If this unlicensed driver was driving your car with your knowledge, you are screwed. But if you mean an unlicensed driver hit your car, if you have full coverage you should be able to collect on your insurance. The insurance will make the check to the leinholder and they will give you any excess or expect you to make up any shortage to pay off the loan.

In some cases, if you did give permission for the uninsured driver, your insurance company will pay for the loss but make you sign an exclusion stating that the driver will not be covered in the future for any reason. You would be liable for full cost if it happens again. You can also expect a spike in your rates if they reside with you.

Some insurance companies will sell the car back to the owner. Others sell the totaled car to a salvage yard.

if your car is worth 10k and u own 20k and your car gets totaled, your car insurance will cover 10k for what your car is worth and cap will cover the rest. you wont get any money but you also wont have any monthly payments anymore.

If you want to keep a totaled car, the insurance company will determine the salvage value and deduct that from your settlement check. You can still get liability insurance (if there are no safety issues related to the damage), but not collision or comprehensive unless you have the repairs made.

Your insurance owes you the value of the vehicle minus your deductible. If you owed the bank more than this, you are responsible for the excess.

If you owe on the car, you will still have to make your payments. Also, depending on your coverage your insurance company can pay off the car and give you something for another. But, it won't be much since they will only pay the low Kelley blue book.

If you have the proper insurance or you were hit by someone you will surrender the car and the title to the insurance company and they will pay you the actual cash value of the car before it was hit.

Typically you need a car with insurance to get a title loan. If your car is totaled, the loan company are entitled to that money since they hold the title for your car.

Let's see if I can follow this. Insurance company A is at fault because of actions caused by driver A. Driver B who is not at fault is injured, but is unlicensed, and Auto B has been totalled. Insurance company A is going to have to pay damages to Driver B for property damage as well as for injuries because Driver A is deemed at fault. The fact that Driver B is unlicensed is a non-moving violation and Driver B will have to pay a substantial fines for these issues.

I was most relieved to find out that my insurance company agreed with my statement that it had been totaled. I came out ahead when my expenses were totaled up.

If a car is totaled in an accident and only liability insurance is present, there is a chance that the other party's insurance will pay for the vehicle if the accident was their fault. If a car is totaled, but no others were involved, then the responsibility falls on the registered owner. This will not release the registered owner from paying for the vehicle, either, if money is still owed on the car.

A vehicle is totaled if it cost too much to repair it. Usually, insurance companies determine whether or not a vehicle is totaled.

Typically, your deal with the bank that you bought your car through is separate from your car insurance. However, many insurance companies offer "gap" insurance to cover this issue, so that the car is paid off if it is totaled. Talk to your agent, and they can tell you exactly what coverage you have and how much they'll pay. The insurance company (yours) will look the car and if it is totaled they will give you the money for its current value, minus your deductible. If its repairable, they will give you the money to repair it, minus your deductible. Any money left on the car payments after the amount your insurance pays is your responsibility, unless your insurance specifically covers this. If you didn't have insurance, then you lose it all, no money to fix or replace the car, and you still have to pay for the car. Never drive a car without insurance, period.

the automobile is totaled which means the insurance co. will pay you the low blue book value of the car rather than paying to have it fixed.

User Avatar

It would depend on why the car was totaled and who's fault the accident was and what time of insurance do you have PLPD or Full Coverage

User Avatar

An insurance company declares a vehicle totaled when the cost to fix the vehicle exceeds 70% or more of its market value.

If you've got full coverage insurance, make a claim. They should take over payments. You'll be car-less, but won't owe anymore.

A car is not totaled in a chapter 13. A car may be totaled while the owner is in a chapter 13. If the car was fully exempted, nothing happens. If you need to buy a new car, you will have to get permission from the bankruptcy court after you file a specific purchase agreement (car loan) which should not seriously affect your plan payments. Why are you not asking your lawyer?

Full coverage auto insurance covers everything. If the car is totaled they will will replace it. Liability auto insurance will only cover medical bills, and not the car if it is totaled.

User Avatar

get a good job............you will (assuming you are at fault for this loss) be require to pay for the totaled vehicle.........

User Avatar

If you weren't making your payments yes. It would only be repossessed if you weren't making your payments.

When a vehicle covered by insurance gets wrecked, the insurance company looks at how much it will cost to repair. If repairing the bike costs more than it is worth, then the insurance company declares it totaled and pays for a replacement.

I totaled my Mustang and was able to buy it back from the insurance company. They gave me the Blue-Book value less my $500 deductable. They would not insure it after I repaired it, I had to switch insurance carriers to get coverage.
