They are only responsible for "replacment value". It's up to the owner to find a vehicle that can replaced the wrecked one. Insurance companies take into consideration the fact that the wrecked vehicle has been used and depreciated. They usually take into consideration the fact that you will have to spend time looking for a replacment and you will need temporary transportation, but if the owner is too demanding or pushy the adjuster may decide to not offer full value. Sometimes it's to your advantage to go to a lawyer although lawyers want to be paid to and it may cost more than it's worth. In the event of conflict, most insurance companies agree to "arbitration" by an independant, 3rd party. That might be your best bet.

This depends on what the settlement covers I have required the insurance company to allow me to retain ownership, this reduces the settlement. Or the if you do not specify that this is what you want the insurance company gets the car.

Legally, if the company pays you for the totaled vehicle, it belongs to them. You can offer (if they don't) to by the scraps back. This would be deducted from your settlement and you would be paid the difference.

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.

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

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.

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.

The insurance company will pay the finance company not you.

The insurance company. They have in theory bought the car or what was left of it.

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.

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

She should get half the insurance settlement, assuming he got a settlement. The insurance company cannot give just him a check since he's not the only name on the title - she had to sign the title over, too! Now, assuming he only had liability insurance on the truck and he was responsible for the accident...oh well! Time for Judge Judy!

The insurance company will make you an offer.

User Avatar

The insurance company will pay you the worth of your car minus your deductible.

User Avatar

What. Why would you think this is required? An insurance company will not find you a new vehicle is your is totaled, they will pay you the actual cash value of the vehicle you had.

User Avatar

Hi, It depends on what type of insurance you had. Liability, full coverage...etc...Call your insurance company and find out.

can be done by insurance company at time it is totaled out by them

User Avatar

No, the finance company would simply refund any monies they charged you for forced placed insurance and your primary insurance company would be responsible for footing the bill.

User Avatar

If another person was at fault for the accident, you will need to go after their insurance company. If you are liability only, your insurance company will not pay for anything.

User Avatar

If the insurance does not cover the expense it is likely the person to whom the vehicle is registered will be responsible for towing and any other subsequent charges such as storage fees.

User Avatar

you still owe on the motorcycle. that's why banks require full coverage at the time of the loan-so that they will get their money. Since there is no insurance company, YOU are responsible for paying off the loan.

User Avatar

In some cases you can buy your car back from the insurance company or from the scrapyard if the vehicle is totaled. You will need to check your insurance policy to see what type of stance they take on this purchase.

User Avatar

most time if the car was in an accident and is totaled you will have to by it back from your insurance company

User Avatar

Yes, if your insurance company will not pay it all.

If the accident is your fault, your insurance company is not going to pay out anything. If it is the other person's fault, the other insurance company will be liable.
