. HOWEVER if you do

not have this damage repaired, any future damage will not be fully
