A reminder of what happens after a total car loss accident
After a car accident, an insurance adjuster appointed by the relevant insurance company investigates the crash and establishes the damage to the car. If the insurance adjuster finds that the repair cost or loss of value exceeds the insured value, the insurance company may deem the vehicle a “total loss” and offer to reimburse policyholders for the value of the vehicle as of the day of the accident.
Did the insurer’s offer after the total car loss accident include sales tax and other fees?
Total loss car accident class action lawsuits filed against insurance providers claim that insurance companies violate their own contracts, by failing to reimburse policyholders for sales tax, title transfer fees, tag transfer fees and more. They argue that sales tax and other fees “are components of ‘actual cash value’ under the policy.” And that these costs are mandatory when purchasing or leasing a replacement vehicle.
