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.

This will not release the registered owner from paying for the vehicle, either, if money is still owed on the car.

Do I need a salvage title if the Ins. Co. wrote off the car as a total loss and paid me and I kept the car?

Typically, when an insurance co. pays you for a totaled car you surrender the car and the title to them so it's weird that you still have the car at all! Once you surrender the car to the insurance co. they report it as totaled and usually auction the car off to recoup some of their money. Your situation is odd.


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.
