Is there anything you can do to get more than the maximum NADA ACV from the insurance company if your vehicle is totaled?

You can try to get value of comparable cars around your local area (10 miles) and negotiate with your insurance in order to obtain a higher value. Explain why you think the amount offered won't be enough for you to obtain a car like the one you had. As far as I have researched online, the insurance has the last word; but if the insurance is not giving you the value of a currently available comparable car in your local area then their report is FLAWED and they will have to reconsider the offer. For more excellent informationa about your rights and the steps you can follow go to the your state's department of insurance website.

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.

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.

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.
