Auto Insurance Question from Olivette, Missouri
Answer given on October 15, 2019
If a vehicle is considered a total loss by an insurance company, and they have accepted responsibility for the damage and the policy has a loss payee listing the finance company for a loan on the vehicle, the insurance company does have to make the payment to the finance company. Many insurance companies will list both the loss payee and the insured on the insurance policy on the settlement check, to be sure that both entities are properly represented. The amount of the actual cash value of the car may not be sufficient to pay off the loan on the car. If that is the case, the insured will owe the difference to the finance company.
If there is any payment for a rental car, bodily injury to the occupant of the vehicle, that would be payable directly to the named insured on the policy, or the injured person. They will also sometimes make payment directly to the rental car company, unless the insured person has already paid the rental car company.
