How do you know if you car is totaled?

You need to file a claim with your auto insurance carrier. The insurance adjuster will physically examine the vehicle's damage. If the estimated cost to repair all damages exceeds the total value of the car, then the insurance company will total the car. This means they will write you (or the lender) a check for the total value of the car before damages.Most of the above is true but a car is considered totaled when the repair costs exceed 50-75% (depending on the state you live in) of its actual cash value. If it is totaled you will sign the title over to the insurance company and they will take ownership of the car after they pay you.

How long to get a check from your insurance for your totaled car when you are at fault and the other car has minor to moderate damage?

If you have comprehensive and collision the insurance company covers your car for loss. Unfortunately, most people don't have comp & collision after the car is paid off. If the bank still has an interest in the car, they will make demand of the insurance company and the BANK will be paid first. After that, if any money is left over you might get a check.

Your car was totaled no other car involved you had full coverage insurance and GAP insurance will you be reimbursed for your loss or will it all go to the finance company?

If the value of the car is less than what you owe you are stuck with the balance as far as gap coverage goes you will have to check with your insurance company they're all different

Can a claim be denied if you drop a totaled car to add new car before the claim is settled?

Check your policy. I'd expect that as long as the totaled car was covered on the date of the crash that totaled it, you'd be covered - after all, if you weren't going to replace the car, would they expect you to keep paying at all? BUT, that all said, it's really your policy that will tell you the answer. Any insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company, and anything they say in the contract - that's the way it is.

What will happen if you cant pay back a tile loan and you junked the car?

If you can't pay back the title loan from a pawn shop due to being totaled and you got a cut check from your insurance company, I suggest you use that check to pay off that loan to avoid a lawsuit because the pawn shop will not see that insurance check you got from the totaled car. If you don't pay them off and they know the car is totaled, then they will come after you in civil court for the amount of the loan + damages + fees. If you got no check from the insurance company then they will just come after you for the loan. They do not fully own the vehicle because you did not sign over the title to the pawn shop. You are not allowed to sign it over to them unless you are really selling it. Some states do allow this but check with your state laws about it. All they are going to do is file a lawsuit against you for the amount of the loan unless you made payment agreements with the Pawn Shop which I would do.
