Coverage & Claims

Will gap insurance pay out if I buy the salvaged vehicle from the insurance company?

Your gap coverage should still cover the $2,000 owed on the loan regardless of what happens after that. I would definitely check directly with your insurance company to make sure there is no stipulation that prevents this if you choose to buy back the salvage title.

Coverage & Claims

Can the other person still file an insurance claim against me if I wasn't issued a citation?

Yes, regardless of police involvement the other party can file a claim against you if you were at-fault. Your insurance will want to settle the claim to avoid a lawsuit.

Coverage & Claims

My car was hit by a drunk driver that ran off. Why do I owe a deductible if my car was damaged in a hit and run?

Your insurer should not at all be listing you as the liable or at-fault party in a hit-and-run claim. I recommend contacting your insurance company to ensure they are filing the claim accurately.

Coverage & Claims

What is the No Pay, No Play law in Alaska? What happens if both parties in an accident are uninsured?

Unless you were under the influence, drove recklessly, acted with intent, or fled the scene in a hit-and-run, I don't necessarily think you could be charged for a felony if you've been cooperative. However, a suit could be filed against you for damages.

Coverage & Claims

We had an accident while towing someone else's car. Whose insurance pays for the damage?

Whose company pays for the towing damage will be very specific to which insurer you have a policy with. Many companies will not cover any type of towing equipment without a special endorsement.

Coverage & Claims
Eligibility

Does uninsured motorist coverage cover borrowed vehicles?

Sorry to hear about the accident. From my understanding of your situation, as long as you are a covered driver, his uninsured motorist coverage should apply to you.

Coverage & Claims

If my car is determined a total loss in an accident, will my gap insurance cover the down payment used to secure my loan?

Gap insurance will only cover what is left on your loan after an insurance company pays out. Gap coverage is best purchased if you are going to have a difference between the loan amount and the value of the vehicle.

Coverage & Claims

How can an insurance company add an accident to your record that never happened?

I would contact the insurance company that listed the claim and start a dispute. They really shouldn't be able to put you down for this claim. I imagine it was an error made on their part if it wasn't even your insured vehicle.

Coverage & Claims

Can my new insurer cover a bodily injury claim made against me from my past accident when I was covered by a different company?

Unfortunately, State Farm will not handle your recent bodily injury claim since you no longer have a policy with them. Progressive would be the one to handle that claim since that is your current active plan.

How do I get a false claim off my insurance report?

I would call my prior insurance company (your renters provider) showing the false claim and see how they have it marked. I would also have them send confirmation that the claim was dropped and not paid out.
