The same day that you determine you aren’t getting it back. It would be wise to wait until then because if the bank repo’d it to kinda just remind you that being Trio payments behind isn’t a good thing, you might get it back and then you don’t have to go through the entire insurance application process again. ReactionYeah for sure do not cancel anything until it is no longer in your name either. I’d wait until the title transfer is accomplish as well. ResponseYou should cancel your insurance the moment your car is repossessed.The moment the car is hooked up(as the above two repo morons will tell you)it is no longer your car.So if you would like to cover someone elses vehicle with your insurance you go right ahead but you are wasting your money and your insurance coverage.Dishonest repo guys(like the above two scumbags) want you to keep the insurance on the vehicle so if they harm the car or steal stuff from it it will go on your insurance. Response Amendment: Never cancel an insurance policy until you have a fresh policy in place. If you do it will cost you more in the long run. Insurance companies are looking for loyalty and longevity without lapse in coverage. Sometimes you can possibly suspend, cancel or reduce coverage but never cancel it. The moment the vehicle is repossessed does not release you from the contract agreement. Read it. In most cases until the vehicle is transferred out of your name via the title of ownership, you must maintain physical harm coverage or they can force place it and take the premium out of the proceeds. Reduce to minimum but don’t cancel it.

What should you do if after a car accident your insurance company claims they did not receive your payment and sent you a cancellation notice but you did not receive it?

Response .
Several answers apply here. Very first did you budge and if so did you send your insurance company a switch of address? Secondly did the accident take place before or after the effective date of cancellation? Insurance companies don’t have to prove you received the cancellation notice, they only have to prove they mailed the cancellation to the last known address you provided them. If you stir and do not send them a switch of address, you are in trouble. Lastly, did you pay the insurance premium for which they cancelled you? If so produce your cashed check and they will have to reinstate your policy by most state laws. If you did not pay as required, then they cancelled you for non payment, and in all likelihood you are cancelled and have no coverage. If the accident took place before the date of cancellation, go see an attorney.

You were rear ended Car A was totaled Mine had no harm you didnt claim it on your insurance what will happen?

If you do not feel like it is worth your time and resources to drive your car into their assessment shop, then you are by no means obligated to make a claim on your insurance, even if the other person was severely injured. Why? Because in a rear end accident, it’s car A’s fault, and unless you backed up into him (your fault) or someone glided him into you (which wouldn’t be your fault, but whoever hit him from behind) then it will remain that way. And the best news, if the driver of A was injured, his insurance will be paying the bill, NOT YOURS. In other words, don’t worry about it.

Yes, either by contacting the insurer or the agent to cancel it, or by not paying the next premium when due.

Further, if you are involved in a collision that is your fault and do not have liability insurance, you may be personally liable for the other party(ies) damages. In turn, if you are sued for those damages and a judgment is entered against you, the Financial Responsibility Laws of most states dictate that your license will be suspended until payment of the damages is arranged. You are generally also required to obtain an SR-22 which is a type of high risk liability insurance and to maintain it for a stated period of time provided by statute.

Technically they can do what ever they want and or think they can get away with. The condition that typically arises is that when you are canceled while a claim is open you will personally be held responsible for any repairs that have already been authorized. (reminisce that disclaimer you had to sign stating just that?) then to compound matters, no other insurance company will touch you while you have an open claim. Your mortgage company, assuming you do not own outright, will have an acceleration clause in your mortgage contract that kicks in when a non insured condition occurs and they have to append their own expensive coverage. Pretty bummed out yet? There is one avenue of recourse… If you have the resources to retain an attorney, you can sue the insurance company. Once the mortgage company sends you their notice, you now have authentic and lightly verifiable damages. Keeping in mind that insurance companies have deep pockets and are in the business of fighting legal battles on a daily basis they have the capability to wear you down and know this very well. Shoot for an instantaneous injunction staying the cancellation until the repairs can be finished. Being fair, this is a shot in the dark but a sympathetic judge may help you. Please post your outcome so as to help others.

Where and how do you get car insurance if a car insurance company cancels you?

The initial act that may occur to the consumer is merely to go to another insurer. However, that may be am overly simplistic treatment. Most states have statutes (laws) that delineate the circumstances under which an auto insurer may decline to renew (“drop”) an existing insured. One of these includes that the insurer makes a business decision to no longer write insurance in the state. However, terminating policies for that reason is a fairly lengthy process and requires regulatory approval. Most states have consumer protection laws as part of their Insurance Codes that define and delimit the types of offenses for which an insured may be canceled (if found guilty). More likely, at least for a very first offense, the result will be a premium increase. Additionally, the circumstances under which an insured may be “dropped” must be part of the underwriting guidelines that the insured files and must get approved as part of it application to transact insurance business in the state. Admittedly, tho’, some states are more/less consumer friendly than others. It is significant that the person whose insurance has been canceled budge quickly to substitute it. This is because motor vehicle authorities track cancellations and, if due to a cancellation, the persons is no longer in compliance with the state’s Financial Responsibility Law which requires the maintenance of auto insurance, his/her license/tags may be suspended until the insurance is substituted. For substituting you can check a comparisson site like this one where you can get free quotes from different companies

Insurance laws vary from state to state as with most laws. Generally speaking, if you file a fraudulent claim there will be penalties including but not limited to non-payment of the claim, suit by the company to make you pay the money back plus expenses and fees, state or federal fines, and state or federal prison time. More and more is being done by law enforcement and insurance companies to prevent and penalize those committing insurance fraud. The insurance company is not the final payer of fraudulent claims but we all are. Insurance is similar to a co-op as it is taking risk from one person and spreading it among many people to make the risk more affordable. One person cannot pay the loss if their home burns down so 1,000,000 may have to pay $500 each into a fund to pay for the number of people who have fires or whatever. This is insurance.

Car rental “insurance” is not always insurance. There are three types of coverages you can purchase. 1. Harm waiver is for harm to the car itself.

Liability covers injury or harm to property if the renter or covered driver is at fault in an accident while driving rental car.

Insurance can be canceled in a duo of ways. The easiest is to refrain from paying the next premium whereupon the policy will cancel for lack of payment of premium. However, it is significant, before you do this, to have suitable fresh insurance in place. You need this for self-protection, and also because all states require compliance with Financial Responsibility Laws. These laws require the maintenance of auto insurance, and inn the event of noncompliance, your license and tags can be suspended. Additionally, if the car is financed, the bank or finance company will require proof of insurance to protect its interest in the collateral. Failing receipt of the proof, it will obtain single party insurance on the collateral to protect its interest. This is usually much more costly than naming the financier as a loss payee on your collision coverage through your own insurer.
