Can I file a claim with my insurance company if I've already paid for repairs to my vehicle?

Even if you have paid for the repairs on your vehicle, your insurance company should cover the damage you caused to the other driver if your policy was active at the time of the crash. I would recommend not paying the other party anything until you've contacted your company to start the claims process.

Will homeowners insurance cover a tree falling on my house when I cut it down?

It's very likely that you will be covered, assuming that your homeowners insurance policy is active and in good standing. Learn more about fallen tree damage and home insurance.

Can an insurance company recant liability and ask for a refund one month after paying me for damages to my vehicle?

I have not heard of a claim decision being reversed and asking for the claims payout money back. They should be providing you with evidence of why they are refusing to pay the claim — if you haven't asked for this already, you should demand it.

Can a lender dictate what my deductible is?

Unfortunately, the terms of your loan can dictate what your coverage deductibles must be. Your lienholder may not necessarily notice right away if you change your deductible, but if they catch on they will add force-placed insurance, also known as collateral protection insurance, as a part of your monthly payments.
