That's about it. The car is totaled. The money is still owed. If there was a loan, you'd better have insurance and if you are lucky, the insurance will cover MOST of what you still owe.

Answer

Your insurance co. is obligated by law to satisfy any payment up to the policy's limits. If there are money owed after that, you can sue the other driver for the money owed or be sued, whatever applies.

What happens after your car is totaled and you only have liability?

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.


What do you do if your motorcycle is totaled in an accident with no insurance but you still owe on the bike?

What happens if the car was totaled in an accident and money was still owed and accident is your fault?

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.


What can happen if after an At Fault accident the auto is totaled and you choose to cancel the insurance because you will not drive again and there are personal injury claims not settled?

What does the your insurance company do to a car if it is totaled and you only have liability coverage?

If you caused the accident and you totaled your car and you only have liability insurance, your insurance company does not do anything to your car. The car was taken away by the tow truck driver. You may pay to haul it somewhere to be repaired or you may sell it to a junk yard. If the other driver caused the accident, then his insurance company buys your car. It still goes to a junk yard to be recycled. That way, however, you will get some money. Either way, you are entitled to get your personal stuff out of the car.


If you are in a car accident and the car is totaled does your car loan get paid off through insurance?

A policy you get today will not cover you for a collision you had last week.


What do you do if your insurance lapses during an accident?

Your insurance is either valid on the day of your accident or it isn't.

If your policy was not in effect the day of the accident then coverage will not apply.

Can a totaled car be fixed?

It depends on why it was totaled. If it's cosmetic damage that totaled the car (like a shallow sideswipe) of course. If it's structural, like frame damage, maybe. If it was in a flood, it's probably not a good idea to fix it since quirky electrical problems will haunt the car forever. If it is repaired it would still carry a totaled title but it can be qualified with the brand 'totaled/reconstructed' on the new title.
