Am I required to use insurance money to replace roof?

Insurance companies grant money to correct issues from claims. If a person receives money to replace a roof from an insurance company, the money should be used for the repair. If a person decides to not use the money to replace the roof, there could be issues selling the home. The value of the home could decrease. Another issue a person may encounter is the risk of other damages resulting from the roof not being repaired.

Insurance is based on liability. In other words the person who is at fault must pay for any damage caused. It makes no difference whether the at-fault driver crashes into an animal, a person, a parked car, a moving vehicle or even a wall or some street furniture. The problem in most cases is (1) finding the person responsible and (2) recovering the money if they are not covered by insurance. Trying to prove it is the first step.

Who to file claim with when you are rear ended?

I was rear ended a while ago by a person who was renting a vehicle. She had insurance on the rental and her own vehicle through Safe Auto. Hopefully you exchanged info. with the person that rear ended you! In my case, we exchanged info. Her insurance called me but had told me that since she had rental insurance that the rental place would cover the damages to my vehicle. That was a lie on Safe Auto's behalf. Safe Auto was liable for the damages to my vehicle and after getting on them about my claim through them, I was finally reimbursed. Point being that the claim should be filed through their (the person that rear ended you) insurance company. If you didn't get any of the other person's info. then I would suggest talking with your own insurance company.

Depends, if a tree falls on your car and you pay for damages yourself then no. If another party is involved in the accident then yes.

The data from the accident is then reported into the CLUE insurance database and will cause your rates to raise since the database 'sees' that you were involved in an accident. Bottom line, it's best to report to your insurance yourself and let them pay out since you're going to feel the pinch anyway.
