Coverage & Claims

What are the coverage limits on comprehensive and collision?

Thanks for the question! This is because the limits for these coverages are variable. At the point of a claim, the maximum an insurance company will usually pay is the actual cash value of the vehicle unless stated otherwise.

Coverage & Claims

Can I dispute the payout amount my insurance company wants to give me?

Actual cash value (ACV) from your insurance is not the same as an adjusted amount — it's an estimate on their books. I would get another person to look at the vehicle and get another opinion on the adjustment to make sure it was accurate before trying to fight the claims department. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Will I get a new car after an accident?

The answer to that really depends on your policy. If you don't have a specific part of your policy that outlines "new car replacement," you will most likely get the actual cost value of your vehicle.

My uninsured vehicle was hit by a insured vehicle

Although you're required to carry at least liability insurance in California, your uninsured status shouldn't affect your ability to have a claim paid out. In terms of what you will receive for your vehicle, you will most likely be cut a check for the actual cash value of the vehicle.

What is the difference between actual cash value and replacement cost coverage?

There is a huge difference between the two valuation types when it comes to homeowners insurance. Replacement cost coverage means you would receive the amount of money it would take to replace your personal items (like a camera, for example) brand new.
